If, like us and Amnesty International, you dislike inequality, injustice and inhumane treatment of people, whoever they are, you can do your bit to help. A card, a letter or a facebook message can encourage a Burmese student by helping to persuade the authorities to release her and other peaceful student protesters. Her case is summarised below. Then click the links for guidance and what to say, where to send it and how.
Phyoe Phyoe Aung is secretary-general of the All Burma Federation Student Union, one of the largest student unions in Burma. She and more than 100 student protesters were charged with a range of criminal offences after speaking out against Burma's new National Education Law. Many of the activists face sentences of more than nine years' imprisonment. Despite what appears to be a systematic clampdown on the student movement, there is reason to believe that the authorities can be pressured into releasing Phyoe Phyoe Aung and the others.
