British Tamils mark Black July with protest in London

Dozens of British Tamils gathered outside the Sri Lankan High Commission in London this week, as they marked 37 years since the deadly anti-Tamil Black July pogroms.

Protestors chanted slogans and held placards demanding justice for the atrocities that saw thousands of Tamils killed by government-backed Sinhala mobs.

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
