NPC members plant trees in Jaffna ahead of Maaveerar Naal

Members of the Northern Provincial Council adorned Gloriosa Lilies (Kaathikai Poo) and planted trees earlier this month ahead of Tamil National Remembrance Day on November 27. 

Since the end of the armed conflict, the planting of trees in November has become a form of commemoration of those who died fighting for the Tamil struggle. 

This year, the first tree planting event was held in Mannar. Events have been organised by the NPC's agriculture ministry.

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
