Tamil Canadian students hold bike-a-thon in memory of Tamil genocide victims

Tamil Canadian students held a bike rally over the weekend to commemorate victims of the Tamil genocide. 

The Tamil students held the bike-a-thon at the Markham and Steeles junction on Sunday morning and wore shirts that read “Let's not forget the Tamil Genocide” in Tamil. Over 30 cyclists participated in the bike-a-thon. 

Cars also joined bearing slogans with the reminder to not forget the Tamil Genocide. The bike-a-thon was organized by volunteers and members of the Canadian Tamil Academy. 

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
