Burmese exile news channel go to Stockholm

Mizzima News, a Burmese news agency in exile in India and Thailand, went to Stockholm to visit Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) on 29 April to talk about Burma’s emerging independent media, and the importance of media in exile to report on countries where press freedom is violated.
Attendees can catch “Burma VJ”, a documentary co-produced by Mizzima’s own Soe Myint on the power of protests in Burma. It’s also where Frank La Rue, the UN’s special rapporteur on free expression, will be before heading to Doha for UNESCO’s main event.
