Censorship, Disinformation & Murder of Journalists

“…States that want to oppress a people do so by breaking their political will to resist injustice. To do this, oppressing states kill a societies intellectuals and journalists who speak for the rights of their people. They want the Tamils to be intellectually rudderless. It is easier to enslave a people who have lost their ability to understand the nature of their oppression…”‘   D. Sivaram, columnist for Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) and Virakesari (Tamil Daily), memorial speech for  Slain Batticaloa journalist Aiyathurai Nadesan, 7 August 2004

What can we do to persuade the international media to speak the truth about the Tamil struggle for freedom  from alien Sinhala rule?  

Here are somethings each of us can do…

* Every time BBC gives an incorrect  report about our struggle for freedom, we can complain to the BBC by calling  08700 100 222 or we can make a complaint on line or we can make our comment at the BBC website (for this, you have to create a user name and password to do that, which is free.).

* Every time Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM)  releases an incorrect statement about our struggle for freedom, we can complain to the SLMM by email or at their website

*We can make it increasingly difficult for those who would pretend to sleep to continue their pretence with any credibility. It should take not more than ten minutes of our time.
