Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Tamils Against Genocide - Model Indictment Charging U.S. Citizen and Sri Lanka Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and U.S. Permanent Resident and Commander of the Sri Lanka Army, Lt. General Sarath Fonseka charging them with 12 counts of genocide, and 106 counts of war crimes and torture, 17 February 2009T
"... I don�t think the people in the North and East are subjected to any injustice... In any democratic country the majority should rule the country. This country will be ruled by the Sinhalese community which is the majority representing 74 percent of the population..." Sri Lanka Army Commander Lt. General Sarath Fonseka On Democracy and Sinhala Hegemony  - 19 July 2008
26 years ago ... "A (Sri Lanka) government spokesman has denied that the destruction and killing of Tamils amounted to genocide. Under the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, acts of murder committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group as such are considered as acts of genocide. The evidence points clearly to the conclusion that the violence of the Sinhala rioters on the Tamils amounted to acts of genocide." International Commission of Jurists Review, December 1983


The Charge is Ethnic Cleansing

" Ethnic cleansing is about assimilating a people. It is about destroying the identity of a people, as a people. And it often occurs in stages. The preferred route of a conqueror is to achieve his objective without resort to violence - peacefully and stealthily. But when that fails, the would be conqueror turns to murderous violence and genocide to progress his assimilative agenda.In the island of Sri Lanka, the record shows that during the past sixty years and more, the intent and goal of all Sinhala governments (without exception) has been to secure the island as a Sinhala Buddhist Deepa." Nadesan Satyendra in Indictment Against Sri Lanka


Sri Lanka's Continued Ethnic Cleansing ...
 - after Tamil Armed Resistance Ended on 17 May 2009
 - the Record Speaks...

On 17 May 2009, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam silenced their guns.  The LTTE statement said - "... The LTTE had for almost three decades fought the Sri Lankan military and defended its right to carry arms as a means of protecting the Tamil people living in the island.  Since the war intensified in 2007, several thousand Tamil civilians have died. The recent thrust by the military into the Northern strong holds of the Tamils have seen an escalation in the deaths and has resulted in untold misery with people succumbing to starvation and lack of medical supplies....We need to do everything within our means to stop this carnage.."  

The Leader of the LTTE met his death on 17 May 2009. But after the armed resistance of the people of Tamil Eelam ended, Sri Lanka continued its ethnic cleansing with renewed vigor. Ethnic cleansing is about assimilating a people. It is about destroying the identity of a people, as a people. The Record Speaks....

"...The plight of the Tamils is not due to a natural disaster but the result of the conscious policy of a government that had no qualms of bombarding people that it claims as its own citizens with heavy artillery.."  Professor Dr.John P.Neelsen, 11 June 2009

27 August 2009 Execution video sparks Tamil outrage

A naked, blindfolded man crouches on the ground, as a uniformed soldier kicks him in the head then abruptly ends his life with a point- blank rifle shot. Other bodies lie nearby, their blood staining the earth around them.

The video, aired by Britain's Channel 4 news, comes with a warning to viewers of "extremely disturbing scenes." It shows alleged killings of unarmed Tamils by Sri Lankan soldiers during their military assault on Tiger-held areas last January.

And it has touched off a new political battle over the Sri Lankan government's actions as it drove the separatist militants � and thousands of Tamil civilians � into a narrow strip of coastal land where the fighters were defeated last May.

"I had to force myself to watch this video," says Harini Sivalingam, policy director of the Toronto-based Canadian Tamil Congress. "But it shows what we have known all along. This is the smoking gun."

 "300,000 people displaced by the fighting in Sri Lanka are held by the government in de facto detention camps. They cannot leave the camps, where conditions are "appalling" according to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon... Call on the Sri Lankan government to immediately allow the displaced civilians freedom of movement: those who wish to leave the camps should be free to do so. Urge them to place the camps under civilian, not military, management and to allow aid agencies, journalists and human rights observers full, unhindered access to the camps to carry out their functions and prevent possible abuses." Draft Petition also in PDF

TO: President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Presidential Secretariat, Colombo 1, Sri Lanka

Early in 2009, over 280,000 civilians fled the war zone in northeast Sri Lanka as the Sri Lankan military reconquered all the territory held by the opposition Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and killed their senior leaders, thus ending the 26-year-old conflict. Since the conclusion of hostilities in mid-May, the displaced civilians have been held in overcrowded, military-run internment camps. The Sri Lankan government will not allow the civilians to leave the camps until a screening process to detect suspected LTTE fighters among the civilians has been carried out. Aid agencies, journalists and human rights observers have not been given full access to the camps. Without independent monitors in the camps, the civilians are at risk of human rights abuses from the security forces.

We call on the Sri Lankan government to immediately allow the displaced civilians freedom of movement: those who wish to leave the camps should be free to do so. The camps should be placed under civilian, not military, management. Aid agencies, journalists and human rights observers should be promptly provided with full, unhindered access to the camps to carry out their functions and prevent possible abuses.

