PEARL launches Sinhalization of the North-East info series

The US-based advocacy group PEARL (People for Equality and Relief in Lanka) have launched “Sinhalization of the North-East”, a series on demographic changes in the Tamil homeland.

Presenting and analysing data gathered by PEARL researchers, the series examines how Sinhalisation and militarisation is used to deliberately shift the demographics of Tamil and Muslim areas.

The first report in the series focuses on Pulmoaddai, the Trincomalee town which borders Mullaitivu, and the extent to which military infrastructure, Buddhist instalments and Sinhala settlements have altered the town.
