Mullivaikal Massacre May 2009 – Tamil Americans Commemorate

WASHINGTON (May 18 2015)  Tamils in the United States of America unite with those all over the world commemorating the sixth anniversary of the Mullivaikal Massacre. We respectfully remember those who sacrificed their lives for the noblest of human ideals – freedom. We also remember and mourn all others who needlessly lost their lives in the massacre. Our prayers and thoughts are especially with those who lost their kith and kin but have been denied the right to express their grief or mourn by the Sri Lankan government.

We look forward to the day when justice and peace will be restored and those who mourn will find solace and comfort
