The demonstration was organised by an organisation calling itself the Voice of the Voiceless, made up of former Tamil political prisoners and the relatives of political prisoners.

 

Despite the end of the armed conflict over eleven and a half years ago, hundreds of Tamil political prisoners continue to languish in jail, with only a handful having been released in recent years.
