From Mullivaikkal to Nakba and Ballymurphy, Truth is the First Victim

Sri Lanka is grappling with its worst economic crisis since its independence in 1948. But amid this serious economic situation, Tamils on the island and around there world are going to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the civil war’s end on May 18, a war that lasted from 1983 to 2009, ushering in the so-called  Mullivaikkal massacre committed by the Sri Lankan Army.

Almost at a similar time every year on May 15, around 12.4 million Palestinians around the world commemorate the Nakba or catastrophe, which refers to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israelis and the near total annihilation of Palestinian society in 1948. The recent assassination of Shireen Abu Aqleh has brutally exposed once more the suffering of the Palestinians.
