The Demands of the Tamil People: Three Key Points

The demands of the Tamil people in the aftermath of the slaughter of ethnic Tamils and continual denial of self-determination by the Sri Lankan state:
– A reversing of the American resolution in the UNHRC which has all but made the Sri Lankan government immune from prosecution for war crimes committed against the Tamil people, particularly those in the last portion of active conflict.  [1]
– An independent, unbiased international investigation on the genocidal activities of the Sri Lankan government with oversight from various UN agencies and other countries
– A referendum which is to be closely monitored for legitimacy for the independence of the Tamil people. (On the Tamil’s right to self-determination: [2]”Conscious of the need for the creation of conditions of stability and well-being and peaceful and friendly relations based on respect for the principles of equal rights and self-determination of all peoples, and of universal respect for, and observance of, human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion”)It is key, that this referendum be monitored in order to stop the Sri Lankan government from tactics of intimidation, threats and assassination [3]
