Preparations continue at Mullivaikkal despite Sri Lankan military intimidation

Despite attempts by the Sri Lankan authorities to intimidate and harass Tamils, preparations have continued at Mullivaikkal to commemorate Tamil Genocide Day tomorrow.

Clergy members joined local civil society members to help prepare the memorial site at Mullivaikkal earlier today, at the beach where tens of thousands of Tamils were massacred by the Sri Lankan military 13 years ago.

The Sri Lankan security forces watched on from nearby and have been continuing to harass, intimidate and question those involved in remembrance activities this week.



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
