நிறைய நண்பர்கள் இப்படி மின்னஞ்சல் அனுப்புவதால் எதையாவது சாதிக்க முடியுமா என கேட்கிறார்கள். அவர்களிடம் நான் கேட்பது...

மின்னஞ்சல் அனுப்பாமல் இருப்பதால் எதையாவது சாதிக்க முடியுமா ?

இந்த மின்னஞ்சல் அனுப்புவதை தவிர நம்மைப் போன்ற சாமானியர்களால் ஏதேனும் செய்ய முடியுமா ?
முடியாது . நம்மால் செய்யக்கூடியது இது மட்டுமே.

எனவே நம்மால் செய்யக்கூடியதை செய்வோம்.

Dear [Official's Title and Name will be inserted here]:

I am writing to you today to urge you not to support a resolution being presented by Sri Lanka at the Human Rights Council emergency session on May 26, 2009 in Geneva. This resolution calls for member nations not to interfere in Sri Lanka's internal affairs, and appeals to member states to drop war crimes charges made against the Sri Lankan government. Sri Lanka is essentially asking that it receive aid that will supposedly be used for recovery efforts without conditions, and without being held accountable for its human rights abuses.

Human Rights organizations have hailed Tuesday's session of the Human Rights council as an opportunity to address the humanitarian crisis and hold the Government of Sri Lanka accountable for its actions. Sam Zafiri, Asia Pacific Director for Amnesty International said, "For the sake of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in Sri Lanka, as well as its own credibility, the Human Rights Council should ensure that the Sri Lankan government takes immediate and concrete steps to address this crisis, beginning with providing immediate, unhindered access to international aid workers and monitors." Zafiri added that this session is an "opportunity to establish an international commission of inquiry to address the long history of human rights violations by the government." Amnesty International has issued its own statement demanding that the UN "call for the establishment of an effective UN human rights monitoring mission," and begin an investigation into Sri Lanka's long history of human rights abuses.

Human Rights Watch declared that the session on Tuesday must address "protection of internally displaced persons and their fundamental rights to liberty and freedom of movement," along with similar demands for allowing international aid organizations, international media, and human rights monitors. Although the issue of the "Sri Lankan government's indiscriminate shelling of densely populated areas, including hospitals" must be addressed, it is important to note that the Government's human rights abuses extend beyond recent events in Sri Lanka, which is why it is imperative that an impartial investigation be initiated after Tuesday's session.

The Inner City Press, an independent new source that focuses mainly on the United Nations claimed, "Sri Lanka, even to some NGOs, is the past. This is called victor's justice, in this case obscenely blessed by the UN for its convenience and purported relevance." I urge you not to allow these words of criticism become words of truth. Sri Lanka and its people have seen and end to its 25-year long civil war, but it is far from seeing an end to the conflict. The time for the international community to step in and ensure the safety of the refugees, and the accountability of the government is now. For too long, the government of Sri Lanka has claimed sovereignty as a legitimate reason to prevent international intervention. But there comes a time when humanity transcends sovereignty, and it becomes the responsibility of bodies such as the United Nations to intervene for the sake of those suffering.

Subject of the Mail : Sri Lanka's war crimes & Crimes against humanity


To Your Excellency,

We are asking you to NOT let the Sri Lankan government bury their human rights abuses and war crimes in the conflict against the Tamil people. Just as they are digging mass graves and bulldozing the evidence of war crimes in the North of Sri lanka, they are trying to fool the international community that they have done nothing wrong and should be entitled to international aid for the Tamil civilians. This is horrifying. Please, stop this nightmare. The GOSL must stand up to charges of war crimes. They must NOT be entrusted with aid to the Tamil civilians. We are begging you to make sure the aid gets to the agencies delivering the aid directly and not through the corrupt and deceitful murderous regime of Rajapaksa as head of the GOSL.
The long ethnic civil war may be over, has ended, but the crisis for Tamil civilians continues.

  • 300,000 Tamil civilians traumatized and confined to GOSL internment camps. UN MUST MONITOR IMMEDIATELY
  • 25,000 Tamil civilian casualties in last week of war.
  • No access to conflict area by humanitarian workers & journalists.
  • Disappearances during the screening process, inhumane treatment of civilians, separation of families. POW’S MUST HAVE UN ACCESS
  • IN DETENTION: three government employe doctors, held by the Terrorist Investigation Division in Colombo as a result of their eyewitness reports to the media and the international community from hospitals and makeshift medical centers inside the conflict zone To.Gosl: RELEASE THEM IMMEDIATELY
  • Internment camps guarded by military and paramilitaries with disappearances, rapes, starvation deaths and no freedom of movement, UN MUST TAKE OVER.CAMPS
  • Tamil children as young as 12 are abducted from camps by pro govt paramilitaries, reported by Coalition to Stop Child Soldiers. ( incl. Amnesty Int, HRW)
  • 14 international aid agencies, including Oxfam and Save the Children, warned yesterday that thousands of lives were at risk because aid workers and their vehicles were not being given enough access to the camps. GOSL refusing access to ICRC and UN to camps
Crimes against humanity and war crimes:
  • Deaths of more than 8,000 Tamil civilians by Sri Lankan armed forces (SLA).
  • UN High Commissioner for Human Rights & the EU have called for a commission of inquiry into war crimes committed by SLA
  • Incessant shelling & bombing of civilians, including hospitals, for months by SLA.
  • Used cluster & white phosphorus bombs, mustard gas in areas of high civilian concentration.
  • Denial of food & medicine as weapons of war by SLA.
  • Killing of thousands of surrendered combatants and civil administrators by SLA.
  • Disappearances & torture of civilians .by SLA
DEFEAT THE Sri Lankan draft resolution stating the "principle of non-interference" in internal matters. Demand transparency! Do not give aid or comfort to this murderous regime!

“If world opinion is to consider state frontiers sacrosanct then there will be no chance for world progress as a whole; tyranny would have received a world charter." Shri Rajagopalachari, the First Governor General of India.
