Sri Lanka – Tell the Truth

by Jim McDonald, Sri Lanka Country Specialist, AIUSA

More than four years after the end of Sri Lanka’s brutal civil war, appalling human rights abuses continue to occur every day, including torture, enforced disappearances and arbitrary detention. This can’t go on. Amnesty International has recently launched a campaign calling on the Sri Lankan government to tell the truth about human rights violations in the country. The campaign includes a global petition asking the government to take six specific steps to improve the protection of human rights in Sri Lanka. Our goal is to get 10,000 signatures on the petition by September 1. Please sign the petition and share it widely.
