Thousands of Tamils gather in London months after the Sri Lankan final assault against the Tamil Tigers ends in the deaths of tens of thousands of Tamils in Sri Lanka. At present, the appalling brutality of the Sri Lankan ultra-nationalist government plays out another histrionic episode, the forced incarceration of hundreds of thousands of Tamils in concentration camps on the island.
Despite international pressure, the Sri Lankan government continue their policy of eradicating the representatives of the Tamil nation by filtering out LTTE sympathisers from within the camps, many of whom are now missing and unaccounted for.
The protest demands that the Sri Lankan Government release those incarcerated immediately.
Later in the afternoon, calls are made for the Sri Lankan Government to be investigated for war crimes, the expulsion of Sri Lanka from the Commonwealth and the consideration of sanctions against individual members of the Sri Lankan Government and its cartels, preventing them from freely travelling, working or studying within the EU.
