Sri Lanka: Thousands Rally in Jaffna For Tamil's Rights – Calls for Referendum For Political Solution !

A Section of the Crowd

Urged India to take more pro-active role in the plight of Tamils

JAFFNA , SRI LANKA, September 17, 2019 / —

Braving rainy weather, thousands rally in Sri Lanka's northern town of Jaffna for Tamil's main demands and called for conducting a Referendum for a political solution to end the protracted Tamil conflict in the island.

Mr. C.V. Wigneswaran, co-chair of the Tamil People's Council addressing the rally said that what happened to Tamils is Genocide and backed it by the requirements of Genocide adopted by the United Nations.

He appealed to India to take a more pro-active role in the plight of Tamils.

"The soft approach by India so far with regard to our ethnic problem we are sure would soon give way to a more dynamic approach which will ensure the protection of our identity and continued residency in our traditional homelands" he said.

"Having understood the gravity of the situation where our people simply disappear, lands get expropriated, our economy gets seriously affected we request the International Community for help through this Eluga Thamil demonstration"

It is not possible to tolerate such injustices and repressive activities anymore, he said.

"The International Community must also consider conducting a Referendum in terms of International principles of Law among the Tamil people to find out their views with regard to the ideal political solution which could bring peace and amity among all communities".


Guru Brahma…

My dear Tamils!

In the first instance I salute whole heartedly all those dear ones who have congregated here in several thousands from the North and East.

It is the crying baby which attracts the attention of the mother to have its milk. When the baby cries the mother remembers the time is up to feed the child. Saint Manicavasagar sang his hymn saying “If I cry oh lord! I will have you!” So even God runs towards those who cry for Him. We are gathered here today to tell our Government and the International Community aloud the crying state of our people!

We do not intend crying publicly today. But we shall certainly stamp our feelings and make the International Community turn their attention towards us!

I speak here today as Co – Chairman of Tamil People’s Council (TPC). None will be called to speak on behalf of our Party. In pursuance of the request made by some of you I am also being called up to the Rostrum from amongst you.

From pre – historic times the Tamils have as a stable community of people governed themselves until 16th century AD when they came under the yoke of colonialism. For nearly 450 years foreigners’ rein lasted. In 1948 when Independence from the British dawned under a Unitary Constitution the rights of the Tamils were lost. This was the history before Independence.

Thereafter successive Sinhalese dominated governments resorted to activities to undermine us and to indulge in “genocide” through legal means and extra judicial means in the light of the Tamils not being provided with the right to solve their own problems, to develop their own areas and to secure their own areas of residency. Their objections to such activities by successive Sinhalese dominated governments brought out by democratic and peaceful means as well as by violent means when all those democratic means failed, consitute our history after Independence.

The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide (Genocide Convention) was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 9th December, 1948, and acceded to by Sri Lanka in 1950. It provides as follows –
“In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intend to destroy, in whole or in part, national, ethnical, racial or religious groups.

a) Killing Members of the group;
b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to Members of the group;
c) Deliberately inflicting on the group, conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

Thus “genocide” does not mean only the killing of members of a group of people. It extends to causing bodily and mental harm, causing physical destruction, sterilization to prevent births in the group and transporting children from victims’ group to another group.

Between 1948 when Independence was granted up to 2009 when war ended there had been innumerable ways in which our traditional home lands have been expropriated, demography in traditionally Tamil areas have been deliberately changed to accommodate Sinhalese colonists from outside the North and East, many Tamils murdered mercilessly, many caused to be simply disappear and thousands of our women folk have been forcibly abused and raped.

Our traditional historical, archaeological and cultural remains have been destroyed surreptitiously. Over a million of our people have been chased out from their traditional residences and forced to flee to other Countries as refugees. Our assets and belongings have been destroyed and our economy has been brought to a standstill.

Intermittent interventions by foreign countries to bring about reconciliation did not deter the continued commitment of such offences against humanity. Right before the eyes of the world “a war without witnesses” was conducted and a human tragedy was enacted in 2009 at the time the war came to an end. In this background Sri Lanka was brought before United Nations for accountability. But despite that, acts of genocide continues in Tamil areas even now.

