Free the VJs

Burma VJ tells the story of the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) and their role in the battle for a free and democratic Burma. The DVB and individual activists in this film took a great personal risk to get this story out to the world – as a result of this project, a number of them are currently incarcerated.
