'Tamil Tigers, Sri Lanka, Toronto Protests'
Personally, I don't condone that they "distrupted" highway traffic or that they brought/used their children to bring about media attention, however, I do appreciate that they brought to light the war in Sri Lanka to the Canadian masses. I knew of, but very little about the situation as a whole & though I may not agree with how they went about it, I am glad to be more informed, which I do believe was their intent.
Here's a CBCnews.ca account of the story.
The National's broadcast from May 11 (Starts about a minute into it). In particular an interview with Melanie Brooks, a Canadian in the CARE camps for the displaced people in Northern Sri Lanka (4:35 into it).
Searching around the net, I found a couple of informative links from the Tamil's perspective:
*Stop Sri Lanka State Terrorism
