On January 2nd, 2006, five Tamil students were killed by Sri Lankan security forces in Trincomalee. However, the court case is still pending and no one has been brought to justice for their killing.

Join us at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference this weekend to discuss and act upon the human rights abuses and violations experienced by youth in Sri Lanka.

“Drone Attacks Fueling Terrorism” & What You Can Do

In light of Malala’s courageous comments blasting U.S. Drone strikes in her native country, Pakistan, we bring our attention to Amnesty International’s comprehensive drone report that will be released next Tuesday, Oct. 22.   

image

The report will be the most extensive of its kind (in the framework of human rights). 

It is important, as citizens, that we exercise our ability to defend against abuses like those suffered by innocent civilians in Pakistan. Join us at Amnesty’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference on Nov. 2 in DC for an exclusive workshop catered towards training participants to:

1. write effective op-eds

2. broaden their understanding of national security issues and

3. learn how to engage in media activism

—all meaningful and equally important ways to curtail government-funded killing of innocents.
