Latin Americans in Canada support Tamil Refugees

(Tuesday, 17 August 2010| Author: Hassan Reyes)We, the undersigned, in the Latin American community in Canada declare our support for our Tamil sisters and brothers ,and the estimated 400-500 Tamil asylum seekers aboard the MV Sun Sea, which include more than 100 women and children. Canadian media and public officials are perpetuating politically motivated stereotyping by classifying these refugees as terrorists. These unfounded statements are based on already discredited sources close to the genocidal Sri Lankan government. We believe this to be a racist and xenophobic discourse that signals the predisposition and historical tendency of our government to deny the human and legal rights of these people.
