Maaveerar remembered outside Koappay military camp

NPC Councillors S Shivajilingam and S Sajeevan led Maaveerar Naal commemorations outside the headquarters of the military's 51 Division - formerly the site of an LTTE cemetery.
The cemetery was destroyed in 1995 and rebuilt by the LTTE during the ceasefire, before the Sri Lankan state again bulldozed the graves in 2010, to build the army camp on its remains.

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
