Urgent Action: Burma Army Arrests Three Journalists
On 26th June, three journalists were arrested by the Burmese Army in Shan State. Lawi Weng, from The Irrawaddy, and Aye Naing and Pyae Bone Naing from Democratic Voice of Burma, have not been seen or heard from since then. Four other people were arrested with them.
Tell Min Aung Hlaing, head of the military, to free the journalists now!
The military don't publish contact details, but Min Aung Hlaing's staff are regularly updating his Facebook and Twitter accounts, and read messages sent to him on Facebook.
Facebook and Twitter are the quickest way we can get the message to him.
Min Aung Hlaing doesn't want the media to report on the human rights violations committed by his troops in ethnic states. Don't let him get away with arresting journalists and covering up human rights abuses.
