Commemoration events for remembering the Maveerars who had embraced Heroes’ deaths fighting for the rights of Tamil people and for the ideal of Tamil Eelam will commence sentimentally in the Motherland and the countries where the Tamil people have migrated today.
It is after around 8 years that the Maveerar Week is to be held by the people in the Motherland including North and East, with re-vigoured enthusiasm.
A situation was created in North and East, where the people of North and East were unable to remember, commemorate and Celebrate their fallen heroes, and the week dedicated for them.
The Maveerars were publicly remembered last year after an absence of 7 years, in the North and East. The Maveerar Week will commence today in all five districts of the North, Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Mullaitheevu, Mannar and Vavuniya and in three Districts of the East Trincomalee, Baticaloa and Amparai. The Thuyillumillams in North and East are being renovated by Tamil People on their own spontaneous instincts for their children. At the same time, arrangements had been made to celebrate the Maveerar week at public places.
The Maveerar Day was being celebrated by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, led by Velupillai Prabaharan as from the year 1989. This week commencing today will end with the main event on the 27th of this month.
