Take action: Rohingya refugees

Please write to the UN Secretary General, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon at bkm@un.org asking him to personally take the lead in negotiating access for humanitarian aid to all areas in Burma’s Rakhine State. A draft email is outlined.



There is a growing humanitarian and human rights crisis in Arakan State, with over 140,000 Rohingya people displaced.

Take Action to release political prisoners. 

Free Naw Ohn Hla

On 15th May, the military-backed government in Burma sentenced a prominent woman activist, Naw Ohn Hla, to 4 years and 4 months in prison with hard labour, just for taking part in a peaceful protest.

Please take action to help free Htin Lin Oo.

Htin Lin Oo is a writer and a former Information Officer for the National League for Democracy (NLD). On 23rd October 2014, during a speech at a literary event in Northern Burma he criticised the use of Buddhism to promote discrimination and prejudice in the country. A part of his speech was uploaded on social media, which caused outrage among some Buddhist groups.  He was sentenced to two years with hard labour  
after township officials filed a complaint against him. He was charged under Section 295(a) of “insulting religion” and under Section 298 of “wounding religious feelings”.
