Families of the disappeared protest in Maruthankerny marked one year since their ongoing campaign began.
They were joined by protestors from Kilinochchi, Trincomalee, Mullaitivu and Vavuniya who all passed one year of protest in their locations in recent weeks.
The protestors marched to the Maruthankerny divisional secretariat to hand over a petition directed at the United Nations, calling for international action to ensure truth and accountability for the disappearances of their relatives.

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
