Tamils from Sri Lanka appealed to Secretary Clinton to stop the war in 2009 as soon as the Obama’s new administration took the power in 2009. The war ended with large scale killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government forces.
After the war, the Sri Lankan government continued killing, raping, torturing and disappearing Tamils. Ms. Clinton wanted consult a Tamil Leader. She went to Chennai, India to meet Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister Ms. Jayalalithaa. After Chennai visit, Ms. Clinton brought a resolution at UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), that called for “credible and impartial international investigation.” Secretary Clinton gave two chances to Sri Lanka to do credible and impartial investigation. When Sri Lankan failed to obey the resolution in 2012 and 2013, in 2014 Ms. Clinton helped bring a UN Resolution to investigate allegations of war crimes during the final months of Sri Lanka’s civil war.
Now Tamils support Ms. Clinton for the US president to get justice and freedom for Tamils. After the war, Sinhalese treats the Tamils as their slaves. Only Clinton’s leadership can bring safe and secure life for Tamils in north-east of that island.
In this election trustworthy is an issue. People can spin Clinton’s work as they wish to, but Clinton is a trustworthy leader for Tamils and tried her best to save the Tamils. She acted like an effective leader to learn the problem and finding a solution through UNHRC for Tamils. She was able bring many countries to support UNHRC resolution against Sri Lankan war crimes. It shows her as an effective leader.
Email issue is not a deciding factor. Bush and Cheney administration made two to three million emails disappeared. During their time many Americans were killed due to Iraq war. These missing two to three million emails were swept under the carpet. Ms. Clinton acknowledge that she made mistakes of having a personnel server.
So let’s move on and elect this first women leader. Tamils for Clinton is guaranteeing that with Hilary Clinton’s experience as Secretary of State, we all will benefit from her being as our next president.
Ms. Clinton went through lot of test, it makes her as a strong, trustworthy, effective and a team leader.
Tamils for Clinton is a political activist group comprised of Americans with the majority being Tamil Americans. They believe that over 145,000 Tamil civilians living in Sri Lanka were massacred during the last weeks of the Sri Lankan ethnic war. They have also observed post war behaviors of the Sri Lankan Singhalese victors, and concluded that Tamils in Sri Lanka will only be safe when this war torn island is divided into two individual self-governing nations.
It is of interest to note that according to UN Internal Review Report on Sri Lanka, around 70,000 Tamil civilians may have been massacred in the last six months of the ethnic war. Also, Catholic Diocese, Rt. Rev. Dr. Rayappu Joseph, the Bishop of Mannar in Sri Lanka gave a presentation to the Sri Lankan Lessons Learnt & Reconciliation Commission, exposing to the world that over 146,679 Tamil civilians in the area of Vanni were not accounted for in post-war Sri Lanka.
