Families of Disappeared dress in black for Tamil New Year

Family members of the disappeared marked Tamil New Year this week by dressing in black, as they continued their protest for justice and accountability for their loved ones.

Protestors in Kilinochchi marked 421 days since they started their protest calling for the whereabouts of their loved ones.

Though the protestors met with Sri Lanka’s President almost ten months ago, promises he made during the meeting remain unfulfilled.

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
