New member to the National Council
We are delighted to welcome Sockalingam Yogalingam to the party’s ruling National Council. ‘Yogi’ is committed to the cause of self-determination and human rights and was one of the NLP’s London candidates in the recent European elections.
An estate agent from Harrow, London but originally born in Punguducativu, in northern Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), he came to the UK as a political asylum seeker in 1986. He is a committed to campaigning for peace, justice and self-determination for his brethren on that blighted Island and is an active Member of Parliament of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) www.tgte.org and ACT NOW and supports boycotting activities and genocide witness programmes.
With fellow NC members Graham Williamson and Jagdeesh Singh, he was a founding member of the self-determinist pressure group Nations without States and was a candidate for the NLP in the London region at the European elections (2014).
He was deeply moved by the genocide experienced by Tamils in 2009 in Sri Lanka and the event convinced him of the need to uphold human rights everywhere at all times.
