Release Reporters Who Were Unjustly Arrested

Target: Aung San Suu Kyi, State Counselor of Myanmar

Goal: Release Reuters reporters who were unjustly arrested by the Myanmar government.

Two Reuters journalists were arrested after pursuing a story of murder, rape, and violence perpetrated by Myanmar’s military. This is one more blatant violation of human rights by Myanmar’s military and government.

Without any evidence, these two reporters, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, were accused of illegally obtaining official documents. However, due to a lack of freedom of information in the country, all sources available to reporters are technically illegal. These journalists were merely arrested for doing their jobs and reporting the truth.

Lone and Oo are not the first reporters unfairly arrested and will not be the last if steps are not taken to protect the freedom of the press in Myanmar. Sign the petition and demand that the Reuters reporters be released and journalists be allowed to do their jobs and report the facts.


Dear Counselor Suu Kyi,

Two Reuters journalists have now joined the growing number of reporters unjustly incarcerated in your nation. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were simply trying to report on the horrific human rights abuses in your country. Now, their own rights have been abused.

Journalists should not be punished for doing their jobs. I demand you follow the cries of the international community by releasing the reporters and making your nation one where the press can report without fear.
