Maaveerar memorial unveiled in Nallur

A memorial was unveiled in Nallur, Jaffna yesterday, to mark the first day of Maaveerar remembrance week. 

Parents of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) cadres inaugurated the event by uncovering 34 plaques which listed the names of all those who gave their lives to the Tamil struggle for self-determination. 

Lamps were lit and flowers were laid to remember their sacrifices. 

The memorial will remain in Nallur until Maaveerar Naal which falls on November 27. 

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
