We will not be silenced: Tamil journalists protest on World Press Freedom Day

Tamil journalists and media workers protested in Jaffna today to mark World Press Freedom Day.

Members of the Jaffna Press Club were joined by colleagues, politicians and students from the media studies department of Jaffna University.

The protestors called for justice for the Tamil journalists killed or attacked during the conflict and in the years after the war.

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
