British Tamils mark Black July with protest at Downing Street

British Tamils held a protest at Downing Street this evening, as they marked 36 years since the Black July pogrom where thousands of Tamils were killed by rampaging Sinhala mobs.

Crowds gathered in London where they chanted slogans calling for justice for the massacres and for an independent Tamil state to safeguard Tamil lives.

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
