Documentary demands John Key boycott CHOGM meeting in Sri Lanka
The shocking documentary “No Fire Zone” shown on the UK’s Channel 4 TV network yesterday shows why John Key must not attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Sri Lanka next week.
The documentary is a damning critique of the horrific war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan Armed forces in 2009 under Mahinda Rajapaksa who is now the Sri Lankan president.
These are not isolated incidents of torture and murder but war crimes on a grand scale.
The you-tube link to the documentary is here:
Prime Minister John Key simply cannot attend CHOGM and GPJA has sent him a letter today calling on him to withdraw from the meeting and make a strong stand for human rights like the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper who is boycotting the meeting.
Meanwhile GPJA is supporting the march organised by the New Zealand Tamil Society for this Saturday which will condemn these war crimes and demand that John Key not give succour to the bloody Rajapaksa regime.
The march gathers at Britomart at 12noon.
