Eelam Tamils remember genocide of 2009

NPC member Ravikaran scatters flowers at Nandikadal lagoon at sunrise

Nine years ago, the Eelam Tamil nation faced the largest massacre of its people by Sri Lankan state forces across the decades of genocide. May 18 has come to be marked as 'Tamil Genocide Day' by Eelam Tamils across the North-East and around the world.

Today, we at the Tamil Guardian stand with the Tamil people in remembering the tens of thousands massacred during the final stages of the armed conflict and reiterate the Tamil people's demand for justice. 

Nine years on families weep inconsolably as the grief of their loss remains irreconciled and unresolved.
