Italian Tamil youth celebrate diversity

Italian Tamil youth joined other young Italians in celebration of the diversity and multi-culturalism that surrounds them, at Castelnovo Sotto on 6th May 2012.

They were joined by communities from India, Ghana, Albania, Russia, Madagascar and the Arab Maghreb Union.

Sharing traditional culinary favourites, members of a Tamil youth organisation - Giovanni Tamil, also shared their memories and thoughts of the struggle faced by their nation in the North-East of the island of Sri Lanka.

Saddened and shocked by the events of Mullivaikal, the guests joined members of Giovanni Tamil in wearing black ribbons, in remembrance of May 18th 2009. 

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