11 August 2009 Sri Lanka must free refugees says Amnesty

"In May 2009, the Sri Lankan government declared victory over the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. By the end of May 2009 an additional 300,000 displaced people had fled fighting and were detained in camps: these internally displaced persons camps remain overcrowded and unsanitary. Management of the camps is supervised by the military. Displaced people are not permitted to leave � they are in fact detained without charge or trial. Amnesty International is calling for the release of all displaced people wishing to leave the camps and for the immediate cessation of arbitrary detention of internally displaced people.

 The Amnesty report is a wide-ranging critique of the conditions in which some 300,000 Tamils are now living after surviving the horrors of the war's final weeks. But its main focus is on the linked issues of liberty and freedom of movement. Under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, freedom of movement would cover people's right to leave the camps and choose where to live. Liberty refers to their right to move freely in and out of the camps as long as they live there. Amnesty says that in denying them both these rights, the Sri Lankan government is in effect detaining them "without charge or trial" - which Amnesty says also breaks international law.  The report, entitled "Unlock the camps in Sri Lanka", includes testimony from some refugees now abroad, or their relatives. "

6 August 2009 Sri Lanka: The War Has Ended But the Suffering Continues - Doctors Without Borders/M�decins Sans Fronti�res (MSF)

"..For the past three months, Ati* has been living in a camp in Manik Farm with her husband and three children. Two weeks ago, her five-year-old son had a fever and was barely responding. She carried him to the clinic in the camp at 5 a.m. and waited to see a doctor until 6 p.m. Like many others that day, she did not get to see a doctor and returned to her tent with her sick child and no treatment. She went back the next day and again failed to see a doctor after waiting for another 13 hours. It wasn�t until the third day that she finally managed to see a doctor who gave her some antibiotics....

Maruthani,* a 24-year-old woman, arrived in Manik Farm at the end of May. She is badly disfigured from a bomb shell fragment that cut her lips, cheeks, and chin during the conflict. Her mouth is always open, and her tongue is badly affected; she can barely drink and cannot speak. She is in need of reconstructive surgery�something impossible to get inside the camp. When her wounds became infected, she went, in pain, to the clinic in the camp. There they were unable to do anything for her and she was not transferred to a hospital outside the camp because she was not considered to be an emergency case. She spends her days lying in the sand outside her tent, waiting for the day to pass...

In the camps, people are dealing with the trauma they experienced during the conflict, and it is difficult to rebuild any semblance of a normal life. There are very few job opportunities inside the camps. People are not allowed to leave the camps, and parents worry about their children�s education. People have difficulties searching for relatives, making plans, or taking control of their futures. With nowhere to go, there is little to do other than walk from one distribution to another. The uncertainty of how long they have to remain in the camps is difficult to live with....

MSF is not allowed to enter camps where we do not work and we have not been able to carry out an independent assessment of the needs of the displaced people in the camps.

MSF has the capacity to scale up activities and provide medical and mental health care for the people inside the camps. So far, the authorities have not accepted this proposal for assistance."

28 July 2009 Free Civilians From Detention Camps - Human Rights Watch

Eventual Resettlement No Excuse for Holding 280,000 Displaced Tamils - Keeping several hundred thousand civilians who had been caught in the middle of a war penned in these camps is outrageous. Haven�t they been through enough? They deserve their freedom, like all other Sri Lankans. Brad Adams, Asia director .(New York)

The Sri Lankan government should immediately release the more than 280,000 internally displaced Tamil civilians held in detention camps in northern Sri Lanka, Human Rights Watch said today.

The government, in violation of international law, has since March 2008 confined virtually all civilians displaced by the fighting between government forces and the separatist Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in detention camps, euphemistically called �welfare centers� by the government. Only a small number of camp residents, mainly the elderly, have been released to host families and institutions for the elderly.

With no one to care for the pain
To live on, not knowing why

But no one is allowed out, and hardly anyone is allowed in...Neil Buhne, head of the U.N. mission in Sri Lanka, said aid agencies would review the situation in the camps in mid-August, but declined to say whether they would pull out if the gates remained shut.For now, those trapped inside worry about their future, Buhne said. "Every time I go to the camps more people ask me, 'When are we going to be let out?'" more

17 July 2009 The Tamil Tragedy Continues - Roy Ratnavel, National Post, Canada

"Thousands of dead are children, and most of them died before they even knew that they were Tamils. Scores of people died in bunkers, or were burned alive and bombed in open spaces. People were also shot at close range by the Sri Lankan army. Sri Lanka had no qualms about using heavy weapons to bombard the very people it claimed to be rescuing. According to some reports, the army even used illegal chemical weapons."

Defeated, friendless Tamils face annihilation - Dr John Whitehall

"The victory was won with overwhelming firepower that fell indiscriminately on the Tamil Tigers and civilians and included such banned weapons as cluster bombs. Some 20,000 civilians are believed to have died, with Colombo's military victory assured by the support of China.

