Tamils defy military threats to mark Maaveerar Naal in Vavuniya

 

Despite the Sri Lankan army having destroyed preparations the night before, Tamils across Vavuniya gathered at the Eechchankulam Thuyilum Illam on Wednesday to mark Maaveerar Naal.

Preparations were completely rebuilt within a few hours at the destroyed LTTE cemetery, as Tamils from across the gathered to remember fallen fighters.

See video from the event and photographs from another remembrance event at the Vavuniya Urban Council below.
