We are pleased to share with you a powerful new short film, from the makers of the award-winning ‘No Fire Zone’ documentary, which re-visits the final stages of Sri Lanka’s civil war and considers the ongoing need for justice a decade on.
The film, which the Sri Lanka Campaign helped to screen at a recent meeting of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, provides a timely reminder of the terrible atrocities committed at the end of the war, and the government of Sri Lanka’s failure to hold those responsible to account.
As we near the tenth anniversary of the war, we think it is vitally important that those crimes are not forgotten, and that the calls of victims and survivors are finally heard. That is why the film has been made available to be freely shared and downloaded – and why we hope you’ll help us in making sure that it is seen as widely as possible.
Please send it to a friend, family member or colleague today, and tell them why it matters to you.

P.S. You may have spotted Sri Lanka in the news again this month, after the UN Human Rights Council took further action to hold the government to its promise to end human rights abuses and address the legacy of the war. Some of you got in touch with your questions, so we’ve put together this handy ‘explainer‘ to help unpack what exactly happened and what it all means. Have a read here.
P.P.S It is only because of the generosity of people like you that we can continue our work. If you’d like to support what we do, please consider making a donation today. No matter how big or small, it is much needed and much appreciated. Thanks again.
