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

Canada - 27 November 2008





[see also Maveerar Naal 2008  Address by Velupillai Pirabakaran,Leader of Tamil Eelam "..The Sinhala nation refuses  to acknowledge the historic homeland of the Tamils. In such a situation, how will it offer a just solution to our people? As the freedom movement of the people of Tamil Eelam we will never, ever allow Sinhala occupation or Sinhala domination of our homeland. Whatever challenges confront us, whatever contingencies we encounter, whatever forces stand on our path, we will still continue with our struggle for the freedom of the Tamil people. On the path shown by history, at the command of the circumstances of today, (வரலாறு விட்ட வழியில், காலம் இட்ட  கட்டளைப்படி) we will continue with our struggle till alien Sinhala occupation of our land is removed. At this historic juncture, I would request Tamils, in whatever part of the globe that they may live, to raise their voices, firmly and with determination, in support of the freedom struggle of their brothers and sisters in Tamil Eelam. I urge them from my heart to strengthen the hands of our freedom movement and I ask (உரிமையோடு கேட்டுக்கொள்கிறேன்) that they continue to extend their contribution and help..." more]

The mass of people who attended the Maveerar Remembrance Day event in Canada on 27 November 2008 is once again a clear signal to all Tamil detractors that their shenanigans won�t work... As one hears of the mass of people attending similar events taking place all over the Tamil Diaspora, one is heartened but not surprised. Such a profound out pouring of emotion and passion by Tamils unprecedented in terms of any freedom struggles in recent times is reflective of the Tamil people�s genuine yearning to see their homeland Tamil Eelam free; a yearning that�s just and reasonable and should be felt, understood and supported by the rest of the world..." more ]
