Tamils march in Geneva demanding independence


The Pongu Thamil event started at 14:00 European time on Saturday in Geneva, Switzerland.

Thousands of Tamil diaspora members from across Europe gathered in Switzerland Saturday and marched towards the United Nations Office at Geneva urging solidarity from the World Community for Tamil people’s right to Self Determination and Statehood.

The Tamils across Europe have gathered here “demanding that the international community recognize an independent Tamil state in the island of Sri Lanka,” said activist of the Tamil organisation, which organized the rally.

The demonstration was planned to coincide with the start on Saturday of the 21st session of the U.N. Human Rights Council, which runs in Geneva.

The protestors assembled in the Murugathasan square in front of the United Nations headquarters in Geneva.
