@TamilGuardian Twitter account suspended

Message from the Tamil Guardian team: At 17:00 GMT today, our Twitter account - @TamilGuardian - was suspended. We have reason to believe false allegations were made against us. We will of course be appealing this suspension and will update @TamilGuardian readers in due course. We are deeply concerned by this suspension, and feel it represents an extension of the repression of Tamil media that takes place within the island of Sri Lanka. In particular it echoes recent attempts to undermine the presence of other Tamil social media accounts such as @JaffnaPressClub . Follow TG writers on Twitter...

Professing defeatism or surrendering basic grounds are not the ways to begin or to sustain the struggle.
