A group of 11 Tamils cause nuisance in Geneva
An anti-Tamil liberation protest was held in Geneva on Saturday. The event organised by the JVP (Marxist Sinhala extremists) was only attended to by 11 people, sources in Geneva said.
The 11 members consisting of men and women were mainly from the Sri Lanka Intelligence funded Tamil Democracy Forum, sources added.
Not so long ago was the Tamil National Heroes’ Day of 2005 celebrated across Switzerland by thousands of Tamils.
In 2004 Tamils staged a pro-Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) ‘Pongu Thamil’ rally which was attended to by well over 30,000 people in Geneva.
One hopes that the Tamil Democracy Forum actually knows the definition of the term democracy and accepts the inevitable fact that the LTTE are indeed the chosen representatives of an overwhelming majority of the Tamil population.
Commenting on the day’s events an officer who wished not to be named said ‘While respecting people’s right to protest, I have to say that this protest is nothing more than a nuisance. I speak to 1000s of Swiss Tamils and they are all overwhelmingly in support for the LTTE. The Tamil National Heroes’ day was a big event in Switzerland. It made headlines in many of the local media here.’
