Tamils across the state of California held a candle lit vigil to commemorate the 4th year anniversary of the Mullvaikkal massacre.
Speakers at the events, organised by the May 17 movement, that took place in Santa Monica and San Jose, condemned the international community’s failure to recognise the genocide of the Eelam Tamil nation, and called upon the Eelam Tamil diaspora to pressure the United Nations to facilitate a referendum on Tamil Eelam.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
