On 7 December 2018, Nang Pu, Lum Zawng and Zau Jat were sentenced to six months in prison and 500,000 Kyat (£250) fine each in Kachin State, Northern Burma. Their crime? They organised peaceful protests during the spring of 2018 in support of villagers trapped in the jungle, after the Burmese army had attacked their villages. Now Nang Pu, Lum Zawng and Zau Jat have to spend Christmas in prison, away from their families.
Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma’s President Win Myint have the power to release them, through a presidential pardon, together with all remaining political prisoners in Burma, and the NLD has the majority in Parliament to repeal all repressive laws in Burma.
Please write to Aung San Suu Kyi and ask her to release these three political prisoners, and to repeal all repressive laws in Burma.
