Tamil March and Rally Protest the Sri Lanka Genocide. London. 11th April 2009.

As the Sri Lankan government continue to wage war on the Tamil Tigers and continue to cause serious loss of life within the Tamil population almost a quarter of a million Tamils march in London to protest.

The demonstration takes place as two Tamils enter the second week of their hunger strike outside the British Parliament building with many supporters now warning that the two men are dangerously close to renal failure.

The two men are receiving care and medical support from London paramedics and Tamil doctors.

Earlier in the day, the GLA (Greater London Authority) fence off the square leading to accusations that the GLA are more concerned with the welfare of the grass in the square than the people engaged in the protest themselves.

Elsewhere in London, supporters gather to march to Hyde Park in opposition to the brutal proscription war being waged against the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

The War on Terror as it has been enabled around the world. The operation waged by the Sri Lankan government military forces is pioneered by the US and UK and is now, 8 years after its invocation, responsible for widespread loss of life.

Depressingly, the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) is once again criticised for its editorial decision making process. The broadcaster is now becoming seriously tainted with allegations that it is unable to properly report on subjects with independence or impartiality. Many now believe that it is becoming a serious and persistant problem.
