A worldwide coalition of Tamil youth organisations, Global Tamil Youth League (T-League), pledged to continue the struggle against the genocide faced by the Tamil nation and work towards a political solution that was based on the Tamil nation’s right to self-determination, at its second annual conference held on the 7th – 8th April.
In a resolution unanimously adopted by all of the coalition’s member organisations, T-League called for ‘the establishment of an independent, international mechanism to ensure truth, accountability and justice‘, and pledged to work ‘to achieve a political solution that recognises the uncompromising, fundamental principles of the Tamil freedom struggle‘, ‘to raise awareness about the ongoing multi-faceted genocide unleashed on the Tamil people by the Sri Lankan state’ and ‘to promote the identity of the Tamil nation‘.

GTYL Conference calls for international mechanism to secure justice for Tamils
The second annual conference of the Global Tamil Youth League held on 7th and 8th April in the UK passed resolutions calling for an independent, international accountability mechanism into war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the Sri Lankan state and to advocate against the genocide of the Eezham Tamil nation. Emphasising that Tamil sovereignty is the only meaningful expression of self-determination for the Tamil nation in their historic homeland and the only guarantee against genocide, Krisna Saravanamuttu of the NCCT, a participant in the conference, told TamilNet “At a time when powers are trying to manipulate the diaspora to arrive at a settlement within a unitary Sri Lanka, the Tamil Sovereignty Cognition declaration provides a principled ideological and conceptual reference point for Eezham Tamil youth across the world in our struggle for national liberation.”
