/EINPresswire.com/ Every year the international human rights day is celebrated on December 10th. On this 63rd anniversary of the International Human Rights Day, Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) expresses its determination to bring the political and military leadership of the government of Sri Lanka to face Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes charges for the killing of over 80,000 Tamils and the raping of Tamil women.
Human rights became an important issue after six million Jews were killed by Hitler during the Second World War. These Jews were killed simply because they were Jews. Like the Jews, Tamils were also killed solely on account of the fact that they are Tamils. It should be noted that Israel became a country for Jews as a result of the mass killing of Jews by Hitler. Similarly, Tamil Eelam will become a reality because of our heroes’ sacrifices and as a remedial measure for the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government, said TGTE.
This year is a special year for Tamils in our pursuit to bring the political and military leadership of Sri Lanka to face international justice. Early this year, the UN Secretary General Expert Panel issued a report on Sri Lanka, accusing the Sri Lankan Government of massacring Tamils and sexually assaulting Tamil women. That report also called for an International Investigation.
The UN Secretary General Expert Panel Report was followed by a landmark documentary by Channel 4 called “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields.” This documentary brought fresh evidence of mass killings and showed the pain and suffering of Tamils during the final stages of the war. During this time food was blocked by the Sri Lankan government resulting in thousands of people dying of starvation. In addition, many injured civilians bled to death as a result of the Sri Lankan Government preventing medical assistance to Tamils.
TGTE is confident that the coming year will see more positive developments in justice being done for our people. The United Nations Human Rights Council is meeting in March 2012 and TGTE is organizing a worldwide campaign to bring up the war crimes perpetrated by the Sri Lankan government in this Session. It is also sending a delegation to lobby at this session. Channel 4 is also in the process of producing another documentary on War Crimes in Sri Lanka.
On this International Human Rights Day, Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam also sends its gratitude to those who are working to bring Tamil suffering to international attention. It also takes this opportunity to remind the international community about systematize and pervasive Human Rights violations committed against Tamil people in the island of Sri Lanka for the last fifty years: the series of government assisted mass killings of Tamils started in 1958 and no one has ever been brought to justice for these killings.
