Paris, 28 July, ( More than thousand Sri Lankans and their French friends gathered at Trocadero, the most significant landmark of Paris under the footsteps of Eiffle Tower to protest against terrorist attacks unleashed by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The demonstrators, carrying photographs of the victims of the most brutal killings of innocent civilians by the Tamil Tigers urged the French and European Union to immediately ban the front organizations LTTE such as WTM, ORT (TRO of France), Tamil Sangham and other Tamil Eelam associations.

They urged the French President Sarkosy, who is the current President of the European Union to take effective actions to stop ransom collections, money laundering, intimidation and harassment of innocent Tamils in France by the LTTE and its Mafia Gangs like Miinel, VVT Boys and Pambu.

The demonstration was organized jointly by United Sri Lankans comprising && Sri Lankan associations and several political party branches in France. A large number of second generation Sri Lankans under a banner of Sri Lankan Youths in France were the most vociferous amongst the demonstrators. The JVP supporters were conspicuous by their absence.

The demonstrators distributed leaflets describing the true terror nature of the LTTE to thousands of French nationals and tourists from all over the globe visiting the magnificent Parisian destination, the Eiffle Tower.
