SRI LANKA: Continuing militarisation of Tamil school children across northeast


Visvanathan for Global News Centre

(CHENNAI) Please read this article on the continued militarisation in schools. No where else in the world the military gets involved in the education of children; not even in South Sri Lanka, where the children are predominantly Sinhalese. It happens only in the North-East of Sri Lanka, where the people are predominantly Tamils. Why do they do this?

Global News Centre Human Rights Ambassador asks Modi to ensure that Teesta Setalvad guaranteed right to a fair trial

Teesta Setalvad

I express my concern at the risk of detention faced by Teesta Setalvad. I believe that the accusations against the human rights defender are directly linked to her peaceful and legitimate work in the defence of human rights, in particular in combating impunity in the context of communal violence.

William Gomes Global News Centre Human Rights Ambassador

(LONDON)  Teesta Setalvad is a journalist and founder of Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP) and Sabrang Trust. CJP was established in April 2002, in the immediate aftermath of the communal violence of the Gujarat riots, to provide legal aid to the survivors of the riots.  On 13 February 2015, the Indian Supreme Court ordered a stay on the arrest of Ms Teesta Setalvad and her spouse, Mr Javad Anand, until 19 February 2015.  Setalvad, along with her spouse and three other individuals, are under investigation for allegedly embezzling funds intended for the construction of a memorial to the victims of the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Jerusalem is being ethnically cleansed of its people and transformed into a city run by and for racists instead of being a city of peace. The Palestinian self-appointed leaders are in a self-preservation mode.

(BETHLEHEM)  Google puts interesting tidbits on their logo every day worth reading. Today for example they remind us of the birthday of Italian Physics pioneer Alessandro Volta (February 18, 1745 – March 5, 1827) who invented the battery and after whom we say volt and voltage for electricity. We continue to live in societies in which idiotic fundamentalist people professing religion can do ethnic cleansing and massacres using modern tools of scientific inventions for evil acts.

We continue to lose great people.
