Tamil Solidarity held a Post Sri Lankan election discussion in Liverpool last Tuesday.
The chair, Bharathi, opened the meeting and gave a brief of the political situation in Sri Lanka and then went on to brief about the Tamil solidarity campaign and the regional work. Keerthikan, the national coordinator, gave an in-depth talk about Tamil solidarity and of the various achievements. He also provided an insight into what work is being carried out nationally and internationally and why meetings such these were important. He provided the audience with ideas to how we could work together.
The speaker, Tu Senan, provided a lengthy discussion about the 100-day programme by Maithiripala Sirisena and about the various political parties in Sri Lanka and why we have no trust in the TNA.
There was a lively discussion and various contributions from the audience such as Tony Mulhearn, as iconic figure who fought against the brutal Thatcher policies in the past and lead the Liverpool Council.
