In 1962 a military coup lead by General Ne Win saw Burma, an isolated Buddhist country
in South-East Asia, come under the power of one of the world's most brutal regimes.
For the past five decades, thousands of people have been arrested, tortured and given long
prison sentences for openly expressing their beliefs. Today, more than 2,000 political prisoners
including monks, students, journalists, lawyers, elected Members of Parliament and over
300 members of Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition party, The National League for Democracy,
are incarcerated in horrendous conditions in Burma's notorious prisons.

In Burma and accross the world, hundreds of former political prisoners have come
together to raise awareness of the tragic plight of their colleagues still detained in jail.
Abhaya: Burma's Fearlessness is part of an international appeal for their liberation.

Photographed standing with their right hand raised, palm out-turned facing the camera, the name
of a current political prisoner is shown written on their hand. The sacred Buddhist gesture of Abhaya,
"Fear Not", is not only an act of silent protest, but also one of remembrance and fearlessness.

"The people featured in this book have all had to learn to face their fears squarely during the decades
they have passed in the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma. Their commitment has
been their courage. It is important that they and what they stand for should not be forgotten, that
their suffering as well as their aspirations should be remembered. James Mackay has contributed
greatly towards this vital remembrance, which is essential if our world is to become a progressively
safer, kinder home for humanity."

"I hope that all who read this book will be encouraged to do everything they can to gain the freedom
of political prisoners in Burma and to create a world where there are no political prisoners."
