UK Politicians Stand in Unity for Burma’s Political Prisoners

With the British parliament about to go into it’s summer recess we managed to grab one last opportunity to hold an event in the House of Commons to bring the UK’s politicians attention to Burma’s political prisoners. Foreign Minister Jeremy Browne MP and Anne Clywd MP both spoke but as usual it was Waihnin Pwint Thon who stole the show with another enigmatic, powerful and emotional speech reinforcing not only what needs to be done by the politicians around us in the room but also the horrendous suffering of more than 2,100 political prisoners currently detained.

A number of leading UK politicians from both the House of Commons and the House of Lords joined in the campaign:

Anne Clywd MP

Lord Hylton

Madeleine Moon MP

Baroness D’Souza

Cathy Jamieson MP

Lord Dubs

Baroness Miller

Emma Reynolds MP
