International Day of Disappeared marked by Tamils in London

Hundreds of Tamils gathered in London last week to mark the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances and to call for justice and accountability for the thousands of Tamils who have been forcibly disappeared in Sri Lanka.

The demonstration, organised by the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE), saw hundreds of people at Trafalgar Square, with placards and banners calling for those responsible for disappearances to be prosecuted.

The London rally took place as Tamils in Mannar protested on the same day, calling for an international mechanism to investigate and prosecute for disappearances.

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
