Early in May the BBC World Service contacted me about appearing on their radio programme “Outlook” to be interviewed by Matthew Banister about the project and campaign. It was a great opportunity to raise awareness for political prisoners and rather than have me tell the stories and issues I suggested that Daw Nita Yin Yin May accompany me as hearing from a former political prisoner first hand would be far more compelling. Thankfully the BBC thought it was a great idea and you can listen to the short interview below where Daw Nita talks about her experiences as a political prisoner in Burma.

Many thanks to Aunty Nita for agreeing to accompany me to the interview and to the BBC World Service for the airtime to help raise awareness for Burma’s 2,199 currently detained.
