Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International-USA, the International Crisis Group, and Open Society Foundations in conjunction with Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission are screening the ‘Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields’ Documentary at Capitol Visitors’ Center, Congressional Auditorium and Atrium, Washington D.C, on Friday for US policy makers, Senators and Congressmen.

First aired in British television in June, “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields” captures, footage and extensive interviews with witnesses. The documentary reveals the atrocities committed against civilians during the Sri Lankan Armed Forces’ final campaign to defeat the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in early 2009.

The film was recently screened at the United Nations in New York and Geneva, and has fueled renewed calls for an international response to these crimes.
U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern, Co-Chair of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, will give introductory remarks before the film screening. After the film, panelists will discuss ongoing efforts to further accountability in Sri Lanka, including the findings of the recent U.N. Panel of Experts report on war crimes in Sri Lanka, and the U.S. response to these developments.

    It is perfectly legitimate for those men and women to view the film. The prime question is this: what truth or lie does this film contain?

    Channel 4 showed adulterated video and that is what these people are going to watch. SL Govt should give them the authentic version.

    These guys also should be shown the killing done by LTTE from the commencement of war.... They must be told that it was not only Tamils who were suffered it also includes Sinhala, Tamil & Muslims....
