Free imprisoned satirists
 
Sign the petition here

For months now, members of the Myanmar thangyat troupe Daung Doh Myo Sat (Peacock Generation) have been imprisoned in Insein Prison for a performance in which they donned military dress. The imprisoned satirical poets are Ko Zeyar Lwin, Ko Paing Ye Thu, Ma Kay Khine Tun, Ko Phoe Thar and Ko Paing Phyo Min.

The Mayangone Township Court has denied the accused bail and has held the troupe members in Insein Prison since 22 April. They could face up to three years in prison

We call for the release of all artists currently imprisoned and a repeal of all legislation which arbitrarily detains those who express themselves artistically. 

Sign our petition calling for the artists' release.
