KCL Tamil students break the silence on genocide

Students at King's College London's Tamil society kick started this year's 'Breaking the Silence' campaign on Tuesday. With posters, photographs and message board, the students were determined to spread the word on the genocide of Tamils.

Held by The Spit, the buzzing end of the student union at Guy's campus by London bridge, the campaign attracted many passer-bys and supporters from amongst the staff and students.

 

As a mark of solidarity with Tamil students, other students left messages of support written over a hand print, expressing the horror and shock they felt at learning of the genocide of Tamils in the North-East.

'Breaking the Silence' is an awareness campaign organised by Tamil societies across London universities, held to coincide with the nation's Remembrance Day on 27th November, and the Youth Maaveerar Naal.

 

As proud hosts of this year's Youth Maaveerar Naal, King's Tamil society invited all the supporters to the event this Friday and distributed the 'kaarthigai poo' remembrance leaflets.

 

 

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
