Sri Lankans protest outside Ranil’s hotel in London after Queen’s funeral

A small group of British Sri Lankan protestors demonstrated outside a hotel in Central London this morning.

Approximately a dozen protestors gathered outside the InterContinental London Park Lane, where Sri Lankan president Ranil Wickremesinghe is thought to be staying.

The protestors held Sri Lankan flags and placards denouncing him as a “fake president”.

Though placards echoed one of the longstanding Tamil demands to repeal Sri Lanka’s Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), none of the other placards called for an international accountability mechanism for genocide or a complete demilitarisation of the North-East.

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
