Ahead of the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, an advert both in The Herald and the National, two Scottish papers, speaks out against Sri Lanka's attempt to conceal its record of genocide behind claims of "climate leadership and stewardship".
This latest advert comes as part of a coordinated campaign by Scottish Tamils to raise awareness of the ongoing issues of human rights abuses in Sri Lanka and the failure to hold war criminals to account. In addition to numerous adverts, Tamil activists were successful in projecting images on landmarks across Scotland.

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