The Army, the Forest Department, the Wild Life Department, the Housing Authority, the Mahaweli Authority, the Archaeological Department and other limbs of the Government machinery are being used to erase off traces of Tamil residency and Tamil identity in the North and East which acts amount to acts of genocide. Successive governments are using their Departments successfully to undermine the Tamils in their own areas.

It is not possible to tolerate such injustices and repressive activities anymore. It is to tell the world at large that we will not cow down to such unreasonable actions on the part of successive governments that we are conducting this Eluha Thamil demonstration.

We are gathered here today at the Jaffna Esplanade clamouring for our rights. At this very moment many of our brethren in our diaspora are staging Eluha Thamil demonstrations in their own Countries. Our Tamil brethren in Tamil Nadu have openly come forward to lend support to our agitations.

Our People truly believe that India would put forward a solution to enable the Tamils to live in their traditional homelands using the legal right of self determination. The soft approach by India so far with regard to our ethnic problem we are sure would soon give way to a more dynamic approach which will ensure the protection of our identity and continued residency in our traditional homelands. We do ask India through our Eluga Thamil demonstrations to change their hitherto sterile attitude to a more robust and judicious one.

None should underestimate the demonstration of our people stressing their legal and community rights. A little while ago our Resolutions were read out by our Co – Chairman.

Apart from the six demands reiterated he stressed the need to follow the recommendations for a Political settlement put forward to the Government by the Tamil People’s Council earlier. In addition we would like to ask the Government not to appoint persons from outside our Province to vacancies found in our Public Service.

We would further request our Central Governments to form an Interim Special Economic Mechanism with the help of the International Community to develop the war battered North and East to enable our people to reach the living standards maintained by others in the South. We ask of our Sinhalese and Muslim brethren to admit/recognize our right to self determination in order that we may live with self dignity in our areas. We further request the Government to find out from our people what sort of political solution they want by conducting a Referendum in this regard among them and act according to their wishes.

The Sinhalese and the Tamils have lived in this Island as indigenous communities side by side. We Tamils have not stood in your path of growth and development. We want you to live and let us live too. Therefore we ask of you to please desist from continuing with your activities prejudicial to us and recognize our right of internal self determination.

To the International Community we say the continued residency and identity of an ancient community of this world are nearing extinction on account of the decades’ old ethnic strife and they are under obligation to take this fact into their consideration. We beg of the International Community to act in terms of International Human Rights’ norms, principles and Covenants and perform your obligations humanely.

All attempts by the International Community to bring Sri Lanka before the Human Rights’ Council under an accountability mechanism on account of the War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity have failed.
The removal of the GSP Tax Exemption given to Sri Lanka by the European Union has not deterred the Sri Lankan Government pursuing its anti human rights’ course. This must be taken into consideration by the International Community.

The appointment of Lt.General Savindra de Silva as Army Commander in the background of his being found guilty of War Crimes and Crimes against humanity by International Human Rights’ Organisations is evidence to the scant respect Sri Lanka pays to International norms, values and opinion. The successive Governments of Sri Lanka have been able to deceive the International Community as well as the Tamils and continue upto date with its genocidal pursuits.

Having understood the gravity of the situation where our people simply disappear, lands get expropriated, our economy gets seriously affected we request the International Community for help through this Eluga Thamil demonstration.

Our people have sacrificed their daily pursuits to be here. Traders have closed their business establishments at great loss to be here at this Eluga Thamil demonstration in order to show their solidarity with our non violent struggle for Justice. We hope the International Community would understand the feelings of our people. The International Community should also consider taking Sri Lanka to the ICC for appropriate action by them.

We also request the UN to send a Special Rapporteur to Sri Lanka to examine the Human Rights’ violations being committed against the Tamils. We also request the High Commissioner for UNHRC to open up branches in the North and East to superintend and over see Human Rights’ violations still being committed.

The International Community must also consider conducting a Referendum in terms of International principles of Law among the Tamil people to find out their views with regard to the ideal political solution which could bring peace and amity among all communities.

