Naw Ohn Hla is a prominent woman activist who has been arrested and imprisoned numerous times for her political activities. On 15th May, Naw Ohn Hla was sentenced to 4 years and 4 months in prison with hard labour, just for taking part in a peaceful protest.  The protesters were urging the Burmese government to investigate the death of a fellow protester in 2014.  This sentence has recently been extended by a further six months with hard labour for allegedly disturbing religious assembly eight years ago. 

You can write a letter to Naw Ohn Hla to express your solidarity.
