Mullivaikkal massacre ||Tamils mark Tamil Genocide Day on May 18 ||Mullivaikkal Genocide Remembrance

 
It is held each year on 18 May
 
It is in this climate of unbridled state terrorism by the Sri Lankan state, we are gathered here. To remind ourselves; to remind the world, that we will not forget what was done to our people. We will not abandon our people. We will not let the international community abandon our people.
 
May 18th defines precisely what cannot be reconciled. As we remain confounded by our nation’s collective loss, the Sinhala nation praises its government and celebrates its military. What the Eelam Tamil nation calls genocide, the Sinhala nation calls ‘victory’. And so, on a day like today, as we remember May 18th at Mullivaikkaal, we are ever more resolved that our nation’s security, the island’s peace and the region’s stability lie in Tamil Eelam.
