PRESS: RFA, VOA and BBC airing skyful of interviews

“RFA, VOA and BBC airing skyful of lies”. That’s the usual propaganda broadcast daily on state controlled media both on MRTV and in the New Light of Myanmar. However, they might like to change it now to a “skyful of interviews” as in the last 48 hours I have done telephone interviews with all three. What can now be deemed an award winning project has now gained the attention of exiled media across the world. First up was an interview on VOA with Zaw Win Hlaing in Washington DC. Accompanying this interview they also spoke with former political prisoner, artist and also my good friend Htein Lin who’s portrait was included as part of the winning submission. Next up was another interview with Washington with RFA followed finally by a more local call with the BBC. It’s incredible to achieve such attention in the exiled media and the best news is that all of the interviews will be broadcast not just around the world, but also back into Burma. The exposure for the project is immense and it brings the issue of political prisoners back into the forefront of people’s minds (not like it ever goes away). Time will tell if I’m able to get a visa again…
