Join the protest against Sri Lankan Independence Day – 4th Feb at 12 noon

Tamil solidarity will be protesting outside the Sri Lankan High Commission on the 4th of February from 12 – 3pm.

Join us to protest against the Sri Lankan government’s hypocrisy in celebrating its 71st year independence whilst denying the rights of the oppressed and poor.

We demand:

  • Release all political prisoners
  • We demand an independent war crimes investigation.
  • Where are the missing people? We need to know, what happened to each and every one of them.
  • Give back all the land occupied by the military and government authorities.
  • We demand Rs.1000 rupees basic daily wage for plantation workers.
  • Support and stand in solidarity with the people of Mullaitivu, Vavuniya and Mannar district who have started a fast protest demanding the military to release the occupied lands
  • Hold the Sri Lankan government responsible on its failed promises
  • Defend the right to self-determination of the Tamil-speaking people.
