I partly agree with you they should have the right to remember the dead. But why are they hoisting up LTTE flags in front of army fellows? you realise many of the soldiers would have lost friends or family as well. Wasn't very smart.
The UNHRC resolution agreed to withdrawal of Sinhala occupied forces from Tamil Eelam even your LLRC also accepted.The Tamil Eelam national flag is not LTTE flag.

They not take any weapons against Sinhala occupied forces even they have rights to fight against them.The Tamil Eelam national flag is not LTTE flag.They have rights to remember their relatives massacred by Sinhala genocidal forces.They stick the posters
it is democratic rights of students.
They didn't take weapons that true, but they did throw rocks (apparently).

They have a right to demand fair treatment, equaility, justice and restitution. But demanding an independent homeland or celebrating LTTE soldiers is the same as being a Tamil Tiger.

Did these students protest against the LTTE when child soldiers were being killed or when human shields were being used? no they didn't. They only want to cause trouble with the govt.

It is poitless and stupid to go up against the govt so soon after the LTTE defeat. Surely you can see that?

LTTE flag and Eelam flag are practically the same, a tiger in the middle with rifles either side of it. There is no difference in reality.

And the LLRC has agreed to a lesser military presence, not withdrawal of troops. But after this student rally I don't think the military will be leaving any time soon

The Sinhalese & Tamils are distinct ethnic group & They have separated region since ancient Time.The culture,language & living styles also totally difference.The Tamils were fighting for fair treatment, equality, justice and restitution since after British abandoned the Ceylon but they couldn't achieve the rights.Then they decided & created decision " vaddukoddairesolution.com ".The british colonizer had unified the Tamil Eelam(Tamil Kingdom) with Sri Lanka(Sinhala Kingdom) at 1833 for administration purpose.So the Tamils now fighting against unification with Sri Lanka.

So fight the british then, don't fight Sri Lanka.

By the way, the British deny that the country was split into two states. They have always denied that. The Portuguese or Dutch created the division along elephant pass. They referred to the North East as a malabar region, which means it was inhabited by malabar migrants from South West India.

Anyway, its all redundant now. Sri Lanka is a sovereign nation as it always has been. I don't think its a good idea to give any federal solution or devolution of power as this will only give Tamils hope of a future eelam.

There will never be Eelam in Sri Lanka. If you want a mono-ethnic homeland then go to Nadu. If you want to remain Sri Lankan then stay in the north east and forget about fighting for seperacy

I disagree. Seperatism will forever be linked with the LTTE. What you forget is many Tamils never supported seperatism. Of course their opposition to LTTE was dampened by the armies behaviour toward civilians. Non-violent struggle for truth and reconciliation is more constructive than futile argueing for seperate state. They will never get a seperate state or even a federal/regional government. Why fight? jsut learn from mistakes and act strategically to help your families.

The time for this has ended Shoba. You backed the LTTE they lost. They will never rise again. The Vaddukodai resolution made sense back in 1976 but not now. It's like people in Maldives claiming the maldivians were originally buddhist/Hindu. It's irrelevant now

Well said Elias, I have new found respect for you! If you are genuine in your comments that is.

I for one, believe in a power devolution of some sort. Where fellow Tamils are in charge of Tamil affairs in N & E, under a unitary lankan flag. The behavior of Tamils is futile, TGTE etc.. will never be fruitful.

Tamil nadu politicos and the idiot Nadu people are the biggest enemy of Lankan Tamils today. No one dispute Tamils have been in the country for centuries, that is besides the fact.

The problem the Tamils face today is that they done have a genuine, humble leader to lead the Tamil people forward.

If UNO hold referendum like S.Sudan among Tamils we can verify the Tamils aspiration.

No one dispute Sihalese have been in the country for centuries immigrated from Orissa, that is besides the fact. So Tamils accept Sri Lanka.Sinhalese should accept Tamil Eelam.Because unfortunately Sinhalese have recognised sovereignty power now.Otherwise UNO should recognise Tamil Eelam like Palastine.

The freedom fighting never fails Elias.The Tamils of Tamil Eelam want their RIGHTS, not benefits or devolopments.But now The Tamils faced genocide by Sinhala forces,If impartial investigation conducted by international community Tamil can get justice.

Referendums in S.Sudan, Timor and Kosovo were only possible because of permission given by northern Sudan, Indonesia and Serbia. The Sri Lankan government will never hold such referendums in the north of Sri Lanka.
