London students mark Maaveerar Naal

Student commemorations of Maaveerar Naal were held at the University College London, led by Tamil Youth Organisation UK last Wednesday.

The event included the traditional Maaveerar Naal rituals of lighting the sacrificial lamp and playing the Thuyilum illam song.

The traditional Maaveerar Naal rituals were followed by a discussion with panellists including the investigative journalist and researcher Phil Miller; editor of Oru Paper, Gopi Ratnam; Brahmi Jegan, founder of the Tamil Survival Stories project; Mr P. Sathyaseelan, founder of the 1970 Student Movement; and activist and survivor of Mullivaikkaal, Ms Thamilvany.
