Twenty years ago, Aung San Suu Kyi's party, the National League for Democracy, won the national election in Burma in a landslide. The military junta prevented it from taking power. Now another election has been promised but restrictions on freedom of expression, association and assembly are severe and likely to escalate as the vote draws near.
On the 16th of June Amnesty International's Burma expert, Benjamin Zawacki is speaking at the Amnesty Office for Amnesty staff and activists. A great opportunity to join us for the latest on the human rights situation on the ground as Burma heads towards election.
When: Wednesday the 16th of June 2010 from 1.00pm-2.00pm
Where: Mahatma Ghandi Room, Amnesty International Action Centre, Level 1, 79 Myrtle Street, Chippendale, NSW 2008
