Tamils rally in Sydney on Tamil Genocide Remembrance Day

 

A rally, organised by the Tamil Refugee Council, took place in Sydney Australia to mark 15 years since the Tamil genocide. 

The rally ended outside Sydney Town Hall where a series of speakers spoke about the 2009 genocide in Mullivaikkal. 

Amongst the speakers was Nila, a Mullivaikkal survivor. Nila, who was only 9 years old, recounted the tragic events in 2009. 

Senator David Shoebridge also spoke at the rally and called for justice for the massacres at Mullivaikkal.

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
