"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."

- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

2. A WELL FOUNDED FEAR

This video illustrates the deficient procedures in dealing with asylum applications in the UK. It documents the cases of 2 of the Tamil asylum seekers who, in 1988 were forcibly returned to Sri Lanka as the Home Office did not recognize they had a "well founded fear" of persecution on return. They were detained and tortured within weeks of their return to Sri Lanka. The High Court eventually ruled that they could return to the UK. * 35 mins *1991, Yorkshire TV * stlg10 purchase price
