About 100 Tamils marked the 2009 Mullivaikkal massacre and demanded an end to the military occupation of Tamil land in the north and east of the island of Sri Lanka on May 15.

After hearing from several speakers outside the State Library, they took their message into the Melbourne Central shopping centre.
