Tamil Solidarity Day - building unity to fight oppression

Isai Priya, Tamil Solidarity

Tamil Solidarity is holding its annual "Solidarity Day" with Day-Mer, Turkish and Kurdish Community, on 6 September.

All who stand for the rights of Tamil-speaking people, opposition to continuing repression in Sri Lanka by the Rajapaksa regime and for international workers' solidarity, are urged to participate in this very important initiative.

Various campaigners and activists, including leading trade unionists, Youth Fight for Jobs and Rape is No Joke, will be attending.

As well as being a forum for political debate and discussion, there will also be entertainment, with music and dance from Tamil, Turkish and Kurdish communities. Traditional Tamil food will also be provided.

A 'rally for solidarity' will also take place with speakers from trade unions and campaigners including NUT executive member Martin Powell-Davies, Unite Housing 1111 branch chair Paul Kershaw, and Socialist Party deputy general secretary Hannah Sell.

Tamil Solidarity Day is a day to build bridges between different communities and their struggles. Bringing these communities together and understanding each other struggles is essential to build a united fight and win the rights of all.

Tamil Solidarity stands for all those oppressed by dictatorial regimes and capitalism, and it's the only organisation within Tamil communities that links up the Tamil people's struggle with the working class movement and other struggles.

Though it's at early stage, Solidarity Day is beginning to attract significant sections of the Tamil community and we need all the support that we can get from everyone to make this even more successful.

Confirm your attendance now by mailing to info@tmailsolidarity.org or visit www.tamilsolidarity.org and click on "Solidarity Day" for more details.
