|The photo for amnesty Int. and Khun dee De|
I was asked to have my picture of my hand taken for Amnesty International…so I did and on my hand you can just see the name of a political prisoner….one of 2200…..
“There are now more than 2,200 political prisoners in Burma, more than at any other time since the mass pro-democracy uprising in 1988. This summer, we are asking you to stand in solidarity with them and join our visual petition calling for their freedom. The photos will be collected and taken to ASEM – the summit meeting of political leaders from Asia and Europe, in Brussels in October. Amnesty will call on these leaders to press for freedom for Burma’s political prisoners, and real human rights for Burma.”
You can join in too and send in your own pictures of yourself and your hand at http://www.amnesty.org.uk/hand
