On July 3rd to 5th, We went to the Tamil Convention, FeTNA in Connecticut. It was awesome. Everyone who gave a speech mentioned about the 'Tamil Eelam' problem in Sri Lanka. Tamilians speaking about saving Tamilians is a known fact. It was a slap on my face only when Americans spoke about this problem. To my surprise, they are 'requesting' us to "Boycott" just by selling $1 Bumper Stickers , $10 T-Shirts and free post cards for this process.
The speeches were given by,
Dr. Francis Boyle,
Dr. Adele Barker and
Dr. Ellyn Shander.
The following link leads to their speeches.
I was ashamed. When they can do that, I wanted to do something. So I thought of spreading a word about this. That word is "Boycott". It's enough for us to stop buying the products 'Made from Sri Lanka'. I don't think that's difficult or is it?.
If you are living in USA, you must have come across the following stores:
- VICTORIA'S SECRET
- Abercrombie & Fitch
- AMERICAN EAGLE
- BANANA REPULIC
- LiZ claiborne
- Limited Brands
While you are shopping in those stores kindly look for the label. If it read, 'Made in Sri Lanka' please choose another one.
I believe that one step can lead to another. We can save our people.
