Imperial College London continues 'Breaking the Silence' campaign

 

Students at Imperial College London continued the "Breaking the Silence" campaign at British universities earlier this week, following on from their fellow students at King's College London.

Displaying an exhibition of posters made by the students themselves, a large crowd gathered at the student Union and Junior Common Room, within the Sherffield Building to learn more about the ongoing genocide of the Tamil nation.

Organisers from Imperial's Tamil Society, one of London's oldest Tamil societies, said they were taken aback by the interest expressed by students and staff at the university, with many keen to learn more.

Also on display was artwork depicting the horrors of the war, including conditions in Internally Displaced Persons camps.

The "Breaking the Silence" campaign has been taking place annually at university campuses across London since 2009, commemorating the run up to Tamil National Remembrance Day on the 27th of November.

 

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
