A memorial float travelled through Mullaitivu today to mark the third day Tamil Genocide Remembrance Week commemorating the tens of thousands killed by the Sri Lankan state 14 years ago.
As the float travelled through Mullaitivu, residents paid their respects to those who were massacred in Mullivaikkal by laying flowers in the float.
The float will travel to Kilinochchi and Jaffna over the next few days before heading back to Mullivaikkal where Tamils will gather to commemorate the Tamil genocide on May 18.
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
