    As you may know, Human Rights Watch is one of the largest human rights organizations in the world. We investigate human rights abuses, publish reports on our findings and mount campaigns to put an end to the abusive practices we have exposed. By engaging the media, the public and policymakers, we generate intense pressure to confront human rights abusers and promote human rights protections.

    As major fighting between the Sri Lankan military and rebel Tamil Tigers has resumed, so have serious abuses committed by both sides. On Tuesday, 31 July at 7 pm, Charu Hogg, our South Asia researcher will be discussing her most recent fact-finding mission. Her report documents how Sri Lankan forces are violating the laws of war by indiscriminate attacks on civilians and forcibly returning the internally displaced to their homes. At the same time, the government has cracked down on critics in the media and civil society who criticize its approach.

    This event is being put on by the Human Rights Watch London Network, a young professionals group, that helps support our work by putting on events such as the one with Charu. We would be delighted if you were able to join us.
