Sri Lanka land grabs
It takes seconds, Sign the Petition here

(JAFFNA, Sri Lanka) - After the end of Civil war in Sri Lanka in May 2009, Tamils are facing more and more hardship to carry on their livelihood. Winning the war against Tamil militant is viewed by the Government of Sri Lankan as winning against Tamil people. Government uses this as propaganda within the majority Sinhalese community to gain popularity.

One of the recent developments is Land Grab by Sinhalese forces. Our friends and families lived in their land for whole lives in the land were chased out by forces. Protests against the government were blocked and people are getting warning by armed forces of the government. UN can take action against this development.

Sri Lankan civil war was ended during 2009 May. Still the wars on Tamils by the Sri Lankan forces are staged on their livelihood. Government is targeting Tamils historical land, their cultural, educational properties and values. More than 500,000 people are living outside their homes. In the recent development, Sri Lankan government forces grab the Lands own by Tamils and increase the speed of colonization with the poor Sinhalese in their lands. Also, Hindu and Muslim religious places are targeted by Buddhist monks to station Buddha statues to claim that they are Sinhalese historical places. Last Monday a protest by leading Tamil political parties rally against the Land Grab was blocked by Police in Jaffna, Northern Province of Sri Lanka. A war crime alleged Sri Lankan Government and their forces which are 98% of Sinhalese populated should stop threatening Tamils and Grab their Lands. Please sign the petition against the Land Grab and UN can take action against this.

From the history whole Sri Lanka is the Land of sinhalese. what bullshit you meant by Tamil Land? Tamils are like gypsies, no land. They thoght to misuse the chance given by Sunhalese to live in peace in this country. They were sadly misled by fire-setting foreign nations. what to do? Now those Elamists can shout at out of the county, but not in SL. Dogs can bark till they die.
