Great news! A group of boys from King Edward VI Grammar School, Stratford upon Avon has formed an Amnesty group and is staging an action in support of the Burma Campaign in the Bancroft Gardens, Stratford upon Avon between 3.30 p.m. and 6.0 p.m. on Friday July 9th.They are inviting Amnesty members and the public to make origami boats, sign them with a personalised message, and float them down the River Avon.
They are particularly keen to show their support of students Khun Bedu, Khun Kawrio and Khun Dee De who were arrested for peaceful protest. As leading members of a youth group they had organised local dissidents to release balloons, launch paper boats and spray-paint walls with their peaceful political messages. For these simple acts of defiance they were sentenced to between 35 and 37 years in prison.
It would be wonderful if as many members as possible could support this action. For more information about the Burma Campaign and this event go to: www.amnesty.org.uk/stratfordonavon
