May 18, 2018 – Tamil Genocide

It is with a deep sense of reverence, that I join with you to remember the tens of thousands of men, women and children who were killed during the Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka.

The war was an uprising against the Sri Lankan government by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE or Tamil Tigers), a separatist militant group in order to protect and gain rights for the Tamil minority.

Since the end of the civil war in Sri Lanka in May, 2009, there has been a marked deterioration in Sri Lanka with respect to human rights and the rule of law. The current situation is most disappointing to those who believed there was an opportunity to create a viable and strong democratic country with the end of the civil war.
