Socialist Aotearoa comrade has tossed in his hunger strike in support of Sri Lanka’s Tamil rebels after only six days.
Surely if you could stomach the Tamil Tiger’s suicide bombings, mass murders, press gangings and terrorism, you could handle more than six days without your Milo and Weetbix?
Auckland university student Stu Colquhoun today finished his hunger strike in support of Tamils being attacked by the Sri Lankan military. The hunger strike which went for six days was to draw attention to the huge loss of civilian life in the recent conflict between the Sri Lankan Military and the LTTE. Stu and the Tamil Supporters group which was recently formed at Auckland University are calling for open access for aid agencys to the conflict zone and immediate action by the New Zealand government to support those harmed in recent fighting.
TV Three interviewed Stu this afternoon and around 30 people turned out to show their support for the Tamil people. As well as students Green MP Keith Locke and Unionist John Minto were present and spoke of the silence of the New Zealand government in the face of huge civilian causalities.
Inevitably Green MP Keith Locke was there-proving once again he never met a terrorist supporter he didn’t like.
Shame on you Keithie.
