(NAINAMO ISLAND)  She was slightly older than me, but we would have been in the same grade in United Church Sunday school class, which we both attended as children. Every worship day, I wore a proper suit and tie and clutched my white offering envelope in which a single Canadian dollar would help fill the coffers of what the United Church still calls its “Mission and Service Fund”. But Vicky Sepass wore a shabby grey uniform and had nothing to put in the plate on Sundays, for she herself was the offering.

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.

NY TImes: Sri Lanka’s Tamil minority grows impatient with just promises

(CHENNAI)  The New York Times article is one of the finest I have ever read from the Western media, and definitely from the Indian media which keeps the Indian public ignorant of all the inhuman crimes committed against the Tamils by the Sinhalese during the last 67 years. It is a good eye opener for most of the Westerner.

The SL army grabs Tamil lands and sets up security camps in which they run farms and bring in Sinhalese from the South to settle. The military sets up,hotels, golf courses, swimming pools for their own pleasure. The food in the hotels are supplied by the Military canteens and the soldiers sell their vegetables in the market. How do you expect the Tamil public to compete with these soldiers, whose overheads are zero?

While the Sinhalese good life goes on in the Tamil Homeland, the Tamils suffer from the pain of missing kith and kin and their lost lands. Every Tamil family has lost a member during the war, but they still insist they want their lands back. Manguladevi Rasamanikam, 60, who now lives in a more squalid area than the refugee camp she left earlier said simply: “This is our land.”

Violence Against Women: why we keep getting it wrong

If some of the people with whom we interact are particularly scared when people disagree with them, then they will tend to be more forthright in seeking our ‘agreement’ (especially, perhaps, in particular contexts).

(TASMANIA)   With the passing of another International Women’s Day, during which much attention around the world has again been focused on tackling violence against women, I would like to explain why none of the initiatives currently being proposed will achieve anything unless we acknowledge, and act on, the cause of this violence.

So let me briefly explain the fundamental cause of violence in our world, including the cause of violence against women, and invite you to do something very personal and effective about it.

Perpetrators of violence learn their craft in childhood. If you inflict violence on a child, it learns to inflict violence on others. The terrorist suffered violence as a child. The individual who perpetrates violence in the home, in the schoolyard or on the street suffered violence as a child. The man who inflicts violence on women suffered violence as a child.

(LAHORE)  On 9 March, 2015, Ilyas Masih, father of two gang-raped underage Catholic girls, came to meet Sardar Mushtaq Gill, Human Rights Defender and High Court Advocate for free legal assistance to challenge the grant of bail that saw two rapists set free and for trial of the two cases.    The meeting transpired after British Pakistani Christian Association Chairman, Wilson Chowdhry, approached Sardar Mushtaq Gill, Human Rights Defender and Chief of the Legal Evangelical Development Association (LEAD) on behalf of two Christian under age girls. Mr Chowdhry expressed his desire to push for justice for the girls who were beaten, spat upon and had their faith mocked during one of the most brutal rape ordeals in Pakistan (click here).
