On Channel 4 now.
Unsurprisingly, this is one of the darkest things I've ever seen.
I studied a bit of this and got really interested in it just as it all came to ahead. Truly a horrible genocide that wasn't fairly represented in the media at all.
really glad i stayed up to watch that last night... horrific. had to cover my eyes when they said an execution was about to happen. just couldnt watch it.
i was in sri lanka 2 months before all that happened and there literally wasnt a word about it. the tammil tigers tried to crash an aeroplane into a building in Columbo when i was there but apart from that, not a whisper. i knew the government was a bit cunty to the tamils but fucking hell, i had no idea it was that bad.
Horrible as it is, everyone should watch this.
And I have to say, I agree with him. Haven't watched it yet, but certainly will now it's on 4od.
It left me, once again, utterly furious with the UN.
