Demonstration against LTTE activities and fund raising in Netherlands

More than 350 vocal protestors , both the Sinhalese and the Tamils, strongly demanded that Prabhakarn should down his arms and give in to the Sri Lanka Army and the Nederlands should immediately put an end to the fund raising of the LTTE in the Hague that increases the agony of the Tamils in the Mullaittivu and Kilinochchi Districts who are subjected to the worst civil rights violations in the world.
"Fund raising in the Hague helps LTTE to sprint one of the worst Fascist organisation in the modern world that keeps an army of child soldiers kidnapped from their homes and schools, well recorded by the United Nations," one of the protestors said.
Many placards written in Dutch said the funds from Nederlands help Prabhakaran run one of the most dangerous radical groups in the world as described by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) in the United States.
"Expatriates of Sri Lanka, living in The Netherlands and other European cities gathered in front of the Parliament of The Netherlands in The Hague on 11th October 2008 to protest against terrorism in general and the LibeSri Lankans belonging to all communities ration Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)'s killing against humanity in particular. The expression was preceded by a Peace March towards the Parliament," a statement issued by the organizers said.
This was the first time an anti- LTTE demonstration was held in the Nederlands although the European organizers of the terrorist group has made the country's capital, the Hague a hub for their fund raising activities. Demonstrators alleged the money are being raised for the most anti-human rights behavior in Sri Lanka under bogus human rights organizations in the Hague. They alleged the funds are then taken across limits to France, the United Kingdom and Canada to be smuggled out to banks to weapons for terrorist behavior.
The organizers supposed in the statement: "At the end of the demonstration, a memorandum on the objectives of the event namely to highlight the increasing LTTE killings of blameless people in Sri Lanka, to ask for the Dutch authorities' solidarity towards the Peace efforts of the Government of Sri Lanka and to totally ban all LTTE activities in The Netherlands, was submitted to the government authorities. Copies of the memorandum were also sent to the Prime Minister and other political personalities."
