Top Temp: 16C Tamils' park event sparks controversy From Page 1 He has been linked to the as- sassination of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. In the park, the Australian flag was displayed on stage beside the Tiger symbol and a huge picture of Prabhakaran. The resident said the words Pongku Thamizh ''strictly mean an occasion to take pride in being a Tamil but it has been hijacked by terrorist supporters and has become an occasion to drum up support for the militar- istic aims of the LTTE, and the raising of funds for the LTTE's war chest under the guise of celebrating the Tamil culture''. ''The LTTE front organis- ations are known for resorting to various schemes to circum- vent Australian laws, and make it appear they are engaged in normal community activities.'' Before the event, several people raised concerns and ap- pealed to Strathfield Council to review applications for permits to use council facilities. Strathfield Council released a letter to concerned residents on the Friday before, saying the event had been cancelled. But a council spokesman said this week the council had in- itially closed the park for the weekend due to wet weather but the weather improved and it was re-opened. The resident said: ''Council workers were seen busy on Sunday providing assistance to set up stages, generators and to erect Prabhakaran's image at Mason Park.'' The council spokesman told the Inner-West Weekly the Tamil Civic Centre had organised the event and the council's only concern was that about 2000 people turned up instead of the 250 to 500 estimated by the Tamil Civic Centre. ''Events that involve over 500 people require organisers to apply for a large event hire so council can formulate a traffic plan, organise waste manage- ment and inform residents of the event,'' he said. ''Unfortunately, none of this occurred due to the under- estimation of attendees by the Tamil Civic Centre.'' Attempts to contact the Tamil Civic Centre were unsuccessful.
