For the past five years the Sri Lanka Campaign has fought tirelessly to support Sri Lanka’s war survivors in their struggle for truth and justice – defending local human rights activists, bringing pressure to bear on the international community to deliver change, and helping to ensure that ongoing abuses remain in full view of the world.
Next month sees the culmination of that struggle: the presentation of a UN report into human rights violations in Sri Lanka which will almost certainly establish that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been committed. However, whilst the findings of the report will be hugely symbolic, it is the follow up action that will really matter – and worryingly, there already signs that this will fall far short of what war survivors demand and what lasting peace requires.
Earlier this month we laid out our plan for closing that gap. But in order to follow through on it, we need your help. By making a donation today, you will help us to maintain the pressure on the international community and ensure that momentum during this critical period is not lost.