The real victory, however, was inevitable, thanks to Western governments which, during the "war on terror", proscribed the Tigers as terrorists and categorised them with the likes of al Qaeda. This gave Colombo an apparently higher moral ground to do what it wanted. It also invited the Western audience to imagine the Tigers to be like Islamic terrorists - presumably unrepresentative of peoples under their control and committed to the destruction of Western democracy and culture. The war in Sri Lanka turned on the word "terrorist".

But were they terrorists? Certainly, they employed terror, but so had the Colombo state. However, the Tamil Tigers were not like the Vietcong or al Qaeda which emerged from hiding simply to destroy. During the 2002-06 ceasefire they were a de facto government administering land traditionally belonging to the Tamils. They ran their affairs through ministries of health, education, welfare, agriculture and sports, as well as police and security. They were certainly an autocratic if not a military dictatorship, but they perceived the Tamils as facing genocide at the hands of the majority Sinhalese."

A nation bound together by the effete ties of language, race and religion has arrived at the cross-roads between parliamentary dictatorship and fascism.

Many have endured months of terrible conditions in the conflict zone before their present internment�We deplore that in the camps some have already died from starvation or malnutrition."

These priests unselfishly helped Tamil people during the war, until the last hours of the military campaign. These priests have only helped people. The Government of Sri Lanka has put them in isolation in the IDP camps where no-one is allowed contact with them. There are fears for their safety, their emotional and psychological conditions, and also for their physical health."

After the positive statement by the External Affairs Minister Hon. Mr. S.M.Krishna on Wednesday evening (24 June 2009) regarding the Mercy Mission ship the MV Captain Ali, Mercy Mission personnel, supporters, volunteers and the Tamil Diaspora as a whole were relieved that there was movement on the part of the Government of Sri Lanka and that the desperately needed humanitarian relief aboard the ship would be delivered to the 300,000 Tamil civilians in the internment camps in Sri Lanka. As of Friday evening (26 June 2009) Mercy Mission has yet to be formally notified of the 24 June decision and statement by the Indian and Sri Lankan governments. There has also not been ANY movement at the ground level and the MV Captain Ali remains anchored five (5) miles off the Port of Chennai. The situation on the ship is now critical. The crew and passengers have been onboard for 51 days without respite and in very harsh, stressful conditions. The passengers, Uthayanan Thavarajasingam and Kristjan Gudmundsson have formally requested that the authorities allow them to disembark and to take the next flight to London and Iceland.

Every day 20 to 30 young people are taken away and their whereabouts are unknown, a human rights organisation, INFORM, reported this week. Interviewed by the BBC Sinhala Service, a spokesperson for the organisation said people wearing hoods were brought into the camps and they indicated by signs whether a detainee had LTTE connections or not..."

16 June 2009 Tamils in Hitlerite Concentration Camps - Keith Locke MP, New Zealand Green Party

"One of the matters that I think our Government should give immediate and ongoing attention to is the horrific situation facing the Tamil people of Sri Lanka. Their aspiration for an autonomous Tamil region within the Sri Lankan State has been crushed by massive force. This year anything up to 20,000 Tamils have been killed by huge air and artillery bombardment of the territory that for some years has been under the administration of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, known as the LTTE. Most of the population of that territory-around 300,000 people-has been herded into what can best be termed concentration camps. I think that term is apt because what is happening to the Tamil people in those camps is similar to what happened in Hitler's concentration camps, but without the mass extermination programme.

The Sri Lankan Government aims to use these camps to destroy all traces of the former Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam administration, in the same way that Hitler used concentration camps to eliminate the German communists and socialists as political forces. All those associated with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam will either be imprisoned long term, "re-educated", or perhaps they will disappear. There have already been reports from the camps of "white van disappearances" of young Tamil Tiger activists. Hitler believed that anything was justified in the war against communism, and the Sri Lankan Government proceeds as if anything is justified in the so-called war against terrorism. It need not have been this way. "

"He is dead, my brother; this is what my head says, but there is still hope in me that he is lying in a hospital somewhere, fighting for his life, making it through for me and my mother. There are so many trapped in the camps and they are unable to get messages to the outside world. People are scouring websites and the news for a glimpse of their parents or their brothers. It's the uncertainty that kills you slowly. You see their faces in your sleep, you wake up at night and cry, wondering where they are, if they are suffering, if they are starving to death, if they are in prison being tortured or cast out to sea in a boat."

They are telling me to go back, and I'm not the only one.

" Angel of death flew over the skies of Vanni and took the lives of more than twenty five thousand innocent Tamil men, women and children in a single day. Thousands of wounded are still crying out for help. They are bleeding to death on the streets. They have touched neither water nor food for days. Nobody has come to rescue them. Those who fight for the rights of the animals and those who preach about Buddha and Mahatma have no compassion for the dying Tamils. Chinese weapons, Indian intelligence, Sinhala Armed personals and racist Sri Lankan leaders came together to perform one of the most cruel war that has cost the lives of many thousands innocents. While thousands of innocent children and women are facing painful and slow death, Sinhala Buddhist extremists are celebrating victory with flags and fire crackers in the south of the country."
