Description

Organized By: Canadian Tamil Congress ( CTC )

Time May Be Changed

It has been 26 years since the war in Sri Lanka began. Since that time, over 100,000 Tamil people have been killed.

On Saturday, March 28, 2009, in Vancouver City Hall, we will gather and then walk together as a group to demand an end to the Sri Lanka Government’s Genocide of Tamils. With your help, hundreds, and possibly thousands of people will come together to march for an end to this unacceptable suffering of Tamils.

The peace is urgently needed because in the last two months alone over 3000 innocent civilians have been killed, many of which were children and hundred thousands seriously injured.

The conflict in Sri Lanka has reached its most critical stage, the government squeezed 300,000 civilians in a small “safe zone”, where they are dropping cluster bombs and firing multi barrel rocket launchers from all directions into this area, the civilians have no place to run and no place to hide.

In the last two weeks alone over 20 people have died because of starvation, most of them are children.

Please stand with us for peace and lend your support. Pass this message on to your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and members of your religious and volunteer organizations. Ask them to join with us to show our opposition to the current war, and our support for a more peaceful world.

* Please use public transportation or arrange someone to pick you up from the end location. Dress warm and comfortably. Please bring bottle water with you as well.

~~PLEASE FORWARD THE INVITATION TO ALL YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS WHETHER TAMIL OR NON-TAMIL

PLEASE FORWARD TO OTHERS AND BRING EVERY ONE OF ALL AGES ALONG. DON’T FORGET TO INVITE EVERYONE FROM YOUR LIST!!! ♥ ♥
