Sri Lanka at UNHRC: Lawlessness and Impunity PrevailingSalem-News.com
Sri Lanka needs to be admonished for impunity, lawlessness and systemic genocide in regard to Illegal detentions, enforced disappearances.
(GENEVA) - Since the end of civil war on May 19, 2009, the Sri Lankan Government has been increasingly manifesting its racist, militaristic, despotic tendencies. The life of Tamils in North and East of Sri Lanka who survived the government massacres three years ago live today under duress and military occupation.
We the People - Your Voice in Government is petitioning the Obama administration to pay close attention to upcoming UPR of SriLanka at UNHRC, and lawlessness and impunity prevailing currently there.

Salem-News.com has invested thousands of hours into researching this dirty war where one side massacred another and in the process, committed 'total war' which is the very behavior that the Geneva Accords were created to avoid in the first place. We were recently honored by more than 3000 Tamils from around the world in Baltimore for our reports on the war crimes in Sri Lanka. The video below is from my keynote address at this special event, called FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) and also USTPAC (United States Tamil Political Action Committee) and I include this because I want people to appreciate that
a} Tamils from Sri Lanka suffered in silence; and
b} this is news that should have been extensively reported by the mainstream press;
C} Agencies that claim to cover world news mostly ignored it and it required the services of our Oregon-based group to project the magnitude of what took place.