Finally I like to make a special observation. There are no terrorists among us. Only those affected by State terrorism are among us. We ask the powers that be not to couple the names of our people with those who have been identified as fundamentalist religious terrorists. Our youth and others fought for a noble cause – the independence of their people. It is as a reaction to State terrorism that our youth resorted to arms. But successive governments have demonised their spirit of independence as terrorism. I call upon the Governments present and/future to cease from behaving in this fashion. It were the successive Sinhala dominated governments after Independence who forced our youth to take up to arms. It is time our Sinhala brothers and sisters found out the truth about what has happened so far.

History has been distorted, Truth has been blunted, our people have been branded as terrorists and extremists and many of them have been found guilty and punished under a law which goes contrary to our general principles of law. It is time our Sinhala brothers and sisters looked upon these criminal activities of their successive governments with shame and regret.

Our Sinhala brothers and sisters must realise the falsity of the statements, activities and behavior of their successive governments so far and choose to help their Tamil brethren so that they would find light at the end of the tunnel. Making this request of my dear Sinhala brethren I bring my short speech to a conclusion.

Arise Tamil! Long live the Tamils!

The DPCW is a legal framework for spreading a culture of peace on a local, national, and international level. The DPCW, which serves as the solution for worldwide peace and conflict resolution, has already been enacted as a National Declaration in several countries around the world; including Antigua and Barbuda, Seychelles and eSwatini, and international organizations such as the Central American Parliament. The goal is for the law to be presented as a regional resolution through the CARICOM, Caribbean Community.
The trip also marked the 5th Annual Commemoration of HWPL’s September 18th World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit held in Seoul, South Korea. This Summit, held annually since 2014, brings together political and religious leaders, heads of women’s and youth groups, civil society, and press from around the world and provides a platform for discussion and cooperation for peace.

Samuel Hinds, former Prime Minister of Guyana and Co-Chair of CCLP, when asked what’s the most important need for the Caribbean, he answered “Peace and the culture of peace.”

Documentarian Returns to Find Parents’ Ancestral Homes in Mexico & Palestine After Being Forced to Leave Decades Ago

Traces of Home

Traces of Home

Kickstarter campaign launched for new film that seeks to provide accurate representations of the American immigrant community through her personal story.

CHICAGO, IL, USA, September 16, 2019 / — Colette Ghunim, Chicago-based director of the award-winning documentary "The People's Girls", which investigated the issue of sexual harassment in Egypt, is currently working on her first feature-length film, "Traces of Home".

"Traces of Home" explores the tragic pasts of Ghunim’s parents, Hosni and Iza. Her father, Hosni, was forced to flee with his parents from political strife from his native Palestine. Meanwhile, Ghunim’s mother Iza fled an abusive father in Mexico with her mother. The film documents the family’s return to their childhood homes in Mexico and Palestine, examining what it means to be both an immigrant and Colette’s disconnect from her identity in the process.

With the ongoing national discussion involving the plight of immigrants and their contribution to American culture, "Traces of Home" offers viewers a rare glimpse into the world of a family whose lives were forever altered by their decision to come to America.

"My goal is to provide a positive narrative for the Latino and Arab communities across the nation,” said Ghunim, “while exploring how first-generation Americans like me continue to struggle with our lack of cultural belonging anywhere."

The Kickstarter campaign, going on now, must reach its goal of $35,000 by 12pm on October 4th, 2019 in order to receive any of the funds pledged by its backers. The film announced the Kickstarter launch with an event that raised $5500 celebrating Mexican culture in the heart of Pilsen at La Luz Gallery with food, DJ, dancing, stand up comedy with Gwen La Roka, a raffle, a live Kickstarter raise, presentation by Mujeres Latinas en Accion and Alderman Byron Sigcho Lopez, and a screening of the new trailer for Traces of Home. Ghunim and her team will continue fundraising in order to meet its goal by October 4th.

