By Ron Ridenour, 04 October 2011 - “We Tamils, inside and outside the island of Sri Lanka, still want an independent state. And because the war crimes and severe brutality of the Mahinda Rajapaksa government against our people has become well known, our cause is being spoken about all over the world,” Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran told me recently in Manhattan, New York.
“Tamils always looked upon Fidel and Che as heroes,” the PM said. “Our people are shocked by Cuba’s position since May 2009. Perhaps it is due to poor communication. We want to send a delegation to Cuba, to Venezuela and other ALBA [Bolivarian Alliance of the Peoples of Latin America] governments to explain our position and to engage in dialogue.” PM Rudrakumaran maintains that his Transnational Government is not tied to any government or international power. “We are not at the mercy of any power, but will accept support for our cause from whoever cooperates with us.”

By Jeyashanker Murugiah, 30 September 2011 - Since 1956 to ‐ date, the Tamils have been killed with impunity. The Sri Lankan government should be charged with the crimes of genocide. Full accountability should be established for the crimes under international law. Finally, the perpetrators must be brought to justice and the Tamils must be saved. To‐ date the demands of the UN, EU, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, International Crisis Group and other human rights organisations to stop the HR violations against the Tamils have been ignored by the government of Sri Lanka. If you want this campaign to become a great success, then you ought to join us in the campaign to create the success, you want to see. Please join us to bring the perpetrators to justice in the International Criminal Court.

TGTE, September 18, 2011 - Tamils of Diaspora will hold two ‘PonghuThamil’ mega-rallies this week, the first on Monday, Sep 19th in Geneva, in which Tamils from all over Europe will join hands with Swiss Tamils to advance towards the UN Human Rights Council Headquarters in Geneva, and the second on Friday, Sep 23rd in front of the UN Headquarters in New York in which Tamils from Canada will join forces with American Tamils to demonstrate against the presence of President Mahinda Rajapakse at the UN.
Today, the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam earnestly appeals to all Diaspora Tamils to gather in their thousands in these rallies and raise their voices of solidarity recognizing the needs of this hour.
The Geneva rally coincides with the sessions in progress at the UN Human Rights Council. These sessions portend an opportunity when the attention of the International community is focused on the genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes perpetrated by the Sri Lankan Government upon the Tamil people. We recognize the emergence of a strong consensus among the International community in favour of an international inquiry on Sri Lanka Government’s execution of the war against Tamils, in concomitance with their abject failure to undertake the requisite proceedings envisaged in the Report of the UNSG Expert Panel.

After a prolonged delay, the President of India has rejected the mercy plea from Perarivalan, Murugan and Shanthan who were condemned to death in former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s murder trial in 1998. This news has deeply saddened all of us, especially when the three men have been jailed for more than 20 years and more than 11 years have passed since the submission of their mercy plea petition.
Executions are against humanity. They are contradictory to the right to live clause of International Human Rights laws. Appropriately, the Amnesty International has commented that these executions are murders committed by governments.
