Time has come for joint action by protesting masses: NPC Councillor

[TamilNet, Saturday, 08 April 2017, 21:13 GMT]
The uprooted Tamils from Mu値段k-ku値am in Musali division and the Tamil-speaking Muslims in Ma池ichchuk-kaddi were encouraged to see the support and solidarity they received from NPC Councillor Ananthy Sasitharan and the activists of the Voice for North-East Enforced Disappeared (VNEED), an organisation launched recently by the NPC councillor on behalf of the families of persons subjected to enforced disappearances. The destruction caused by military land-grab in Champoor in Trincomalee, at Keapppaa-pulavu in Mullaiththeevu, at Valikaamam North in Jaffna and at Mu値値ik-ku値am in Mannaar are similar. The intention of the SL State has been the same. These protests are integral part of the struggle for the territorial integrity of the homeland of Tamil-speaking people in the North-East, she said.

The NPC Councillor accompanied by ITAK youth wing leader V.S. Sivakaran, also proposed the people in Musali to send their delegates for a joint meeting with NPC Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran.



Unlike the politicians who come accompanied with journalists and seek publicity through staging interviews, Ms Sasitharan took an initiative bringing 20 people with her, cooked and served food to the uprooted people and spent 5 hours with the protesters listening to their problems. She also visited Mu値段k-ku値am Church, the protesting families said.

The Tamil-speaking Muslims at Ma池ichchuk-kaddi, staging their protest against the Gazette notification by the SL State were also encouraged to see the solidarity coming from the NPC Councillor and the families of the enforced disappeared to their struggle, which is taking place just 200 meters away from the protest of Mu値値ik-ku値am people.

ITAK Youth Wing leader Sivakaran said SL State was deceiving the people without respecting even the commitments made by it at Geneva in return of getting extended time and space at Geneva Human Rights Council.
