Burmese exiles to give human rights talk in Welwyn Garden City
TWO Burmese women, currently living in exile in the UK, are set to give a talk in WGC next week about the human rights abuses that are prevalent in their homeland.
Wai Hnin and Moe Bue will be recounting their own personal tales of life under Burma’s oppressive ruling junta at the Focolare Centre in Parkway on Tuesday.
At the event, Wai Hnin is expected to talk about her father, Ko Mya Aye, who was jailed for 65 years after leading a peaceful demonstration against his country’s totalitarian regime in 2007.
The talk has been organised by the Welwyn Hatfield and East Herts branch of Amnesty International.
Chairman Vicky Woodcraft said that, since 1998, the group’s prime focus had been on the “appalling violations of the human rights of the people of Burma”.
