Thein Sein Lied! Political Prisoners are Still in Jail
No Political Prisoner Left Behind
Around 178 people in Burma are in jail for political reasons. Some are in jail for protesting for their rights, some for criticising the government or the military, and some just because of their ethnicity or religion. Activists continue to be arrested.
Yet, most people think all political prisoners have been released. There is very little pressure on the NLD-led government in Burma to free remaining political prisoners.
No political prisoner should be left behind in jail.
Burma Campaign UK is making a difference, but without support from members of the public our work would end.
