Militarization and surveillance in the North-East of Sri Lanka has gone unchecked. The Families of the Disappeared, despite the constant threat of the full strength of the military and the intimidation tactics of intelligence personnel, remain strong – they persist. But there is trauma and ongoing deteriorating mental and physical health. When will people realize that these families are not the enemy. They just want answers.
We want answers.
The Families of the Disappeared have prioritized the following demands:
1. Release the name list of those forcefully disappeared.
2. Release the name list of those being held in secret detention centres and permit us to visit such centres.
If you can, if you are willing, lend your voice in support.
