Regime Has Brought No Change to the Tamils


Monument to Tamils slain by the Sri Lankan government in a Genocide that culminated in 2009, yet continues today.

The only change that has taken place is that the people have become more daring than at any time during the last six years to come forward and present their views.

(CHENNAI)  Please read the links below and see what change the new regime has brought to the Tamils in their Homeland. As a couple of TNA leaders gloat around, has it in any way brought any relief to the Tamils?  In the first link all Tamils in the North and the East are protesting against local investigations in War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. They have no faith in the local mechanism. They want an international investigation into war crimes. Please find out what the people have to say.

Why Prescription Opioids/Heroin death and addiction still rages in U.S. and Canada

And are our veterans in V.A. hospitals going to be made guinea pigs by a wolf dressed as a physician in a white lab coat? You decide.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Anyone dealing with the death or addiction of a loved one to prescription opioids – some leading to heroin – have heard comments made leading to the stigma of addiction.  “If only your child had played sports in high school.  They wouldn’t have become addicted to prescription drugs.”  In many cases that child did play sports and had an injury which was treated by a physician with prescription opioids.  “If only your family member had been shown more love, they wouldn’t be battling addiction — or you wouldn’t be battling grief.”  All the love in the world and all the activity to be filled in a day does not guarantee addiction will not come through your front door.  Don’t beat yourself up.  Beat up those responsible for this epidemic — and those ignoring this epidemic.

Grandparents raising their grandchildren leave trace sin their souls

Capture22Grandparents face a greater mental and physical wear, especially because they deal with difficult children from broken or troubled homes. Stress and fatigue related to work that originates responsibility are the main symptoms of the “slave grandmother” syndrome.

(MADRID)    A study entitled  The Generation of Transition; between Work and Retirement,  states that  thousands of  years ago, the family model “included not only a father and a mother who took care of good parenting; there was also a grandmother who helped them in this task.”

Grandparents  work  as  health,  guardians  and  teachers  of  their grandchildren. They allow many moms to be integrated into the labor market. Some families are going better, thanks to grandparents. And in  times  of  economic  instability,  these  gestures  are  more important.

Vykom: strategic nonviolent action against untouchability

The Vykom struggle was designed by Gandhi to eliminate untouchability by ‘converting’ the high caste Hindus ‘by sheer force of character and suffering’.

Robert J. Burrowes Global News Centre

(TASMANIA)  Why does nonviolent action work? And how good was Mohandas K. Gandhi as a nonviolent strategist? If you want high quality evidence in your search for answers to these two questions then I encourage you to read Professor Mary E. King’s latest book on the struggle against untouchability, unapproachability and unseeability in the south Indian village of Vykom during the 1920s. See ‘Gandhian Nonviolent Struggle and Untouchability in South India: The 1924–25 Vykom Satyagraha and the Mechanisms of Change’

History is not always considered instructive and yet the major achievements, and failures, of nonviolent activists throughout the twentieth and now twenty-first centuries can be better understood if we understand what happened at Vykom.
