What connects London and Burma?
On Saturday 11th June, I will be taking part in a sponsored walk, 15 miles across London with a fantastic team of our supporters, volunteers and staff for our Burma Tour - along the route we'll be hearing about Burmese places of interest in London.
Joe Bushby, Nwaee Naee Aye, Louie Tham and Viktorija Kos are part of our team of supporters on the walk!
As you read this, there are over 100,000 Rohingya forced to live in squalid camps, driven from their homes and facing desperate conditions. They are unable to leave, unable to work, unable to send their children to school or even to walk on the same roads as other residents in Arakan State.
It's not just the Rohingya who need our help. The political prisoners still behind bars need our help. Like Lahpai Gam, an ethnic Kachin farmer illegally detained since 2012 and serving a 21-year prison sentence.
And in the Shan and Kachin States, the villagers that the Burmese army continues to attack need our help.
We have seen many welcome changes, but there is still so much to do. We must make sure no-one is left behind.
Please support us to continue the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma.
