Help Save Innocent Civilians From Ruthless LTTE Terrorists

As our brave soldiers in Sri Lanka fight the final battles to save our Motherland from clutches of terrorism, and our innocent Tamil brothers and sisters are held hostage by the ruthless LTTE terrorists, it is time for us to join together to stand, and urge the US to pressurize the LTTE to release the innocent civilians.

The pro-LTTE diaspora is planning a rally to spread their malicious false propaganda about 'genocide', and will be gathering in large numbers. This is the last time we can show our strength against the LTTE, before the entire region now held by the LTTE is liberated by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces.

If ever there was a chance of showing your gratitude to the brave brothers and sisters fighting to protect our Motherland, this is it! Join us in a peaceful rally to urge the US authorities to pressurize the LTTE to release the innocent Tamil civilian hostages, and to stand up against the scourge of terrorism that has plagued our Motherland for decades.

Please bring a Sri Lankan national flag with you, and invite your friends - non-Sri Lankans too! Signs, placards, banners and distribution material will be provided at the venue. Please bring snacks for yourselves.
