Freedom Writ Large – English PEN – Burma

From English PEN:

Aung San Suu Kyi, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, has spent most of the last eighteen years under house arrest in Burma. Her example continues to inspire other Burmese writers, whose names are rarely celebrated. John Pilger will be joined by other Aung San Suu Kyi supporters including Maureen Lipman and Rhys Ifans to pay tribute to all those writers of conscience in Burma whose voices have been silenced. New footage of interviews with Burmese writers living on the Thai border will also be shown. All proceeds will go to the Writers in Prison programme.
