In a signed a declaration of solidarity to mark the tenth year of Mullivaikkal and Tamil genocide remembrance, over 60 Tamil Diaspora Organisations have resolved to work towards justice for genocide, demilitarisation and Tamil self-determination.
The statement shows people back home that there are so many Tamil diaspora organisations are in solidarity with them and not to give up hope.
The declaration reads as follows:
On 18 May 2019, ten years since the Sri Lankan state’s genocide against the Tamil nation reached its peak, we stand in solidarity with our brethren in their quest for justice.
We believe that an international independent investigation is the only credible path to achieve criminal accountability and justice for mass atrocity crimes committed against the Tamil people, including for over 146,679 Tamil people unaccounted for during the final stages of the war in the Vanni region.
Sri Lanka’s continuing state oppression and persecution of the Tamil people and its persisting military occupation of the Tamil homeland only further justifies the Tamil nation’s struggle for self-determination.
We declare today that we will stand in solidarity with the Tamil victims and survivors, and pledge to continue to strive for peace, justice and freedom for the Tamil nation.
