care2 – Take Action!

A Celebration of Women,

How Many politicians does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Four. One to change it and the other three to argue about it.

Okay, this joke may not be that funny,
but it could land you in jail in Myanmar. Take, for instance, Zarganar, the most
famous comedian and satirist in the Southeast Asian nation notorious for its
poor human rights record. He’s currently serving a 35 year sentence largely for
mocking the government.

Urge Myanmar
to release Zarganar. »

Zarganar’s biting political satire and activism have long gotten him in trouble with the government.
He spent 5 years in prison in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, has had a number of his films
censored was even banned from participating in the entertainment industry all together in 2006.

Call on
Myanmar to free Zarganar. »


Thanks for Taking Action!
