D Nyein Lin


D Nyein Lin is a student activist who formerly led the All-Burma Federation of Student Unions during the Buddhist monks demonstrations in 2007.

Political reforms introduced in 2011 brought the release of more than 1000 political prisoners, including many human rights defenders. Today, many formerly imprisoned HRDs face a number of restrictions to their work and risk future persecution. Student activists were not allowed to return to study at their universities, and the Ministry of Home Affairs has refused to issue passports to former political prisoners and prominent HRDs.
