On the day US President Barack Obama signals for the enlisting of the power of fundamental values, Tamils continue to demand the British Government take action to help the Tamil people of Sri Lanka as they fall into unsupported statelessness.
The Tamils have been demonstrating for almost two months and have demanded the British Government act to prevent the massacres taking place on the island.
Despite this, the British Government have failed to act in any meaningful way. As a result there has been widespread loss of life, undermining the British Government, and the International Communities humanitarian legitimacy.
The protest is joined by Mr Tim Martin, a former British aid worker who lived in the North of Sri Lanka and who is now on day 4 of his hunger strike.
