A warm thank you to all those who took part in Wednesday’s online action to draw attention to the disappearance of Prageeth Eknaligoda.
The response has been incredible. People tweeted from all over the world. By noon (GMT) people had tweeted the campaign to over twenty four thousand of their followers. Former Beirut hostage Charles Glass used one of his first ever tweets to promote the campaign and organisations such as English PEN, the South Asia Free Media Association, the Committee to Protect Journalists and the Index on Censorship also joined in. The story has now been picked up by the newspapers.
Of course while the anniversary has passed, the campaign will not end. It is not too late to help #findprageeth. For more on our media freedom campaign click here.
Unfortunately this kind of campaigning is not cheap. We need money to pay for web editors, designers, our website hosting, internet connections and interns. Our campaign simply cannot run without the help of people like you.
