It contains some awful footage of war crimes towards women one of them is even identified as a dead TV presenter. ,among shelling hospitals deliberately, suicide bombers etc mass executions. Talks about hoew the international witnesses were forced to leave and how theknew they we being abandoned at a time of need I can't imagine the guilt. one of them is even identified as a dead TV presenter.
Did anyone else see this? I'm suprised this hasnt has a thread. was on last week.
I didn't see the programme, but Sri Lanka has a long and bloody history of waging war on its own citizens, with, as always, the female population suffering beyond measure. My mother was one of a large mainly female family who suffered horrendously at the hands of soldiers in Sri Lanka in the past - more than 50 years later she still bears the physical and emotional scars.
The situation in Sri Lanka is still dire for many women, the young who are routinely subjected to rape and torture, the old who are treated as slaves and thrown on the junk heap. It makes me want to weep.
the bit that actually upset me the most is where after a suicide bomber a victiom of the explosion (a little girl toddler age) was wearing what looked like a princess dress was picked up and put into the back of a trick with the rest.
the facilities were so bad a 6 year old boy who had had his limbs damaged in an explosion had to be amputated with a kitchen knife, no anaesthetic becasue there was nothing.