IAOVC Decries Disregard of Voters & Insult to Immigrants, Catholics & Italian Americans in NYC's Cabrini Statue Debacle

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini – Patroness of Immigrants – 1st American Saint


Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition

Chirlane McCray, wife of Mayor DeBlasio, heads group that will not build a statue of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, despite saint receiving the most nominations

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, USA, September 16, 2019 / — The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“IAOVC”), a nationwide coalition of anti-bias activists, admonishes Chirlane McCray, wife of Mayor Bill DeBlasio, and her “She Built NYC” group, for ignoring the will of the people while insulting immigrants, Catholics and Italian Americans for the decision to not erect a statue honoring the first American Catholic saint and patroness of immigrants, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, an Italian immigrant who founded 67 schools and orphanages dedicated to the sick, poor and immigrants in New York City.

The McCray group “She Built NYC” was established in June of 2018 to create more statues honoring women around the city of New York. The public was asked to nominate women for a potential statue from over 300 eligible women. Mother Cabrini received the highest number of votes, more than double the votes received by the second-place finisher. However, last month it was disclosed that the selection committee, headed by McCray, excluded Mother Cabrini from having a statue, choosing instead seven others.

“In this one move, the First Lady of New York has subverted the will of the people and insulted immigrants, Catholics and Italian Americans,” stated Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of IAOVC. “How can she and her group possibly defend such a disgraceful and disrespectful decision that affects so many people. What a complete debacle of a process that was supposed to be something good for New York City.”

A multitude of New Yorkers and organizations have objected to the decision to exclude Mother Cabrini from the statue honor and have contacted New York First Lady McCray to seek a reversal of this decision. IAOVC sent a letter to McCray which has gone unanswered. The letter is posted on the IAOVC website at:

IAOVC is urging all who object to this action by First Lady McCray and her She Built NYC group to contact her at or at – and Twitter @nycfirstlady

IAOVC’s sole focus and objective is to fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans. It is the only national Italian American organization with this exclusive mandate. IAOVC’s stated mission is to “…secure the rightful representation of Americans of Italian origin and of all peoples whose paths toward social equality have been impeded. The powers of intellect, wisdom and due process of law will be brought to bear on all inequities.”

IAOVC issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to over 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by IAOVC founder and President, Dr. Manny Alfano, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation as well as activates the IAOVC nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, social media, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Alfano Digest also contains interesting and informative Italian American cultural and heritage news and information. To receive the Digest, email Dr. Alfano at

Immigration Advocate Rosena Michel to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2019 / — The term “DREAMers” is consistently in the news, referring to young men and women brought to the United States illegally by their parents when they were children or teenagers.

Over the last 18 years, at least 10 versions of the Dream Act have been introduced in Congress to protect young immigrants vulnerable to deportation. None have passed.

In 2012, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) an exercise of prosecutorial discretion, providing temporary relief from deportation and work authorization to certain young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

The issue of immigration is fraught with politics and bureaucracy designed to overwhelm would-be Americans and DREAMers, but there are individuals willing to help those in need. Rosena Michel is one such person. Rosena welcomes immigrants from everywhere and works with them to navigate the immigration process. She also educates then about the day to day immigration changes.

“I don’t work with immigration, I work with immigrants,” says Rosena. “I work for you.”

When Rosena was a child, Haiti was a dangerous place to live with violence and drugs.

“In my home country, even if you're rich, we never think you're really rich unless you put your feet on American soil,” says Rosena. “Of course, once you're here, the experience is different than you may have thought, but the American Dream is within reach if you follow the right path. The right path is focus on the positive, not the negative. Make sure you get an education, listen to the elders, and follow what America offers you, which can be a lot. The kids I serve or the parents I work for follow my footsteps. They decide to do something better for themselves.

Rosena left Haiti in 1992 when she was only 15.

“When I came here, my uncle said I could not say I was Haitian,” recalls Rosena. “Why should I change for anybody? America teaches you to be who you are.

While in high school, Rosena learned she could not get a job without documentation. She also discovered she would be deported if she didn’t have papers. She needed to know what exactly she needed and what the criminal charges would be, so I started volunteering around the police station, and after school she would go work with Catholic Charities.

