The people in the internment camps want to talk and be heard. Everyone of the over 190,000 men, women and children want to tell their stories. They are fed up with the grand narratives in which they have been used as vulnerable victims by the LTTE and its sympathisers, by the Sri Lankan Government and its embedded spin doctors (and a swindler?) and now increasingly by the UN, the NGOs and the humanitarian industry.

Human rights organisations have warned that shelling and bombing an area with the full knowledge that civilians could be victimised would amount to a war crime. They have also warned that targeting hospitals amount to crimes against humanity.
