Sikh demonstrators commemorate 'genocide' and demand separate state

Thousands of members of the Sikh community marched through central London yesterday in protest of the massacre at the Golden Temple in India over 30 years ago, reports the BBC.

Protestors demanded that the 1984 massacre of Sikhs be recognised as a genocide, whilst others called for the Sikh people’s right to self-determination to be upheld.

In San Francisco, an estimated 15,000 people showed solidarity with the Sikh demands for a separate homeland in the Indian state of Punjab.

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
