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 John,

I agree with your argument that “Desperation is no excuse for murder and mayhem”. But how can a tiny minority in a tiny island could do better when the state crushed their peaceful democratic efforts, as what Mandela and Gandhi did, in 1953, 1958, 1977, and 1983 with iron hand? [1]

Unlike in China (after Tienanmen square) or recent Myanmar, the international community did not react. As a result, the state terror went into high gears. Further, Canada is now home to more than 250000; most came here as political refugees, fearing Sri Lanka’s oppression.

LTTE is not the cause of the mayhem but it’s the product of state terrorism. When Tamils realized that none is willing to help, they started to build their own armed movement. If Gandhi could free India without ‘terrorism’, then why not Americans could not free themselves without being called ‘terrorist’ by UK?

If every country believes in negotiations, we all do not have to have military.

Tamil struggle to live free has started after the British left Sri Lanka in 1948. Sri Lanka was ruled by two kingdoms before the colonial powers took control and it was British who amalgamated the two administrations. When they left, they left it at the hands of Sinhalese majority. We have tried all peaceful protests, but they were met with state terrorism.

Tamils resorted to arms liberation as the last option. If the international community has the courage to force Sri Lanka to offer an acceptable political package, say as the province of Quebec, the bloodshed will stop.

Dear Camilla Hall,

I have read your article titled Tamil Tiger Political Chief Thamilchelvan Killed on Bloomberg.  You have mentioned “…Tamils, who make up about 8.5 percent of the South Asian nation’s 20 million people”.  I am wondering where you have got your statistics from.

The official statistic that Government of Sri Lanka uses was taken on 1981.  Due to ethnic conflict, there was no statistics were taken in North East areas of Sri Lanka.  The statistic notes 12.7 Sri Lankan Tamils and 5.5 Indian Tamils [1].  It is based on this statistics 22 Tamil member of parliaments were elected as the quota system is what in use in Sri Lankan electoral process.  If you are not using the official statistic that even the Sri Lankan government uses, then how credible your news source?

I have posted this letter on my blog at Bloomberg’s falls statistics.

Thank you

Dear Markham representatives,

As I am one of many Tamils from the Markham constituents, I would like to thank you for your continues sympathy and support of Tamils struggle to get freedom from the oppression of Sri Lankan state terrorist government.

Here are couple of non Sri Lankan documentary videos from YouTube to understand our reason for struggle. Buddha’s teaching of non-violence has been completely ignored by these power hungry/ racist Buddhist monks.

Why IRC refused to help? Thursday, Sep 13 2007

Dear Sir/ Madam:

I heard the news that P Nedumaran, head of Tamil National Movement, was arrested for his attempt to carry food, medicines, and other essential items for civilians in Sri Lanka, and later released. I was reading the news at IBN Live, TN’s Pro-LTTE leader Nedumaran arrested. I noted that they have reported as “…Indian Red Cross refused to carry supplies that his organisation had collected for the Tamils …”. I was wondering why Red Cross refused to carry already collected supplies for the needy.

As you are already aware, Tamils are immensely suffering from the oppression of Sri Lankan state terrorism. He has done the enormous job of collecting essential items and initiated the move to supply the collected. If an organization like Red Cross, which has the mandate to help the needy, could not help when help is already initiated, I wonder what is the real agenda of such organizations. I hate to admit that I am very disappointed in Red Cross’s decision and I think Red Cross should act to relieve humanitarian crisis unfolding in Sri Lanka rather than working on behalf of governments.

I have posted my letter on my blog at Why IRC refused to help?.

Thank you for your understanding.

Praba or Piraba? Wednesday, Aug 1 2007

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

Sir Mark Holland,

I would like to thank you for speaking for the plight of Tamil people in Sri Lanka. I came to know that you have sent a letter to our honourable prime minister on the plight of Tamil people in Sri Lanka at Another MP Calling Canadian Prime Minister to open Consulate office in Jaffna, Sri Lanka

It is with great difficulty that Tamil people have to travel to Colombo to communicate with Canadian embassy. The distance between Colombo and Jaffna are roughly 300 KM yet it takes one whole day to travel. The land route is blocked by Sri Lankan Army [SLA] even though that is a violation of the Cease Fire Agreement. People line up early as one to two days before to get on board a ship. Now that a Tamil cannot temporarily stay in Colombo more than 48 hours, it is with great financial and safety burden the Tamil people have to communicate with Canadian Embassy. It would be a great ease on Tamil people, if a branch of Canadian Embassy is opened in Jaffna.

