Demand Sri Lanka with deadline to Stop the GENOCIDE OF TAMILS. sign now

How the international community is blindfolded by the Sri Lankan government, while it carries out a premeditated and systematic genocide and ethnic cleansing of the innocent Tamil civilians in the North and the East of Sri Lanka, is the LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL MEDIA SUPPRESSION prior to the start of the killings. All the international humanitarian agencies, including International Red Cross, and media personalities were ordered to leave from the North and North East of the country, predominantly Tamil areas, prior to start killing scores of innocent Tamil civilians by using heavy multi barrel artilleries, banned aerial chemical and cluster bombs on civilian houses, hospitals, schools, churches and refugee camps inside the government declared safe zone. Anyone leaks the information were handled with lethal treatment or threatened with 20 years to life imprisonment. These kinds of acts in other parts of the world were always exposed when it took place and they were stopped timely by the international intervention. In Sri Lanka, it is the opposite to the rest of the Democratic world. Ever since British handed over the power to the majority dominated government, in imposed prolonged, total discrimination on the Tamils and it has escalated to a point where GENOCIDE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING of the Tamils not only get unnoticed to the international community but its involvements got interrupted by the major sponsor of this murderous regime, the neighboring India which loves to show off its domination in the Indian ocean.
The international community needs to apply pressure on Sri Lankan government to let the international media in and stop these killings. It also should seek punishment against the Sri Lankan president and his co-rulers, in the court of law for their war crimes, before another ruthless criminal ruler do the same in the other part of the world. In reality it is not a war but a government sponsored mass murder spree of Tamil civilians, mass rape of innocent Tamil women and children-a systematic ethnic cleansing of Tamils by the majority ruled government. If the government wanted to live with the Tamils peacefully and in harmony it wouldn't be killing the civilians daily, continuously and tell the world it has been wiping out terrorists: My unborn baby brothers and sisters were not terrorists, my elderly grandparents were not terrorists, my sisters and cousins carrying babies in their arms were not terrorists, my priests were not terrorists, my health care professionals were not terrorists, my journalists who out cried for my rights were not terrorists, living in their home peacefully with their basic rights is not terrorism. Where are they Mr.President Rajapakse; isn't it ethnic cleansing and genocide? Wake up, let the fair media into the country, and learn what love and peace is to live with Tamils. You and your co-rulers will realize what you've lost-LOVE OF THE REAL HUMAN BEINGS. ASKING FOR MY BASIC RIGHTS FROM MY FATHER IS NOT A CRIME, IS NOT TERRORISM BUT MY GOD'S GIFT. IF I DO NOT LIVE WITH THE FREEDOM WHICH GOD GAVE ME, AND IF I DO NOT ASK FOR IT I COMMIT A SIN AGAINST THE GOD'S CREATION OF ME. We, as a Tamil community seek the international pressure unconditionally to stop the GENOCIDE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING of Tamils in Sri Lanka, and the right to have fair media infiltrate into the North, North East and the East of Sri Lanka to expose the true nature of the WAR(World Against Rajapakse).

Starvation: Colombo deploys the worst genocidal weapon
Saturday, 25 April 2009, 18:29 GMT]

No food shipment was sent to the safety zone after 02 April. Even the earlier supplies were pathetically inadequate. The World Food Programme (WFP) shipment that already set sailing with 1,500 MT food items and was scheduled to arrive in Mulli-vaaykkaal has been diverted to Jaffna in the last minute by the Colombo government, citing security reasons, civil officials inside the zone told TamilNet Saturday. People starve beyond imagination, subsisting just on fish and prawns caught amidst high risk of SLA attack and eating them semi-raw, roasted in fire, as there is no cooking oil.
