Open letter to Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs: Hon. Lawrence Cannon Monday, Jun 1 2009 

Dear Hon. Lawrence Cannon,
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Canada.

You are one strong man, I had to admit. Canadian Tamils have been protesting since January across Canada to save minority Tamils from genocide in the hands of majority Sinhala led Sri Lanka.  We have protested in Vancouver, Ottawa,  Mississauga, Brampton, Markham, and many corners of Greater Toronto.  We have protested from the confinement of parks, and sidewalks, to open streets, and highway.

You are not even willing to listen to the genuine grievances of Canadian Tamils.  You have not even said a comforting words to the hunger strikers.  You have let down the very constituents that you claim to represent.  You are absolutely aware of the dire situation in Sri Lanka, still you kept your strong face away from Canadian Tamils!

Sri Lankan army has not spared even hospitals, as Defence Secratary Gotabaya Rajapakse confirmed in a news interview with Sky News, even hospitals were legitimate targets. Our family and friends were slaughtered barring independent journalist and non-government aid agencies from the so called “no-fire zone”, literally starving the Tamils.  The no-fire zone is actually a no-safe zone, as it was confirmed by satellite pictures from UN and US [UN Leaked - UNOSAT satellite imagery analysis implicates Sri Lankan Government of War Crimes, Satellite Imagery Offers Glimpse on Sri Lankan War Zone].  Sri Lanka did not even spare the hospitals inside the “no-fire zone” as it was witnessed by government official doctors.

While all these gross manslaughter of Tamils were happening, you – our Foreign Affairs minister – called “… LTTE lay down its arms“. The only force that has been fighting for the Tamils, while international countries maintained silence over genocide of Tamils had been called to lay down its arms and surrender.  The humanitarian crisis did not jolt the Conservative Canada to at least voice against Sri Lankan government.  Even world’s most busiest leader, USA President Hon. Barack Obama had taken the time to condemn Sri Lankan government’s indiscriminate shelling of Tamil civilians, but our Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Stephan Harper could only do, maintain his silence.  May be our Conservative Canada is trying to prove that it is not following the US at least in this matter.

Hon. Lawrence Cannon, as you called to lay down its arms, LTTE has done that.  Yes, they have done what you called on them for and look what had happened.  They were massacred when they surrendered [Tamil leaders 'killed as they tried to surrender', Tigers begged me to broker surrender].  Please Sir, you have not addressed the Canadian Tamil protesters, you have not voiced against the Sri Lanka, and when the Tamil leaders surrendered as you called for that, they were massacred.  What are you going to do for this war crime?  Where are you going to keep your face on this matter? Having successfully decimated the only force that was fighting for the Tamils, Sri Lankan government now embarks on ethinic cleansing in other Tamil areas as confirmed by aid agencies, which the Tamils were saying for few decades.

Please Sir, take some actions rather than words.

Thank you and looking forward not to your words, but actions.

Dear Mr. Bruce Fein:

I humbly thank you for taking the struggle of Tamils to the law offices of United States of America.  I read your press release TAMILS FOR JUSTICE ATTORNEY CHALLENGES FBI’S ASSESSMENT OF THE TAMIL TIGERS AND THE GOVERNMENT OF SRI LANKA.  I would like to point out two things. 

First, as I am sure you already know this yet my two cents, FBI noted LTTE is responsible for assassinating two world leaders.  Even though they did not specify the names, I assume they are talking about Rajiv Gandhi in 1991 and Sri Lankan President Ranasinghe Premadasa in 1993.  Rajiv Gandhi was not the leader of India when the incident happened.  He was a former Prime Minister, who lost in the last election but running again in the upcoming election. 

Second, the link to your site in your press release is incorrect.  The HTTP address should finish with .org and not .com. 

Thank you and I have posted this letter on my blog at My Two Cents for Tamils for Justice.

National Post’s false report Monday, Dec 3 2007 

To: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

Date: 2007/12/03 @ 10:54 AM [GMT-5]

Dear Editors,

I have known National Post as a very aggressive media against our Tamil Freedom struggle. But I am not understanding why National Post intentionally manipulates facts against Tamil ethnicity struggle.

I was reading your article TOUGH STAND TAKEN ON SRI LANKA. You have mentioned “Last week, events were held around Toronto to mark Tamil Heroes’ Day, which commemorates the anniversary of the first Tamil Tigers suicide bombing.” This is totally untrue. The Maaveerar Naal or Tamil Heroes’ Day is to commemorate the first death occurred in our armed struggle to freedom, after so many ahimsa protests were brutally beaten and so many anti-Tamil riots. This death is not a suicide mission. You may read about it at From Death of the First Hero.

I have previously sent a letter pointing out similar false reporting. You can view my letter at National Post’s racism.

