Mapping Resistance
Tamil Diaspora Protests

We dedicate this page to the Tamil diaspora who took to the streets all over the world in 2009 to re-direct international attention onto the atrocities taking place in Mullivaikkal.

In the face of the massacres taking place in the Tamil homeland, the diaspora prove to be a force of resistance. They resisted narratives that downplayed the scale of the atrocities. They resisted the hostility of their host countries. Amidst the grief and horror of genocide, they resisted.

We hope that this ongoing archive will serve as a way to honour the continued resilience of the diaspora.

Please use this form to help us build an archive of the global Tamil protests.
