Mullivaikal remembrance held in Australia

Eelam Tamils gathered in Sydney on Friday to commemorate the

Senator Lee Rhiannon

Mullivaikal massacre.

An event at the Bahai centre saw various speakers, including Meena Krishnamoorthy, a survivor of the massacre, and Senator Lee Rhiannon from the Green Party of Australia.

Seran Sribalan, Tamil youth activist from Australia told TamilNet:

“Throughout the history of Tamil Eelam struggle, we have seen different types of problems and atrocities. But the Tamil resistance was able to overcome it. Similarly with Mu’l’livaaykkaal. While the occasion tells the world about the genocide of our people, it also reminds us that we will continue to fight till Tamil Eelam is won.”

The Tamil Youth Organisation Australia held an awareness raising event in central Sydney named ‘G for Genocide’.

Members of the TYO handed out leaflets to the public and explained to many the details of the genocide being committed by Sri Lanka.

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
