Free Political Prisoners

Free Political Prisoners – No prisoner left behind archive page

Thein Sein broke his promise to release all political prisoners by the end of 2013.

Burma’s government is using political prisoners as human bargaining chips, releasing them to gain positive publicity in an attempt to stop international pressure without making fundamental democratic reforms.

Many are released conditionally, and all the laws under which they were jailed remain in place, and must be repealed. Activists continue to be arrested to try to intimidate people who disagree with the government.

No political prisoner should be left behind in jail.

The British government must work with the international community to make sure this happens.

You can also write directly to these political prisoners to express your solidarity.
