Send a thought.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's release on the 13th November is very welcome and a first step in the right direction. But this does not signify any political change in the country. There are still more than 2202 political prisoners in Myanmar (Burma.) and uncountable numbers of refugee's living and hiding along the borders and deep into neighbouring countries, further away from their home. None of the repressive laws allowing the dictatorship to detain people without trial and restrict freedom have been repealed following the election on 7th November.
Send a thought to the people of Myanmar, send a thought to the people struggling living as refugees, with no legal rights, in constant fear of detention, which could lead to fatal consequences.
Send a thought.
