July Newsletter 2023

Our latest newsletter includes a report on our recent event, a presentation by Mike Reed on the AIUK report - Israel's Apartheid against the Palestinians. Mike is very willing to give this presentation to interested groups so please contact Evelyn at for further information.

There is also an opportunity to send a letter to the Reverend Hkalam Samso, a political prisoner and one of around 22,000 people arrested by the Burmese/Myanmar Military over the past two years. Many still remain in jail in appalling conditions.

Reverend Hkalam Samson is the Chairman of the Kachin National Consultative Assembly and is a prominent and outspoken Christian leader in Burma. He is also a well-respected community leader and the former President of the Kachin Baptist Convention. He was arrested at Mandalay International Airport in December 2022 on his way to get medical treatment in Thailand.   He was charged with criminal defamation, unlawful association, and charges under the Counter-Terrorism Law. He is now serving six years in prison. Information about what t include in your letter and the prison address are in the newsletter.