“When I started with Catholic Charity, there were a lot of immigrants that were coming in. We had different lawyers come every day. I started as a translator and paid close to attention to everything the lawyers would say. I'm personally working with lawyers that say, "There's nothing for you.” When I looked at my fellow Haitians, I thought, “If you say there's nothing for them, why are you taking their money? I was mad.”

“I decided to look over the Haitian community's shoulder for a minute because there's a lot of parents that are suffering. If you have the experience, and you have the training, and know what to put together to take it to USCIS or take it to the judge, you can help people.

“The work I do in the immigrant community I do so I can see the smile, not only of the parents, but on the kids' faces,” says Rosena. “I say, ‘Do you know what's going on.’ They say, ‘Yes, we do. You're helping my parents to stay in the country.’

CUTV News Radio will feature Rosena Michel in an interview with Jim Masters on September 16th at 10am EDT

To support this rally, several rallies will be held on the same day in several cities around the world and before the UN Headquarters in New York and outside the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.”

— Tamil People's Council

COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, September 14, 2019 / —

Tamil areas of Sri Lanka in the North and Eastern provinces are going to shut down on Monday (16th) in support of a massive rally in Jaffna for the Tamil’s political demands.

Everything will shut down except hospitals. Rally organizers have urged restaurants and petrol stations to open to help rally participants to get food and petrol for the vehicles.

This rally is titled “Eluga Thamil”. People joining the rally will assemble in two points just outside the City and march to the esplanade for the massive rally, where several leaders will speak.

This rally is organized by Tamil People’s Council, a coalition of several Tamil political parties, civil society organizations, trade unions, University Students, Families of the Disappeared, Religious leaders, academics, war victim groups and others.

Former Northern Province Council Chief Minister Justice C.V. Wigneswaran is one of the three joint Presidents of the Tamil People’s Council. Other joint presidents are Dr. P. Lakshman and Mr. Vasantharajah.

To support this rally in Jaffna, several rallies will be held on the same day in several cities around the world and before the UN Headquarters in New York and outside the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

ஈழத்தமிழர் தேசத்தின் வலிமைக்கான வாயிலாக எழுகதமிழ் மாறுமா ?

எப்பொழுதும் எங்களுடைய பிரச்சனைகளை நாங்கள் எங்களுடைய உரிமைப் போராட்டத்தின் மூலம்தான் தீர்க்க முடியும்.

நாங்கள் எப்பொழுதுமே பரிதாப்பத்துக்குரியவர்களாக அலைவதனால், எங்களுடைய பிரச்சனகள் தீர்க்கப் போவதில்லை. பிரச்சனைகளை உரிமைப் போராட்டத்தின் மூலம்தான் தீர்க்க முடியும்.

PARIS, FRANCE, September 14, 2019 / —

'எப்போதுமே அப்பாவித்தனமாக மக்கள் இருப்பார்களானால், அடக்குமுறையாளர்கள் அவர்கள் மீது வன்முறையினை கட்டவிழ்த்து கொண்டே இருப்பார்கள்.

நாங்கள் எப்பொழுதுமே பரிதாப்பத்துக்குரியவர்களாக அலைவதனால், எல்லோருடைய பரிதாபத்தையும் இரக்கத்தையும் சம்பாதித்துக் கொண்டு இருப்போமே அன்றி, எங்களுடைய பிரச்சனைகளை தீர்க்கப் போவதில்லை.

எப்பொழுதும் எங்களுடைய பிரச்சனைகளை நாங்கள் எங்களுடைய உரிமைப் போராட்டத்தின் மூலம்தான் தீர்க்க முடியும்.

அடிக்க அடிக்க நாங்கள் ஓடிக்கொண்டிருந்தால் அடிப்பவனும் துரத்தி துரத்தி அடித்துக் கொண்டே; இருப்பான். திரும்ப அடிப்பதன் மூலமாகத்தான் எங்களுடைய நிலையினை பரிதாபத்தில் இருந்து நீக்கலாம்.

வலியவர்கள் வாழ்வார்கள் என்ற தத்துவம்தான் இந்த உலகத்தில் உள்ளது. வலிமையல்தான் எமது பிரச்சனைகளை தீர்த்துக் கொள்ள முடியும்.'

