Tamil Speaking Asylum Seekers in Nauru who intend to go on death fast

Dear Hon. Minister,
It is more than 6 months since we were picked up in mid seas safely and taken ashore by navy and customs personnel and federal police to an immigration detention centre at Chrismas Island. We are still left at limbo without anyone taking a decision about our future. As you are aware we fled our land of birth due to fear of ethnic persection and daily life becoming very dangerous.

We are disappointed that no decision has been taken about our plea for political asylum. We who escaped death in our own homeland and in the high seas are now reduced to walking zombies. Eating 3 meals a day does not mean living? It is for this reason we have decided to avoid the 3 meals and face whatever is in store in respect of our future.

All our appeals all these days have not brought any satisfactory response. We are pained to observe the silence of the international community when everyone is in the know of the horrendous human rights violations taking place in Sri Lanka. Daily 10 people are shot to death in the North of Sri Lanka. We are frustrated that despite the lapse of 6 months and despite the existence of many countries that offer asylum to political refugees no final decision has been taken about 83 of us. Hence, we have decided to go on death fast from September 01, 2007.

This fast is not meant to hurt anyone else. It is purely meant to draw the attension of the world at large about our sorry plight. We have been affected psychologically and traumatised. We appeal to you to understand our sad and pathetic situation and to make a decision. Till we get a favourable reply we have decided to go on fast to death.

Yours truly,

Sri Lankan Asylum Seekers who
are on fast to death
