Burning Sri Lankan flag at Eelam Tamil protest in London during Black July 1983 when there was a Sinhalese led anti-Tamil Pogrom, riot and massacre in Sri Lanka. It marked the beginning of the Sri Lankan Civil War between Tamil militants and the Government in Sri Lanka. Over 3,000 Tamils were murdered and over 150.000 people made homeless. Many Tamils fled to other countries forming Tamil diaspora communities.
