US Campaign for Burma new film


We are excited to share a great opportunity exclusive to you, our dedicated USCB supporters, a free copy of the brand new film 'Into the Current', a new documentary about Burma's political prisoners. Sign up to host an Arrest Yourself fundraising event and we will send you the new documentary film to screen at your event.

This year, we are showcasing two powerful new documentary films for Arrest Yourself events - 'Burma Soldier' and 'Into the Current', both of which expose the cruel nature of Burma's military dictatorship and shine a much needed spolight on political prisoners.

'Burma Soldier' will debut on HBO2 on May 18, 2011 from 8 - 9:15pm (ET). It features Myo Myint, a former-Burmese soldier-turned-democracy-activist and a former political prisoner. Click here to watch the trailer of 'Burma Soldier'.

If you don't have HBO, we have another new powerful film for you to screen at your Arrest Yourself event, 'Into the Current'. The film tells the story of Burma's political prisoners and the price they pay for speaking truth to power. I encourage you to experience either of these powerful films with your family and friends to help raise awareness and funds to support our campaign to free these courageous men and women of Burma. Click here to watch trailer of 'Into the Current'.

Freedom is the most desired thing for the people of Burma who have been living under brutal militay rule for over four decades. This is particularly true of the 2,073 political prisoners who are silenced because of their courage to stand up to oppression. Help bring the story of each and every one of Burma's 2,073 political prisoners to light by hosting an Arrest Yourself event.

We cannot do it alone, but with your help, we are one step closer to our goal.

In solidarity,

Aung Din
