London Metropolitan University holds awareness exhibition

London Metropolitan University Tamil Society hosted this year's 'Breaking The Silence' exhibition, as part of an awareness raising campaign by London students highlighting the genocide of Tamils.

The campaign, organised with university Tamil societies and the Tamil Youth Organisation UK, involves students making posters and flyers to display at universities across London.

Taking place during the lively lunch hours in the university campus, the exhibition attracted dozens of students to their stall. Manned by dozens of volunteers, Tamils and non-Tamils alike, including members of staff came to learn more about the genocide that had gripped the island.

Speaking to the Tamil Guardian, a representative from the London Metropolitan University Tamil Society said,

"A member of the Student Union came and told us this was the first time an event like this had ever happened at the London Metropolitan university. They were happy about it and pleased to see young people take part in such activities."

The event also marked the first time that the newly formed London Metropolitan Univeristy Tamil Society has taken part in the "Breaking the Silence" campaign.
