Genocide of Tamils highlighted in Germany

Tamil youth in Germany came together to hold a cultural event on Saturday, depicting the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka.

Held in Rheinland Pfalz, over 500 local German residents, including politicians, attended. Many expressed horror at the plight of Tamil, and said they were astounded to know crimes of such severity continued to occur in this century.

The politicians pledged to fight for justice for the Tamils.

The Tamil youth who organised the event said the event's main theme was the determination and resolve of young Tamils, born and raised in countries across the world, to fight for the justice and rights of their brothers and sisters back home. 

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
