SRI LANKA, KILINOCHCHI : In this photo handed out by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Sri Lanka’s rebel-held Kilinochchi, LTTE supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran makes his annual policy statement from an undisclosed location in the island’s embattled north, 27 November 2006. The Tamil people of Sri Lanka have no choice but to have their own independent state, rebel chief Velupillai Prabhakaran declared, effectively ending the island’s peace process.

Article Velupillai Prabhakaran
Portion used Portrait crop.
Low resolution? Yes.
Purpose of use To illustrate the article on Velupillai Prabhakaran, the longtime leader of one of the parties to the ongoing Sri Lankan Civil War.
Replaceable? (1) As the leader of a rebel movement engaged in active hostilities, Prabhakaran is currently unlikely to be in a situation in which a freely licensed image of him could be taken. (2) It is claimed by the Sri Lankan Government (as of 18 May 2009) that Prabhakaran has been killed, which would make a freely licensed image impossible to create; if however he has not been killed, then paragraph (1) would still apply.
Other information As this appears to be a widely circulated propaganda image, its use on Wikipedia is unlikely to replace any original market role of the original copyrighted media.

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
