The Children of the Imprisoned

For anyone who is interested, tune into CSRfm tonight at 6pm to listen to the radio documentary I made for my final project. It investigates the way in which Burmese exiles (the children of the imprisoned and former political prisoners) now living in the UK are still controlled by the military regime. Many exiles who continue campaigning for change when they leave the country have their phone calls bugged and their actions monitored.

Amnesty International meeting on Tuesday

On Tuesday 13th Oct we are holding an Amnesty International Society meeting at 5.15pm in PK-104 (Pilkington building, ground floor). It will only be for around half an hour and we will chat about what Amnesty is and does and our plans for the year.

Amnesty International is a human rights group, so if you are interested in human rights activism then this could be the society for you (it is also an area that is important for us as journalists).
