Vikalpa, Sri Lanka’s only citizen journalism initiative working primarily in Sinhala and Tamil, is pleased to announce the official launch of the Vikalpa YouTube video channel.
Our YouTube channel complements the text on this website and currently features over 50 short videos on human rights, peace, war, media freedom, gender and politics in Sri Lanka.
Videos on the Vikalpa YouTube channel have already generated hundreds of views, with a few generating views in the thousands. For example, a video (in Sinhala) on a human rights activist’s trip to and experiences in the embattled Jaffna peninsula in the North of Sri Lanka, viewed over 4,000 times, propelled the channel into #82 of the top 100 list of Director’s Channels on YouTube in the 4th week of December 2007.
Please see the full selection of videos here.
