SL teachers join lawyers in Weriweliya condemnation

The Teacher-Principal Trade Unions Joint Committee condemned the Weriweliya incident, and said that the government should take responsibility for it.

The committee's swift public condemnation, in line with legal bodies, criticised the military's attack on 'unarmed civilians who were protesting for a basic human need'.

Condemnation from the Sinhala polity, professional bodies and public has been swift. See more:

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