I thank you again for your voice for a crying ethnicity in Sri Lanka.

SCARBOROUGH, July 20, 2007

__MY_NAME__

__MY_EMAIL_ADDRESS__

Dear __MY_NAME__

Thank you for your letter regarding my correspondence to Prime Minister Harper requesting that a Canadian Consulate be opened in Jaffna, Sri Lanka.

It is clear to me, as well as many observers of the region, that the situation in Sri Lanka has become untenable. Contrary to the views held by some on the actions of the Sri Lankan government, I have heard enough to convince me that political efforts are being undertaken to marginalize the Tamil population.

It is my firm belief that Canada can play a role to play in helping to ease tensions and support genuine efforts aimed at bringing peace to that country. To be fair, successive Canadian governments have taken some steps but I believe Canada can do more – especially with respect to easing the suffering of innocent people on all sides. I am therefore appalled that the Government of Canada does not seem to be taking seriously the reports of violence that have been coming out of our own officials at our embassy in Colombo.

I also have had several constituents indicate to me that their loved ones in Colombo encounter considerable difficulties in accessing the services of our embassy. Ongoing immigration applicants and even people simply trying to acquire information from the embassy have been impeded by what can only be viewed as a governmental policy that seems to have been crafted to remove or make life difficult for Tamils residing in the capital area.

It is for these reasons that I feel that it is necessary for a Canadian consulate be opened in Jaffna and be able to provide Tamils with unrestricted access to Canadian immigration services.

It is time for Government of Canada to take concrete action to ease the tension and horrific outbursts of violence in Sri Lanka. While it is my belief that Canada should and could do more with its aid policy, the Sri Lankan Government cannot escape its share of responsibility. I also believe that any other party should escape responsibility for disrupting legitimate efforts designed to bring peace and security to the country. Make no mistake, any act that foments unrest and violence is simply unacceptable – whoever carries those acts out.

I am sure you would agree that those who aim to perpetuate instability, like those who perpetrate any kind of heinous act of violence, must be held fully accountable.

Once again, thank you for providing me with your views on this very serious matter.

Sincerely,

Hon. Dan McTeague, P.C., M.P.

Dear Hon. Dan McTeague:

Thank you for your reply. We have had the war for too long and discrimination from 1950s. I hope Canada can play a pivotal role in Sri Lankan Tamils’ life sooner than “too late”.

TamilOne, why not coverage nimirvu 2007? Wednesday, Jul 18 2007 

To: [email protected]

Date: 2007/06/10 @ 10:32 pm [GMT-5]

Dear Sir/ Madam:

I have been to nimirvu 2007, which happened yesterday [Saturday June 10]. I noticed TamilOne did not take coverage of the event.

The event highlighted the sufferings of academic community of Tamileelam. There was a very movable speech by Neethan Shan. I was wondering why TamilOne did not take initiative to take coverage of the event. The main purpose of the event seemed at aiming younger student generation of Canada to make them understand our Tamileelam struggle and need for our unity.

If I may, I humbly ask TamilOne to be united in our Tamileelam struggle and let our Tamil Canadian understand and support the need for an independent nation.

Dear Sir or Madam,

It is of the utmost urgency that you address the grievous humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka at the fourth session of the Human Rights Council next week.

The human rights situation deteriorates daily and the people of Sri Lanka need your help. Along with more than 5,900 other concerned individuals, I signed a petition that was delivered to your offices last month calling for immediate UN intervention in Sri Lanka, including a UN human rights monitoring mission.

It is reported that HRW is also calling for you to instate such a measure. Please support the appointment of a HR monitoring mission when the Council meets next week and advocate for diligent attention to the catastrophic situation in Sri Lanka.

I have posted this letter on my blog at Save Tamils from Sri Lankan government
