PhotoTO: The Tamil Chain

A river of red flags flowed through the downtown core yesterday as thousands of Tamils lined the streets to protest the latest Sri Lankan government offensive in the long-running conflict with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, claiming that thousands of civilians had been killed, injured, or forcibly relocated. After forming a human chain along the streets for much of the afternoon, the well-organized demonstration gathered at Union Station where police closed part of Front Street.
