SEAPA joins free speech advocates around the world in calling for the immediate release of Burmese dissident journalist U Win Tin, who marks the 17th year of his incarceration in one of the world’s most restricted societies. Reporters Sans Frontiers and the Burma Media Association are calling on sympathizers to sign an online petition demanding U Win Tin’s freedom. Win Tin is serving 20 years on a charge of ‘anti-government propaganda’. RSF and BMA are also mounting a fax offensive on 4 July, 2006, targeting major Burmese embassies throughout the world.
