A network of Tamil civil society activists based in the North-East, have formally launched a collective organisation - the Tamil Civil Society Forum (TCSF).
The TCSF, which includes over sixty activists at present, held its first Annual General Meeting on November 15.
"The primary objective of the forum is to create, provide space and act as a medium for articulation and expression of the views of its membership on contemporary issues of social, political, economic and cultural interests to the Tamil people living in the island of Sri Lanka," the TCSF said.
