As the Sri Lankan government announce a temporary truce in fighting between government forces and the Tamil Tigers, Tamils reach day 6 of their protest in London to object to the carnage being meted out to the Tamil civilian population.
Two men have now been on hunger strike for over a week, one of them now receiving medical help prior to travelling to the United Nations to appeal for peace.
The second man continues his hunger strike in the Square and is now becoming emaciated.
Since the start of the assault, British Tamils have carried out several very large protests mobilising over a million people in the United Kingdom.
Despite the crisis, the British government have failed to reconvene parliament.
Parliament Square, London. 12th April 2009.
