Peace Campaign – “Life not Death; Peace Not War”

In December 2005, the Sri Lankan Women for Peace and Democracy (SLWPD), a group of women’s organizations facilitate by the Women and Media Collective launched a peace campaign on the theme “Life not Death; Peace not War,” demanding that the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE resume negotiations and call for an end to the escalating violence and the disruption of the Ceasefire Agreement. Since then the peace campaign has continued every month, with women from various districts gathering together at Lipton Circus in Colombo, calling in one voice and one demand, for an end to the violence, an end to the killings, an end to the war and a return to peace.
