Fast unto last breathe - Day 13

19-04-2009 20:46

28-year-old Parameswarn Subramaniyan from Mitcham is not in good health as day 13 of his hunger strike comes to a close. He started off without any water and this seems to have done its damage although he does consume water now.
Lots of other youth are joining him tomorrow in mass hunger strikes.

The demands are as follows

The demands put forward by Parameswaran follow:

* Immediate and permanent ceasefire

* Food and medical aid should be allowed to reach the civilians immediately with international monitoring committees and allow “Mercy Mission to Vanni”

* UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, arrange to meet our representatives.

* Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam are our sole representatives and UK government should lift the ban on LTTE.

* UN should call for an immediate referendum to the Tamils regarding whether they want separate nation or to remain as Sri Lanka.
