Unlock the camps in Sri Lanka

Amnesty International provides an opportunity to call on the Sri Lankan government to allow displaced civilians freedom of movement. 300,000 people displaced by the fighting in Sri Lanka are held by the government in camps that they cannot leave. The United Nations has expressed concerns over the conditions in the camps.

Amnesty International's call to the Sri Lankan government asks that:

those who wish to leave the camps should be free to do so;

the camps should be under civilian, not military, management; and

aid agencies, journalists and human rights observers should be allowed full, unhindered access to the camps to carry out their functions and prevent possible abuses.
