A Very Personal Sacrifice

James Mawdsley, originally from Lancashire in England, came to the attention of the world by highlighting the repressive regime in Burma which has imprisoned him three times. He was tortured, beaten and endured solitary confinement but unlike other Burmese, when he was released he could come back home and freely speak out. Here he talks about his experiences, why he did what he did, and his passionate wish for a Burma free from human rights abuses. Length 32 mins.

Since his return to Britain, James has written a powerful book called "The Heart Must Break - The Fight for Democracy and Truth in Burma." He has worked with Christian Solidarity Worldwide and has set up the Metta Trust for Children’s Education charity - more info. at www.mtce.org
