This topic is very relevant to consideration of the way the NGO movement concerned with Myanmar is brought together and linked in advocacy by the Myanmar Campaign Network (MCN). This seminar will explore the role key organisations have contributed towards MCN’s establishment and success. It will show where MCN’s priorities currently stand.

Kate Lee is the Executive Officer of Union Aid Abroad (APHEDA) – Australian People for Health, Education and Development Abroad).  Kate played an important role in the creation of the Myanmar Campaign Network and has a helped ensure that the trade union movement in Australia is well linked to work for the return of democracy and the rule of law to Myanmar.

Tasneem Roc is a campaign manager with MCN.  She is a Karen-Scottish-Australian with a dedication to the restoration of human rights in Myanmar.  She is also an actor and will be well-known to many Australians for her TV roles. 

Michael Sainsbury is a prominent Australian journalist who was based in Beijing and Bangkok for 11 years with a long record of reporting on events in Myanmar and elsewhere in East and South East Asia.  His reporting is regularly found in Crikey as well as other publications.

A question and answer session will be conducted after the presentation. For more information about AMI, please visit: aummi.edu.au/.

***NOTE: Zoom can work very well, but it poses difficulties for people with a poor internet connection. So, people from Myanmar (or elsewhere) who might have a poor internet connection or low bandwidth should turn off the video mode and listen to the seminar. You may be able to switch on the video from time to time just to see who is speaking, but definitely don’t use the video mode if you wish to speak yourself.  You can also pose questions using the chat function.  The whole seminar will be uploaded later on the AMI website and Facebook page.
