Thousands of Tamils take to streets of Toronto to protest against SL offensive

TORONTO: Thousands of Canadian Tamils took to the streets of downtown Toronto
on Friday (January 30), protesting the Sri Lankan government's offensive
against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
The protesters gathered outside Toronto's Union Station and formed a
human chain through the downtown area. More than 200,000 Tamils live in the
greater Toronto area, one of the largest populations outside Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka's army has surrounded the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam
(LTTE) in a 300 sq km (115 sq mile) slice of jungle in the Indian Ocean
island's northeast, aiming to end a war that started in 1983 and is one of
Asia's longest-running conflicts.
On Friday, the government said there would be no ceasefire with the
separatist guerrillas. But the LTTE said that only an internationally-brokered
ceasefire would resolve the conflict.
