Movement Against Article 18

By Movement for Democracy Current Forces  •  December 27, 2012

Protester Hands out Leaflet about Article 18 - Photo © MDCFOn 27 December, the Movement for Democracy Current Forces (MDCF) led a protest calling for abolishment of Article 18 of the Peaceful Assembly and Peaceful Procession Law and Article 505(b) of the Penal Code. Rather than granting freedom of expression, assembly and association, these laws are being used to intimidate, silence and arrest human rights defenders and activists in Burma.

Twenty people walked from Theingyi market across Town Hall and Mingalar Market to Yuzana plaza. They distributed pamphlets about these restrictive laws along the way. See more photos here.
