Story

Burma: Free Zarganar

 


 

Popular comedian Zarganar is serving a 35-year prison sentence for leading a movement that collected money and supplies for the survivors of Cyclone Nargis, which hit Burma (Myanmar) on 2-3 May 2008.

Zarganar (aged 49) was arrested on 4 June 2008, after he criticised the government's handling of the cyclone relief situation in interviews with foreign journalists. Zarganar, who joined the 1988 uprising against military rule, has been arrested before for his pro-democracy efforts.

By sponsoring me on my Santa run this will enable Amnesty International to continue to campaign for justice for extraordinary people like Zarganar.
