|Will you wear a blue shirt for Burma’s political prisoners?
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.
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.
We need your help to change that.
U Win Tin was one of Burma’s most well-known political prisoners. He served nearly 20 years in jail and after his release famously pledged to keep wearing his blue prison shirt until all political prisoners were released.
21st April is the third anniversary of his death, and on this day people around the world are joining forces, pledging to wear a blue shirt and join the call for the release of all political prisoners in Burma.