There are more than 1500 Tamils were arrested in Sri Lanka just for being born in the ethnicity. Sri Lanka imposes emergency law almost continuously last two decades. More over, the state terror Sri Lankan government openly violated human rights, sponsoring paramilitary and deadly military to kill Tamils and political enemies. There is no single ban against the state terror Sri Lankan government. As a Tamil, my only single question is that when will you advocate tangible actions against Sri Lanka to stop the state terrorism?

I have posted this letter on my blog at National Post’s false report.

Dear Editors,

After reading Irwin Cotler MP’s letter to National Post editorial, I was shocked. I knew National Post had not so great opinion about Tamils freedom struggle, but I never knew it distors facts to tarnish our struggle.

To ask a question “Why the Canadian government had not put Tamils on the terrorist list?” is a blatant racism. A prominent media editorial board cannot be this ignorant. I have no idea why National Post delibirately twists the facts to impose a bad impression of Tamils, but to even misinform of a recorded meeting is way over the line. I am disgusted how National Post seems to be working on a political agenda to support the Sri Lankan state terrorists.

I would like to demand National Post to publish an appology for misinforming a recorded meeting and tarnishing Tamils image.

I have posted this letter on my blog at National Post’s racism

Thank you

Dear Sir McKay,

I have read your letter to the editor on Globe.  Thank you for understanding the real situation of Tamils in Sri Lanka.  The Sri Lankan government being a state actor has higher voice and hence it has influenced main media with its false propaganda.  The ethnic Tamils’ cry is slowly reaching the international grounds.

Thank you and hopefully there will be freedom.

Dear D.B.S. Jeyaraj,

I have read your article titled “Trouble overseas” from Frontline.  The article is full of detailed knowledge of all detainees in overseas.

I also noticed that you have spelled the leader of LTTE as “Prabakaran”.  I think it is against the Tamil grammar to write like that.  Moreover, I did not expect a Tamil from Sri Lanka to write it like the Indians.  I would please ask you to keep the Tamil way of writing with “Pira” instead of “Pra”.

Thank you

Dear BBC,

Thanks a lot for falling pray to Sri Lankan state medias. You have effectively identified a letter, which was written on 12-12-2007 faxed from a police station on 14/01/2007, as a LTTE cadre’s. The state terrorists successfully portrayed a letter faxed from a police station as a LTTE cadre’s letter. Wow, you were actually fooled by the Sri Lankan army. Congratulations.

The Terror Posed By Sri Lanka’s New Anti-Terror Laws Monday, Dec 11 2006 

To: [email protected]

Dated: 2006/12/11 @ 9:30 am [GMT-5]

Dear David Poopalapillai:

I saw your Ottawa press release dated December 08, 2006 titled, The Terror Posed By Sri Lanka’s New Anti-Terror Laws. The opening statement of the last paragraph is “The LTTE has been fighting the Sri Lankan government for over two decades in the hope of carving out a separate state for ethnic Tamils in the northeastern region of Sri Lanka, citing systemic discrimination by the majority Sinhalese.” I do not think the phrase “carving out a separate state” is a good choice. This makes a feeling of Tamils as a seperatists. May be “… for over two decades for an independent state for …” or “…for over two decades in the hope of forming an independent state for …” would have been a better choice.

I am also aware, that CTC has been very active in Tamil community and giving great services. Please do not take my email as a downgrader. I have posted this letter in my blog here

Dear ____________,

The CTC appreciates your enthusiasm for the cause and is pleased that you were passionate enough to write to us in response to a press release that we issued. Your suggestion showed both critical thought and dedication to the plight of Sri Lankan Tamils.

In restrospect, you are probably right. “Carving” connotes a more aggressive action than words like “forming” or “fighting for”.

We appreciate your suggestion and applaud your commitment. Thank you for recognizing the CTC’s efforts. Please feel free to contact us anytime. We will welcome your thoughtful input on future matters.

Sincerely,

David Poopalapillai

Re: Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids Tuesday, Oct 17 2006

Dear Sirs:

I have read the news, Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids, or Sri Lanka says committed to talks with Tiger rebels, or Sri Lanka’s bloodiest suicide bombing kills 103 people, on your website. I was shocked to find that you have noted as “people”, while it was infact Sri Lankan Navy personnel. I do not know the intention of the twisted fact, but this is not the way I would expect a prominent news media to report. Even the photos taken at the scene of the incident clearly shows the weapons.

Even many Sri Lankan state supportive news medias were moderate enough to report the fact. Moreover CNN reported as “… killed dozens of navy sailors …“. In addition, I have provided many links below to the sources of the same news, which reports as “Navy sailors” instead of “people”, which appear as civilians. I always think your service is unbiased, but it seems like your reporters may not be. I hope to see non-twisted truths in the future reportings.

I have also archived this letter in my web blog at Re: Blast sparks Sri Lanka air raids.
