On November 25th the Tamil Youth Organization (TYO) Canada, in partnership with the Tamil Students' Associations (TSAs) from several universities, held a “Commencement of Tamil Eelam Remembrance week” event in Scarborough to mark Maaveerar Naal.

Dances and songs were performed, speeches and poems were read out and flowers were laid in tribute to the thousands who have died in the Tamil struggle.
Throughout November, several of the Canadian Tamil Students' Associations also held campus-based events marking Maaveerar Naal.

We need your support

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
