A week after satellite images are released confirming mass graves in Tamil held northern Sri Lanka, Mr Tim Martin reaches day 17 of his hunger strike in Parliament Square.
He continues to demand that aid workers and observers are allowed into the country and that the displaced Tamil people are given immediate formal medical assistance.
Much of the Tamil population are currently sheltered in IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps and reports coming from Sri Lanka itself are now claiming human rights abuses including forced land transactions as the Sri Lankan government formally set about removing the Tamils from their land.
To date, the UN (United Nations) continue to acquiesce to the Sri Lankan government and, as a result, the widespread abuses continue.
