Tamils Take Over Gardiner Expressway, Demand End to Genocide

Thousands of protesters, Tamil and non-Tamil, have taken over the Gardiner Expressway to protest Canada's silence over the massacre of Tamils by the Sri Lankan government.

The surprise action of protesters in Toronto on Sunday afternoon overwhelmed the police, who were unable to stop the crowd from engaging in peaceful civil disobedience.

From the night of Saturday, May 9 to Monday May 11, over 6500 innocent Tamil civilians have been killed by the relentless barrage of shelling by the Sri Lankan Army.
