Thousands of British Tamils gathered in London, Oxford and Glasgow to mark Maaveerar Naal. 

London

Over 10,000 British Tamils gathered in London yesterday to pay tribute to fallen cadres. This year marks the 30th year since the tradition was started, which was established by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) on 27 November 1989.

The event was also attended by Paul Scully, parliamentary candidate for Sutton, Cheam and Worcester Park, Wes Streeting, parliamentary candidate for Ilford North, and Stephen Timms, parliamentary candidate for East Ham. 

Oxford

Thousands of Tamils also came together at the World Tamils Historical Society community centre, Oxford, to commemorate Maaveerar Naal. They were joined by Bob Blackman, parliamentary candidate for Harrow East.
