The defeat of the rebels in Sri Lanka, the reported death of Tamil Tiger leader Vellupillai Prabhakaran and the issue of displaced people, have generated emotional protests from Tamil communities across the world.

Demonstrations were held across Australia, Europe, and Canada. Support from the Tamil diaspora was crucial for the Tamil separatist cause during the civil war. Now, the overseas Tamils are pondering how best to promote their cause in Sri Lanka.
