Tuesday November 20, 2018

French Tamils held a vigil on Friday outside the EU Parliament in Strasbourg, France, demanding international justice for genocide.


The vigil was organised by Strasbourg based Tamil youth affiliated to the AJT.


At the end of the vigil some of the organisers met senior EU officials and urged them to support an international judicial investigation into the crime of genocide perpetrated by the Sri Lankan state against the Tamils; they also urged them to prevail upon the Sri Lankan government to release Tamil political prisoners and occupied Tamil land.
