[We Remember] Tens of thousands of tamil lives lost and tens of thousands disappeared. Where have our sons and daughters gone? We need answers, we need justice. They try to silence us but we remember.
The Sri Lankan government continues to undermine and ignore the Families of the Disappeared, mostly Tamil mothers, prolonging their suffering on the roadside. We must urge the international community to push harder for truth, accountability and justice, to find a solution and to find answers, especially for these mothers. Please lend your voice in support and sign the petition at https://www.srilankacampaign.org/
Last night I was able to present this painting as part of @cantamilyouth ’s Tamil Genocide Awareness event - Macabre of the Silenced. Grateful to the organizers for inviting me to participate and so humbled to share space with incredible Tamil women artists and activists that I look up to and continue to learn from everyday. Please check out fellow artists: @wavesofcolour and @aranisartistry. To gain a better understanding of what is happening in the homeland please look to these organizations: @adayaalam_cpr , @pearl_action and @tamilguardian. And follow @47roots to find out where their next screening of the important documentary ‘Sri Lanka’s Disappeared’ will be screening next.
