Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) has a long history of speaking up for people who are persecuted for their faith. CSW’s team of specialist advocates work on over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, to ensure that the right to freedom of religion or belief is upheld and protected. Since the beginning of February 2021 the spotlight has turned on Burma, or Myanmar, a country which does not have a great record of tolerance of minority faiths. After a short period under the democratically-elected government led by Aung San Suu Kyi, the military is now back in charge.
Benedict Rogers, Senior Analyst for South East Asia at CSW, talked to smallVOICE’s Margaret Tooth in March 2021 in the run up to their annual Day of Prayer for Burma. Listen here.
