Hon. Ian Cohen, NSW Parliament, Member of Legislative Council and Greens Party delivered a speech in NSW Parliament on “Sri Lanka and Tamil Conflict”
“Too many lives have been lost, and each day we keep silent we allow more deaths to occur. It is important that the Government of Australia and the international community recognise that the targeting of a minority has been taking place for decades. What we see taking place today is but a culmination of successive attacks targeting the Tamils. It is important that the Government of Australia and the international community recognise the legitimate grievances of the Tamil people and acknowledge the legitimacy of their struggle for self-determination.”
