Sunday more people began to gather in Parliament Square, and Monday the numbers had swelled and from 9.30 am people began blocking again the roads around Parliament, the only way for them to get attention to the genocide in their homeland and the UK politicians to intervene with the UN.
It is feared that the Sri Lankan government are determined to kill all of the civilians trapped in the so- called ' safe zone' in the Vanni region by the end of the month, more than 150.000 people are living under bombardments and have no way to get out and no access to food or medication, as the Sri Lankan army has sealed off the zone. The few who have managed to escape to government controlled areas have been put in concentration camps by the SLA.
At the end of the day, 63 protesters had been arrested, including a group of school girls and an elderly couple; most were later charged with obstruction of the highway.
The protest in Parliament against the genocide of the Tamils continues, 24/7: please go and support!
*note: Information from 'independent' sources is lacking, since all journalists and aid workers have been kicked out the killing area by the Sri Lankan government... according to the corporate media the dead are only a few hundred in the last 48 hours; since BBC & Co have no family in the area, where do they get their numbers from? Besides, there are reports from the ground from medical personnel who talk of thousands killed by bombing - see below.
