200000 tamil civilians skeduled to be killed on 27th april 2009?
On April 27th (tommorow) the Sri lankan government has planned to kill 200000 tamil civilians through chemical weaopons. Many tamils all over the world have been shocked. Not only is this a violation against tamil human rights, but they are also using chemical weopons.
Historyof sri lanka:
Before Britain had conquered Sri lanka, Tamils and Sinhalaese people were independent. Tamils had kings who ruled within themselves (like england 100s of years ago). Then when Sri lanka was conquered. The British brought everyone toghether to rule them as one. Then when british left they gave most of the power they had to Sinhalaese people. The sinhalaese people then started to argue with tamils over the little land they had. Then in around early 1960s the first fightings broke out. Then in early 1970s Vellupille Prabakaran started an organisation called Tamil Tigers. From then on there has been a civil war going on. Gordon Brown in 2009 asked for ceasefire, this the Sri lankan president claimed was unneccassary. Chemical weopons have been used on Tamil civillians before. Now on the 27th of April 2009 (tommorow) there are claims that the Sri lankan government are going to use chemical weopons on tamil civilians. Human rights have been completely ignored in this cirisis, yet noone does any action. In Gasa, when around 1500 people were killed the UN called for immediate ceasefire. Though in Sri lanka thousands have been killed and no-one yet has taken any actions.
on the 28th of april thousands of hopeful people were relieved to hear that the ceasefire demands were taken and ceasefire was given in the war. but this was not to last as the government then said that this was to be only very short time.
