Sri Lankans living in Finland have gathered yesterday in Helsinki to take part in a demonstration against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) terrorist activities in Sri Lanka.
The demonstration was held for 2 hours in Helsinki city centre in front of the Finish Parliament with a strong participation of peace loving Sri Lankans and Finns alike.
The demonstrators exhibited photographs showing destructions, killings and maiming carried out by the LTTE in the ongoing civil war. They also distributed leaflets sending the message to proscribe LTTE’s front organization Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) and raising awareness among the Finnish public.
On the other hand Sri Lankans in Germany and all who reject LTTE terrorism held a demonstration today in Berlin to protest against the LTTE intimidation of Tamils living in Germany, Germany's failure to ban the LTTE as a terrorist organisation and the recruitment of child soldiers.
"Sri Lankans Against LTTE Terror - Germany" urges the Federal Government and the Interior Minister to identify and ban the LTTE as a terrorist organisation in Germany.
Numerous front organisations such as Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO), Tamil Coordination Committee (TCC), and Tamil Youth Organization (TYO) etc., which support the LTTE must also be included in this ban, they said.
