At this year’s Amnesty International Media Awards, AIUK gave the Special Award for Journalism under threat not to one individual, but to all the independent journalists of Burma. This video explains why – http://www.protectthehuman.com/videos/journalism-under-threat-burma
These journalists in Burma keep the flame of freedom burning and is of immense value in protecting human rights for those in Burma. They do so at considerable personal risk and with great courage and bravery against the odds to ensure the Burmese population know the truth and are aware of their choices. Our work as human rights activists offers support to the Burmese people and our solidarity plays an important role.
This year we are increasing our activism as Amnesty International this year as elections take place in Burma. You can find out more about our work at www.amnesty.org.uk/burma
