Three years ago, on 27th January 2009, we began Tamil Justice, as the very first bombs of the Sri Lankan Government fell on our homeland – Tamil Eelam.
As the international community silently watched the bloodbath of our loved ones, seven young Australian Tamils began a hunger strike in Sydney to ask the Australian Government to speak out against the massacre unfolding in the island of Sri Lanka.
What began as a way for us to document international reaction, Tamil diaspora activism and reports of the horrific and devastating atrocities taking place against the Tamil people of Sri Lanka, transformed into a platform of information for diaspora Tamils, journalists and politicians.
It also became a way for us to channel our sadness, frustration and anger as we helplessly watched our people get massacred.
Over the 3 years we have made 2895 posts and had 19594 views. We believe It is the most comprehensive archive of the activism that took place in Australia during and after the war.
Today as we end this part of our work, be assured that our efforts will continue through other forms.
We thank all those who have given us words of encouragement and advice to make this blog a success.
There is still so much to do. We have only just started.