இது, 1983 கறுப்பு யுலையின் பட்டறிவு தனக்கு உணர்த்திய செய்தியென, விடுதலைப் புலிகளின் தலைவர் வே.பிரபாகரன் அவர்கள் நிதர்சனத்தின் வீடியோ மஞ்சரி ஒன்றில் அன்று தெரிவித்திருந்தார்.

இக்கருத்து இன்று மட்டுமல்ல என்றைக்குமே ஒடுக்கப்பட்ட அடக்கப்பட்ட மக்களின் உரிமைப் போராட்டத்துக்கான திசைவழிப்பாதையை தெளிவாகவே முன்வைக்கின்றது.

சமகாலத்தில், தமிழர் தாயகத்தில் மட்டுமல்ல புலம்பெயர் தேசங்களிலும், தமிழகத்திலும் எழுகதமிழ் ஓர் அசைவாக காணப்படுகின்ற நிலையில், மேற்சொன்ன கூற்று, பல்வேறு வகையிலும் எழுகதமிழுக்கு தெளிவான செய்தியினை எடுத்துரைத்து நிற்கின்றது.

எழுகதமிழ் முன்வைக்கின்ற கோரிக்கைகள் முதற்கொண்டு, அதனை முன்னெடுக்கின்ற தரப்பினர் வரை பல்வேறு வகையிலும் முன்னர் இல்லாதவாறு பல்வேறு எதிர்கேள்விகளை முன்வைத்து வருகின்றனர். இந்த எதிர்கேள்விகளுக்கு, எதிர்கருத்துகளுக்கு பின்னால் பல்வேறு உள்நோக்கங்கள் காணப்பட்டாலும், எழகதமிழில் உள்நோக்கம் என்பது, ஈழத்தமிழர் தேசத்தின் மக்கள் சக்தியின் திரட்சியாகவே இருக்க முடியும்.

இதனைத்தான் 1983 கறுப்பு யுலை பட்டறிவில் இருந்து தலைவர் வே.பிரபாகரன் குறிப்பிடுகின்றார். அதாவது வலியது உலகில் வாழும். பரிதாப்பத்துக்குரியவர்களாக 'கோரிக்கைகளுடன்' இலங்கைத்தீவுக்குள் மட்டுமல்ல, வெளியேயும் அலைந்து திரிவதனால், கடந்த பத்து ஆண்டுகளில் ஈழத்தமிழின இரக்கத்தையும், பரிதாபத்தையும் பெற்றுக் கொண்டதே அன்றி, தீர்வை அல்ல.

இலங்கைதீவுக்கு படையெடுக்கின்ற வெளிநாட்டு அரச பிரதிநிதிகளைச் சந்திக்கின்ற தமிழ் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு தலைவர் இரா.சம்பந்தன் அவர்கள், எமது நிலைப்பாட்டை சர்வதேச தரப்புக்களுடன் முறையிட்டிருக்கின்றோம் என பல தடவை குறிப்பிட்டிருக்கின்றார். இதுதான் புலம்பெயர் தேசங்களிலும் நடந்திருக்கின்றது. ஆனால் தமிழர்களின் கோரிக்கைகளை எதிர்பார்ப்பினை இரக்கத்தோடும், பரிவோடும் 'அவர்கள்' கேட்டார்கள் தமிழ்கூறும் நல்லுலகிற்கு கூறப்படும். ஆனால் முன்வைக்கப்பட்ட கோரிக்கைகளை, முறைப்பாடுகளில் காத்திரமான முறையில் சர்வதேச சக்திகளால் தீர்க்கப்பட்டுள்ளதா எனில் அது இல்லை என்பதாகவே இருக்கும். நல்லாட்சி அரசாங்கத்தினால் இரா.சம்பந்தன் ஏமாற்றப்பட்டுவிட்டார் என சமீபத்தில் பல ஊடகங்கள் தலைப்பிட்டிருந்தன. காரணம் நல்லாட்சி அரசாங்கத்தினை ஆட்சிகதிரையில் ஏற்ற விரும்பிய சர்வதேச சக்திகளுக்கு தமிழர்களின் வாக்குகளை பெற்றுக் கொடுத்த தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு, தமது எதிர்பாப்புகள் சர்வதேச தரப்புக்கள் ஊடாக நிறைவேற்றப்படும் என காத்திருந்தனர். ஆனால் எதுவே உருப்படியாக நடக்காத நிலையில்தான், தற்போது தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு தரப்பு தாம் சிறிலங்கா அரசாங்கத்தினால் மட்டுமல்ல, சர்வதேச சக்திகளாலும் ஏமாற்றப்பட்டுவிட்டதாக உணர்வாக பலரும் தமது சமீபத்திய செவ்விகளில் குறிப்பிடுகின்றனர்.

