City University hosted the Breaking the Silence earlier this month, completing the awareness campaign circulating across British universities.
Following on from other British universities, students at City University displayed an array of posters and artwork, many created by the students themselves.
The exhibition attracted a large crowd, with many students keen to find out more about the genocide of Tamils. The event also saw speeches from members of the committee followed by a candle lit vigil, in memory of all the lives lost.
A particular highlight of the event was the wide participation of students laying down their handprints in support of the campaign, and writing down their thoughts after seeing the exhibition.
The event at City University was the final event as part of this year’s ‘Breaking the Silence’ campaign, a university led genocide awareness campaign held with the Tamil Youth Organisation UK.
