Chennai, Mar 18 (): Save Tamils Movement (STM), the Chennai-based forum of young IT professionals has now joined the anti-Sri Lanka protest staged by the student community of Tamil Nadu.
To show solidarity with the warring students of Tamil Nadu, STM prepares to join the anti-Sri Lanka struggle as a part of their objective to addressing the needs of Eelam Tamils.
One of the STM members, Syed Abdulkadhar says that they are planning to launch a train campaign today by distributing pamphlets along Park –Thiruvanmiyur suburban railway route in the city between 6-8 pm today and 7-10 am tomorrow to create awareness of their proposed anti-Sri Lanka agitation this Wednesday amongst their colleagues and IT circles.
Demanding for an independent international investigation and urging for economic sanctions against Sri Lanka, STM members and volunteers are gearing up to launch anti-Sri Lanka protest this Wednesday,20th March at 4 pm in front of Tidel Park in the city.
Previously, to bring to light the horrendous war crimes committed by Sri Lanka during the final stages of ethnic conflict with the tiger rebels, Save Tamils Movement had screened a war crimes documentary titled, ‘Sri Lanka: Buried Justice’ on 13th March, 2013 at the Constitution Club of India, New Delhi in which documentary film-maker Mohuya Chaudhuri, Prof Anuradha Chenoy and senior journalist Rajesh Sundaram shared their perspective and opinion on the issue.
Save Tamils Movement members Parimala, Pravin Raj and Sa Elangovan along with lawyer Amarnath were in New Delhi for the film screening. The STM representatives at Delhi opined that ‘India does not understand Tamil sentiments.’
Save Tamils Movement is of the firm opinion that only an independent international inquiry into the ethnic killings and atrocious war crimes of Sri Lanka could be the minimal justice possibly rendered for the Eelam Tamils and that could only pave way for stopping of systematic ethnic cleansing of Tamils, that is continuing even today in the island nation.
