Stop the Genocide in Sril Lanka - London April 11 2009

Stop the War supported the protest calling for an immediate ceasefire in Sri Lanka.
Over 200,000 people marched against the killing of civilians by the Sri Lankan armed forces and in support of the right of the Tamil people to self determination.
Report on Tamilnet:
"In a historic show of solidarity, more than 200,000 British Tamils, nearly two thirds of Tamils resident in Britain, marched through the streets of London Saturday demanding immediate ceasefire and recognition of Tamil Eelam. Sparked off by the initiative of second generation diaspora Tamil youth and students four days earlier, the Saturday's march became an unprecedented rallying point for the entire community, attracting the old students associations of the educational institutions of Eezham Tamils, functioning in London. The spirited participation of teens and mothers with babies in pushchairs significantly marked the level of community involvement in the agitation. "
