Remember the Maaveerar by assisting their families says Shivajilingam

The member of the Northern Provincial Council, M K Shivajilingam on Monday called on Tamils to remember the sacrifice of Tamils who fought in the struggle and commemorate Tamil National Remembrance Day (Maaveerar Naal) by providing assistance to their families. 

"Maaveerar Vaaram (Tamil National Remembrance Week) has begun today," Mr Shivajilingam said. 
“In this situation, everyone should come forward to provide livelihood assistance to the families of Maaveerar who are living in the midst of great misery and poverty."

“Thousands of former carders are living with the loss of their families and limbs. In this week, we should be preparing to provide livelihood support for them," he added.

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
