Free Zarganar & U Kyaw Thu sign now

At the 10th Cinema for Peace Gala, Nobel Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi in a video message called on the film community to stand up for Burma (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2lVm2Wk5_E).

The Burmese popular artist Zarganar has received a sentence of 59 years in 2008. He was sent to prison for publicly supporting peaceful protests against the government. The Burmese actor and Myanmar Academy Award winner U Kyaw Thu suffers the same fate. Freedom of speech is tightly restrained in Burma: Much like Zarganar and U Kyaw Thu, countless artists are under arrest or prevented from working in their craft, because they engaged in humanitarian activities or criticised the government.

Support our campaign for Zarganar and U Kyaw Thu by signing this petition:


To President Thein Sein,

We, the undersigned artists, filmmakers and members of society, call for creative freedom in Burma, the immediate removal of work bans for artists and the immediate release of the artists U Kyaw Thu and Zarganar who currently are imprisoned for their political opinions and their commitment for their own country.
