Help Stop the Genocide of the Tamil People in Sri Lanka
61 year record of brutal oppression and genocidal acts against the (minority) Tamils
* for 60+ years!! Tamils are being killed, massacred, slaughtered & tortured. * for 60+ years!! Tamil homes, businesses, schools, libraries, temples, churches, universities, cultural buildings destroyed by Sinhalese civilians, army and police. - Tamils are living in fear in Sri Lanka. They have a miserable life.
For more than 60 years, successive Sri Lankan governments backed by racist Sinhala extremists have been oppressing the Tamil minorities. They brutally killed thousands of innocent Tamils, burnt their properties and sent the rest in ships as refugees to the North of the country in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties.
When Tamils asked for their rights, Sinhala extremists always responded with violence
