British Tamils Forum (BTF) intends to stage similar 'walking and talking' campaigns on a regular basis in many UK cities wearing clothing carrying clear messages and giving out leaflets with relevant information to educate the British public in the absence of mainstream media coverage, the report released by BTF said.

The BTF’s mission is “[t]o harness the skills and the knowledge of the members of the forum, well-wishers and significant others including the mainstream decision makers in the UK to alleviate the sufferings of the Tamils in the Island of Sri Lanka and to further their right to self determination within the democratic frame work under pinned by the international law, covenants and conventions,” the BTF website said.

BTF was formed in 2006 with the support 88 British Tamil community organizations, according to BTF officials.
