Prison Map in Burma

Prisons in Burma There are 44 prisons in Burma. In November 2008, the regime started to transfer political prisoners to jails all across Burma, making it very difficult for their loved ones to visit and provide essential food and medicines. The most high profile activists have been transferred to the most remote prisons, which is a new psychological strategy by the regime designed to cut them off from their family support system. In previous years, the most high profile political prisoners were held under tight security in Rangoon’s notorious Insein prison.

Palm Campaign 2015

Even though I am free I am not. This was the message the groundbreaking 2010 photography campaign sought to convey to the world. The message that the burgeoning road to freedom in Burma would be forever blocked while political prisoners remained. Freedom is not solely liberation from prison. It is also the need for a free country, a Burma where political freedoms and civil liberties are respected and there no longer exist political prisoners. This photo campaign, initiated by award winning documentary journalist James MacKay and The Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP), in conjunction with the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB), demonstrated the solidarity and commitment to each other amongst former and current political prisoners. 160 former prisoners were photographed and the event was debuted at the headquarters of Amnesty International in London in June 2010.
