Ms Arnestad lived in Sri Lanka and made a quite remarkable film “My Daughter the Terrorist”. She and producer Morten Daae won the Best Norwegian TV Documentary award at the 2009 Gullruten (the Norwegian equivalent of the Emmy Awards). In her acceptance speech she talks spoke about events in May 2009. More recently, she was interviewed for CNN’s Amanpour programme. In that blog she says something particularly important: “The World has an obligation to expose the slaughter of civilians in large numbers for political reasons by Governments. We have a responsibility to pressure such governments to stop such behaviour.” In joining and supporting this Campaign, Ms Arnestad is showing she means what she says.
