Mullaitivu families of the disappeared mark 500 days of protest

Families of the disappeared in Mullaitivu marked 500 days of protest today following months of prolonged demonstrations calling on the government to release the whereabouts of their missing loved ones. 

Condemning the government's inaction and broken promises, families also criticised Tamil elected representatives for their silence. 

During the past 500 days demonstrators have faced harassment and intimidation from Sri Lankan intelligence officers and the leader of the protest was attacked by unknown persons. 

Marking 500 days the families said they would be drawing the continuous protests to a close but would continue to demonstrate in other ways.