அவ்வாறெனில் மீண்டும் கோரிக்கைகளுடன்தானே, 'எழுகதழும்' இம்முறை அறைகூவப்படுகின்றது என யாரும் கேட்கலாம். கோரிக்கைகளின் வழி மக்களை திரட்டுவதற்கான ஒரு கருவியாக இருக்கின்றதே அன்றி, திரளுகின்ற மக்கள் சக்திதான் வலிமைதான் இங்கு முக்கியமானது. திரளுகின்ற மக்கள் சக்திதான் ஈழத்தமிழர் தேசத்தினது உரிமைப் போராட்டத்தின் உயிர்ப்பையும் விழிப்பையும் உலகிற்கு காட்டுகின்ற ஒன்றாக இருக்க வேண்டும்.

வலியவர்கள் வாழ்வார்கள் என்ற தத்துவம்தான் இந்த உலகத்தில் போக்கில், எவ்வாறு ஈழத்தமிழர்கள் தமது வலிமை பெற்று தமது பிரச்சனைகளை தீர்த்துக் கொள்ளவது ?

சிறிலங்காவின் அரசியலமைப்புக்கு உட்பட்ட தேர்தலில் பங்கெடுப்பதனாலும், மாகாண சபைகளை பிடிப்பதாலும், பராளுமன்ற பிரதிநிதித்துவங்களை பெறுவதாலும் ஈழத்தமிழினம் வலிமை பெற்றுவிடுமா ?

இவைகள் யாவுமே, தமிழர்கள் எதிர்பார்கின்ற நீதியினைiயும், அரசியல் இறைமையினையும் பெற்றுக் கொள்வதற்கான வலிமையினை தராது. முள்ளிவாய்க்காலின் பின்னராக தமிழர்களின் ஜனநாயகப் வழிப் போராட்டத்தில், தேர்தல் அரசியலே 'தமிழர்களின் அரசியல்' என்ற நிலை கட்டமைக்கப்படுகின்றது. ஆனால் தமிழர்களின் விடுதலைக்கான அரசியல் என்பது சிறிலங்காவின் தேர்தல் அரசியலுக்கு அப்பாற்பட்டதாகவே காணப்படுகின்றது.

அந்தவகையில், தேர்தல் அரசியலைக்கடந்து விடுதலைக்கான அரசியலுக்கான வலிமையினை, மக்கள் சக்தியின் வழியே கட்டமைப்பதானால்தான், ஈழத்தமிழர்களின் எதிர்பார்ப்புகளை இலங்கைத்தீவில் நிறைவேற்றிக் கொள்ள முடியும்.

இன்றைய இந்தியப் பெருங்கடல் புவிசார் அரசியலில் இலங்கைத்தீவின் கேந்திர முக்கியத்துவத்தினை, தமிழர் அரசியல் தரப்புக்கள் நன்குணர்ந்து தமது விடுதலைக்கான மூலோபாயங்களை வகுக்க வேண்டிய காலமிது. இந்தியா-மேற்குலகம், சீனா, சிறிலங்கா என முத்தரப்பு இலங்கைத்தீவினை சுற்றிய புவிசார் அரசியலில் தரப்புக்களாக இருக்கின்றார்களே அன்றி, தமிழர்கள் அல்ல. அன்று தமிழர்கள் இத்தில் ஒரு தரப்பாக மாறுவதற்குரிய வலிமையினை தமது ஆயுதப் போராட்ட வெற்றிகள் மூலம் அடைந்தார்கள். அதுவே சமாதான பேச்சுவார்த்தைகளில் தமிழர் தரப்பை ஒரு தரப்பாக ஏற்றுக் கொள்ள வைத்திருந்ததோடு, வலுச்சமநிலையினை தந்திருந்தது.

