U Gambira Sheds Light On Schapelle Corby Scandal
U Gambira, the leader of the 2007 Saffron Revolution in Burma, has called for the immediate release of Australian woman Schapelle Corby, from Kerobokan Prison in Bali, Indonesia.
Gambira, a former political prisoner of the Burmese military junta, was sentenced to 68 years in prison, but was later pardoned following global outrage and international pressure.
This week, he released a number of birds in Mandalay, in a symbolic and spiritual gesture, to protest at Schapelle Corby’s continued incarceration. He paraded self-made posters and signs, referring to the work of The Expendable Project in exposing the political corruption in Australia, which resulted in Corby’s imprisonment in 2004.
Last week, a formal submission was presented to the United Nations, on behalf of citizens in over 50 nations (see attached PDF). This introduced the substantial volume of material uncovered by researchers and published online (www.expendable.tv/p/expendable-dossier.html). ?
