This project is now well and truely being taken to the masses on a global scale. Amnesty International UK are now fully on board with this political prisoner work and it’s set to become a major part of their campaign work for Burma and obviously that means creating a huge amount of awareness of the political prisoner issue. The idea remains sacred in that former political prisoners are leading the way in demanding the release of their colleagues currently detained. What we want the world to do now is stand with them.
The last three weeks have been hectic beyond belief planning and meeting people and we’ve decided to make a short film about the project to date and incorporate a message to ask the world to stand with Burma’s former political prisoners and take action to demand the release of all those currently detained. The film will be released in late June/early July but for now you can see some of the behind the scenes photographs where Waihnin Pwint Thon, daughter of 88 Generation Student leader Mya Aye, joins in the campaign by writing the name of her father on her hand and taking action to stand with the former political prisoners who are leading the way.
