UNHRC failure brings in large-scale Sinhala militarisation in North

[TamilNet, Sunday, 27 April 2014, 23:11 GMT]
Hitherto unseen Sinhala militarisation is taking place in the Jaffna peninsula in recent days, especially after the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) passed a watered-down resolution leaving out the de-militarisation demand that had been proposed in the initial draft. The SL military has deployed heavy machinery in clearing 16 acres of lands 400 meters away from Kaithadi junction on Kaithadi – Maanippaay Road appropriating private lands of Tamils surrounding a former camp, transforming the place into a military cantonment. Similarly, Tamil Heroes Cemeteries that were desecrated and bulldozed have been transformed into key command and supply bases of the occupying Sinhala military in the country of Eezham Tamils. The SL military is also constructing new camps at Vallai and Valveddiththu’rai.

[TamilNet, Friday, 25 April 2014, 09:30 GMT]
Stonehearted persons and officials in the island are a hurdle to the possibility of bringing reconciliation between the Tamil and Sinhala people, Bishop of Mannaar Rt Rev Rayappu Joesph told TamilNet this week citing how the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry scuttled a joint visit by him and the Bishop of Anuradhapura Rt. Rev. Dr. Norbert Andradi to Anuradhpura prison when the religious leaders were scheduled to visit the 60 Tamil political prisoners to deliver a message of hope and some basic assistance on the Easter Sunday.

A group of Sinhalese led by a Buddhist monk have been blocking Eezham Tamils of Kangkuveali village in Moothoor division of the Trincomalee district to access their ancient temple of Akaththiyar Thaapanam. The temple, which is mentioned in a local mythological literature called Karaisaip-puraa’nam, was destroyed by an external group of Sinhalese on Tamil Heroes Day in November 2009. Since then, more than 120 Tamil families have been robbed of their livelihood as the Sinhala intruders backed by the genocidal SL military have appropriated 293 acres of lands surrounding the temple at Oddu and Padu-kaadu areas. The attack on the temple and the sustained threat against its reconstruction aim at the annihilation of their existence as Tamils of Kanguveali, complain the villagers, who have owned the lands for centuries and possess land deeds from 1970 and 1985 to document their legal ownership.

[TamilNet, Sunday, 20 April 2014, 13:13 GMT]
Inviting more than 2,100 unemployed Tamil youth through village (GS) officials, the SL military establishment in Palaali staged an interview session on Thursday without revealing the real nature of the recruitment process in advance.

Eezham Tamils in Canada evolve common position on Tamil activism

[TamilNet, Friday, 18 April 2014, 21:31 GMT]
In a move interpreted as a sharp response to Sri Lanka's war on Tamil diaspora, more than 80 Tamil community organizations from across Canada have come together in an initiative to create a consensus outlining their collective position and guiding principles on Tamil struggle-centric engagement. The Tamil Assembly rejected the proscription of 16 Tamil diaspora organizations along with 424 individuals by the Government of Sri Lanka and said: The ongoing genocide of the Tamil nation is aided and abetted by institutions, governments, and bodies outside the purview of the Sri Lankan state structure, making them complicit in the ongoing genocide. These external actors have a responsibility to halt the ongoing genocide of the Tamil nation and guarantee the collective rights of the Tamils, the document said.

Colombo stages smokescreen operations to divert global focus on crimes: TNA councillor

[TamilNet, Friday, 11 April 2014, 18:26 GMT]
The so-called revival or regrouping of the LTTE and the arrests made during the sessions in Geneva, targeting of rights activists, and now claiming the episode over by killing three alleged ex LTTE members under suspicious circumstances, looks like a political smokescreen operation carefully managed by the Sri Lankan military intelligence, blames TNA councillor and former parliamentarian M.K. Shivajilingam. The reaction comes after the Sri Lankan military claimed that it had slain three LTTE members who were re-organising the movement. The killings seem to have taken place in Nedungkea’ni in Mulaiththeevu district. But, the dead bodies were taken to Sinhala colony Padaviya division in Anuradhapura district. No independent journalists have been allowed to witness the episode or those slain at the claimed site where the cordon and search operation had taken place, he said.

Colombo’s Gazette confirms colonial rule over Tamils

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 09 April 2014, 22:54 GMT]
Apart from its atrocious content, the Tamil version of genocidal Sri Lanka’s extraordinary Gazette declaration, dated 21 March and signed by Gotabhaya Rajapaksa itself is an evidence for the State’s non-rightful rule over Eezham Tamils and their territory in the island. If a State doesn’t know how to properly spell the names of places it claims as ‘integral’ parts of its country, that only shows an alien rule and questions the very right of the State to rule over that territory, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island, citing the way many of the Tamil villages and places in the island are notified in the Gazette that individually lists out around 400 Tamils in the diaspora as ‘threats’ to its genocidal and colonial rule.

India’s ‘cricket’ with Sri Lanka contrasts its response to apartheid

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 08 April 2014, 12:13 GMT]
If international sports is part of statecraft or tradecraft of the Establishments, India playing cricket with genocidal Sri Lanka, after partnering the genocide, having ‘military to military’ relationship and backing the genocidal State in every international forum, is in sharp contrast to how Non-Aligned India of 1960s and 70s responded to Apartheid South Africa by refusing to play cricket with it, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics in the island. India losing the game is not merely ‘sports’. The very participation of India itself marks the moral lose of a country of one billion peoples and their media that have the legacy of fighting British imperialism, but now unable to check their own Establishment, the activists said.

India continues to backstab Eelam Tamils: NPC Councillor Sivajilingam

[TamilNet, Monday, 07 April 2014, 22:45 GMT]
New Delhi continues to backstab Eezham Tamils, ignoring the reality that it is the nation of Eezham Tamils that would be the only friendly force India could count on if Indian interests were to be geopolitically compromised in the future, said M.K. Sivajilingam Councillor of the Northern Provincial Council and Tamil National Alliance (TNA) in Jaffna after returning from taking part in the meetings and press events held in Geneva. There is no use in the powerless 13th Amendment. The international community should create a UN-backed interim management to secure the nation of Eezham Tamils from the protracted genocide in the island he said. Any permanent solution should recognise the sovereignty of Eezham Tamils and their absolute right to self-determination, he said.

Genocidal Sri Lanka declares war on Tamil Diaspora

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 April 2014, 16:09 GMT]
Issuing an extra-ordinary gazette notification and citing a UN Security Council Resolution (1373), the genocical State of Sri Lanka on Friday officially proscribed 16 Tamil groups and 424 Eezham Tamil individuals, most of them foreign citizens settled in the Western countries. The 16 organisations range from the LTTE to democratically elected diaspora bodies. Sri Lanka's Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris has justified the ‘proscriptions’ by signing the United Nations Security Council Resolution of 2001, especially after the UNHRC resolution on Sri Lanka was passed in Geneva last week. Indian writers allegedly working for the Indian Intelligence have also been attacking the diaspora in the recent days raising suspicions whether the current move of Colombo is in partnership with New Delhi, Tamil political observers in the diaspora said.

Jaffna District Chamber of Commerce and Tamil National Cultural Association on Thursday staged a half-day protest against invading illegal salesmen from South, who outcompete the native traders with the backing of the occupying Sinhala military. The protest drew the support of civil activists, Tamil politicians and the public as the provincial council and the civic bodies run by the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and the Municipal Council administration run by the EPDP have been powerless in controlling the illegal activity which has also worsened the anti-social crimes in the peninsula. The street vendors from South market their goods at the doorsteps of the shops owned by Tamil traders in the city at cheaper rates, but without any warranties, the organisers told TamilNet.
