The long running campaign by families of the disappeared across the Tamil homeland was highlighted in a moving photo exhibition, 'Album of Persecution: Justice, Despair, Tears', in Jaffna last week.
The photographs by the prominent Mullaitivu based journalist, K Kumanan illustrated the anguish of the families who have campaigned for over two years for the truth about their loved ones who were disappeared in the final stages of the armed conflict.
Their campaign has been widely supported across the North-East, with businesses, university students, faith leaders and civil society groups, as well as Tamils in the diaspora expressing solidarity with their plight.
We need your support
Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
