US Campaign for Burma Philly Artists Against Censorship: A Liberty Event‏

PHILLY ARTISTS AGAINST CENSORSHIP:
A LIBERTY EVENT



Please join us in raising awareness and raising money for the U.S. Campaign for Burma and our work to free Burma's 1,994 political prisoners on Thursday, August 25, 2011 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

Last November, we all witnessed, to our joy, the release of Burma's democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. However, we must remind ourselves that the job is not done, and the hard part has just begun. Almost 2,000 political prisoners still remain languishing behind bars in prisons across Burma facing torture, inhumane treatment, inadequate medical care and abuse at the hands of the military authorities everyday.

Help us in our efforts to honor Burma's 1,994 unsung heroes. Join us in using our liberty to promote that of Burma's political prisoners. "As a poet and writer, I value my creative freedom. The people of Burma deserve theirs too" said Michelle Tooker, an organizer of Philly Artists Against Censorship: A Liberty Event.
