Aung Htet Naing

HRD, Member
All Burma Federation of Student Unions

Aung Htet Naing is a Coordinator of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the All Burma Federation of Student Unions. He has worked for students rights and for human rights in general. Many members of his organisation were arrested after attending protests against the controversial National Student Bill and they suffered abuses while they were in prison.


Burma's new law on freedom of assembly, falls short of international human rights standards, requiring protestors to seek permission to demonstrate five days in advance and submit their slogans for state approval. If the protesters deliver speeches which are viewed as damaging the state by “doing anything to causes fear or disturbance”, they can face criminal charges and six months imprisonment.