இவ்வாறெனில், ஆயுதப் போராட்டத்தை ஊக்குவிப்பதல்ல இக்கட்டுரையின் நோக்கம். மாறாக தமிழர்களை ஒரு தரப்பாக இச்சர்வதேச சக்திகள் எட்டுவதற்குதரிய வலிமையே இங்கு முக்கியமானது. அந்த வலிமையினை ஆயுதங்களால் மட்டுமல்ல, ஆயுதங்கள் அற்ற முறையிலும் அறிவு வலிமையினால், அரசியல் வலிமையினை எட்டமுடியும். இதற்கு ஓர் உதாரணமாக வற்றிக்கானை நோக்கலாம். அதற்கு ஆயுதம் தரித்த இராணுவம் இல்லை. ஆனால் அது உலகில் தனது வலிமையுள்ள ஒன்றாக இருக்கின்றது எனில் அது தன் மதக்கட்டமைப்பினை ஓர் ஆயுதமாக கையாளுகின்றது.

இதுபோவே இந்தியப் பெருங்கடல் புவிசார் அரசியலில் தமிழர்களும் தம்மை ஒரு தரப்பாக மாற்றுவதன் ஊடாகத்தான், எமது கோரிக்கைகளுக்கான தீர்வினை எட்டமுடியும். இதற்கான வலிமையினை, இலங்கைத்தீவில் தமிழர்களின் தாயகப் பகுதி அமைந்திருக்கின்ற கேந்திர முக்கியத்துவத்தினை, தமிழர்கள் தமது வலிமைக்கான முதலீமாக மாற்ற வேண்டும். அதாவது அரசியல் முதலீமாக மாற்ற வேண்டும். இதில் இருந்துதான் வலிமை கட்டமைக்கப்படும். இந்த வலிமைக்கான சக்தியே, மக்கள் திரட்சியாகும்.

கட்சிக்காக வேண்டாம், தெருக்காட்சிக்காக வேண்டாம் என்ற தேனிசை செல்லப்பாவின் எழுகதமிழ் பாடல் போல், எழுகதமிழ் என்பது ஒரு நாள் கூடிவிட்டு கலைகின்ற ஒரு கூட்டமாக அல்லாமல், ஈழத்தமிழர் தேசம் தனது வலிமையினை பெற்றுக் கொள்வதற்குரிய நல்லதொரு தொடக்கமாக மாற்ற வேண்டும். தாயக தமிழர்களும், புலம்பெயர் தமிழர்களும், தமிழக் தமிழர்களும் ஈழத்தமிழத் தேசத்தின் வலிமைக்குரிய மக்கள் சக்தியாக திரட்ட வேண்டும். திரளுகின்ற இந்த வலிமையினை அறிவு வலிமையாக அரசியல் வலிமையாக மாற்றுவதன் ஊடாக, இந்தியப் பெருங்கடல் புவிசார் அரசியலில் ஈழத்தமிழர்கள் ஒரு தரப்பாக மாற முடியும்.

இதுநோக்கிய தெளிவானதொரு நிகழ்ச்சி நிரலுடன் எழுகதமிழ் கட்டியங் கூறவேண்டும். இல்லாது போனால், தமிழர்கள் பரிதாப்பத்துக்குதரிய ஓர் இனமாக, கோரிக்கைகளுடன், உலகெங்கும் அலைந்து திரிந்து கொண்டு, பிறரது பரிதாபத்துக்கும், இரக்கத்துக்கும் உள்ளாவார்களே அன்றி, அவர்கள் தமக்கான தீர்வினை எட்டமுடியாது.
