As an explanation to newcomers to this blog – I found out quite late in my life (30ish) that my natural father is Burmese. While researching the country I became aware of the situation there and find myself having a real passion to see justice come in this land. Please read and act if you are able. If you have no idea what is happening in Burma, then check out the this website.
‘Burma VJ’ tells the remarkable story of the brave young video journalists who, using hidden cameras, put their lives on the line to tell the real story of the 2007 uprising in Burma and the subsequent crackdown by the ruling military regime. They now face up to 65 years in prison for simply recording the events in the film.
