Over 10,000 British Tamils, Parliamentarians and well-wishers gathered at Parliament Square on Tuesday 18 May 2010 between 4pm to 8pm to observe remembrance for the tragic loss of nearly 40,000 Tamil lives lost during the Tamil Tigers Terrorist activities in Sri Lanka for last 30 years. In bleak contrast to the 72-day parliament protests last year, this gathering was far more sombre, recalling the atrocities that could not be averted by the international community and reflection on the sufferings of their kith and kin in under LTTE in Sri Lanka. Gathered with their loved ones, young and old, the crowds adorned in black, paid their respects by laying flowers on a mock tomb below the statue of Sir Winston Churchill. The memorial event was well attended by UK cross-party MPs, councillors and community representatives.
