Tamil Genocide Remembrance Month 2021

May is Tamil Genocide Remembrance Month. Throughout the month of May, Tamil Civic Action will be hosting multiple events and initiatives to bring awareness to the Tamil Genocide.

We are united in our pursuit for justice and freedom.

Our work continues. Join the movement today.

Images of Resistance

Located under the Gardiner Expressway, at Fort York Visitors Centre. We are extremely proud to share with you the launch of Images of Resistance Physical and Virtual Exhibit!

Our physical and virtual Images of Resistance Exhibit reflects on the 2008-2009 intergenerational demonstrations that mobilized Toronto’s Tamil community; a scale of which Toronto had never seen before or since. You can check it out at Imagesofresistance.com

They’re our stories of resistance… let us control the narratives.
Please reach out to us if you want to support our exhibit!
