Defend Activist Lena Hendry !
As some of you may be aware, we have been supporting a campaign in defence of Lena Hendry, a Malaysian Human Rights activist who has been found guilty of screening the documentary No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka, allegedly without the permission of the Malaysian Censorship Board. Lena’s arrest and persecution appear to have been a direct result of pressure from government of Sri Lanka officials seeking to suppress the film. She will be sentenced on 22 March, and faces three years in jail and/or a maximum fine of 30,000 Malaysian Ringgit (£5400/$6700). We are calling on the Malaysian authorities to immediately drop the charges against her and overturn the conviction.With Lena’s blessing and support, we are planning a series of pickets at various Malaysian Embassies this coming Thursday 9 March. We would like to invite you to join us for a protest outside the Malaysian High Commission in London (45, Belgrave Square, SW1X 8QT), from 6.00-7.00pm (approx) that day.
Do please let us know by email if you can make it. Email :
