You are here: Home / Projects / Burma


Since 1962 Burma has been ruled by a military junta which suppresses all dissent. They stifle the voices and activities of human rights defenders, independent journalists, members of the Buddhist clergy, humanitarian activists and of numerous artists. Many are now imprisoned or banned from working simply for their opposition to the government, for peacefully demonstrating or for engaging in humanitarian activities. The Cinema for Peace Foundation initiated the film documentary "This Prison Where I Live" and started a petition in order to support artists in Burma and to free the comedian Zarganar who was in prison from 2007 - 2011.
