We Will Not Give Up Our Struggle for Justice!
30th National Commemoration of the Disappeared, October 27, 2020
Families of the Disappeared had made all arrangements for the 30th annual commemoration of victims of enforced disappearances and killings, at the Seeduwa, Raddoluwa monument, as part of our efforts during the last 29 years to uncover the truth about enforced disappearances or killings, punish perpetrators and bring justice to the families of victims. Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 in the country and the imposition of quarantine curfew, it was challenging to have the commemoration as planned.
The COVID-19 epidemic has turned beyond a community health crisis, it has now transformed into a socio-economic crisis. Instead of solving the real problems of the people in this crisis, the military is encroaching into many sectors of the society.
The present government will not be allowed to ignore the process of bringing justice to the families of victims by revealing the truth about the enforced disappeared and preventing the recurrence of such crimes against humanity. Together, it must be ensured that struggle for justice for the victims’ families and their loved ones, even during these difficult times will be continued. Therefore, it is informed that some activities conducted related to this year’s commemoration will be broadcast live on the Facebook page,” Families of the Disappeared”
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the disappeared, SOME videos created by Families of the Disappeared are released on social media.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK_3ClYsfrM&feature=youtu.be
