Aung San Suu Kyi And The Brighton Festival

EDM number 1739 in 2010-12, proposed by Valerie Vaz on 26/04/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Asia, Cultural heritage and Politics and Government.

That this House welcomes Daw Aung San Suu Kyi as guest director of the 2011 Brighton Festival; notes that although Daw Aung San Suu Kyi will not attend the festival she plays a significant role in inspiring the programme through her plea to `use your liberty to promote ours'; congratulates the Festival organisers for their choice of guest director and planning of a wide-ranging and vibrant programme; looks forward to a dynamic celebration of arts, culture and freedom over the three weeks of the Festival; and urges the Government to maintain pressure on the Burmese regime to free the more than 2,000 political prisoners still in detention and to move towards free and fair democracy in Burma.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
