Myanmar's opposition leader and Nobel prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi, has seen the inside of the infamous Insein (pronounced "insane") prison.
Aung San Suu Kyi's last birthday was spent in the infamous Insein (pronounced "insane") prison – notorious for its foul conditions and unrelenting use of torture.
Today, more than 2,100 political prisoners are being held in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), many of whom are hidden away in the prison's darkest corners.
But in honor of Suu Kyi's 65th birthday on June 19th, we're doing all we can to fill those corners with light and expose Myanmar's treatment of political dissents for what it really is…insane.
Help drive our ongoing work to protect human rights in Myanmar.
Less than a month ago, a youth member of the former National League for Democracy, the political party headed by Aung San Suu Kyi, had his sentence in Insein prison extended by 10 years.
Life without human rights is insane!
Myanmar's Insein Prison, where thousands of political prisoners are believed to be held.
one offense - distributing a portrait of Aung San Suu Kyi.
This blatant manipulation of laws and outright injustice has got to stop!
We've fought tirelessly on behalf of myanmar for the past 2 decades and such abuse of human rights only fuels our desire to bring violators to justice once and for all.
Our team of researchers and experts are observing Myanmar closely and reporting back whenever there are new developments and opportunities for action.
And given that national elections are planned for later this year, our teams are remaining particularly vigilant to ensure that no person is improperly detained during election-related crackdowns without setting off major alarms across the human rights spectrum.
