STRIKE WITH THE BEAT
The Burma Spring, one year on. A very special night.
Last year the young people of Burma made a decision. They have had enough, and want their country back. For this they are willing to risk everything. They marched in great numbers, without weapons, and many were killed, beaten, disappeared and tortured. They are determined, and supported by the people.
It has not stopped the military. They have attacked at will, causing thousands to flee across borders, leaving bodies and burnt homes behind. So what will stop them?
This film event is a rare opportunity, as the Director Sai Kyaw Khaing will be with us at his premiere film screening of Strike with the Beat.
We will hear from Prisoner of Conscience, Dr Ma Thida, who is now on the Board of PEN International.
A message is sent from dedicated Burma ‘Freedom from Fear’ activist, and revolutionary, Alan Clements, from Hawaii.
Followed by audience Q&A
Introduced by Thomas Soe and Kerry Wright.
This is your chance to learn exactly what is happening right now, why it is brutal, courageous and extraordinary, and what we can do to assist, from Australia and the world.
