More than 500 Tamil demonstrators tried to march to the site of a destroyed Hindu temple at Kanniyaa in the Trincomalee district of Sri Lanka on July 16.
From Darwin to Hobart, Sydney to Perth and all points in between, thousands of people marched in rallies across Australia on May 1 to stop the Western Australian government closing 150 remote Aboriginal communities. Rallies were also held overseas in the US, Germany, New Zealand, China, Canada and Britain. This is the second international day of action. Previous rallies were held around Australia on April 10.
