Remembering Silenced Voices

Black July 1983

 

Black July 1983 Remembering Silenced Voices In commemoration of its 25th Anniversary, this forum aims to present an archive of news reports, statements, pictures and testimonials while providing survivors, families of victims and expatriates from the 1980's exodus an opportunity to record their story. The collective effort of Canadians and Tamils around the world will help to sustain the memories of the victims and the truths of the genocide so that Black July will never be forgotten.
