Families of disappeared protesting in Kilinochchi pay tribute to Annai Poopathy

Families of the disappeared at Kilinochchi paid tribute to Annai Poopathy on the 30th anniversary of her death on Friday.

The protestors at Kilinochchi, particularly the mothers of forcibly disappeared young Tamils, paid tribute to Annai Poopathy’s commitment to obtain justice through peaceful protest, similar to their ongoing protest, and to her resilience as a mother that had suffered the shooting and killing of two of her sons by the Sri Lankan Army.
