In 2007 members of the group took part in the mass anti-government protests that swept through Burma. The uprising was brought to an end in a violent crackdown by the military junta. Veteran activists and group members Htay Kywe and Mie Mie were arrested along with younger member Zaw Htet Ko Ko. Htay Kywe and Mie Mie were sentenced to 65 years in prison, Zaw Htet Ko Ko received an 11-year sentence.

UPDATE DECEMBER 2009

Zaw Htet Ko Ko and two other prisoners of conscience are in need of immediate medical treatment. The three men have all been denied adequate medical treatment. Zaw Htet Ko Ko has been suffering from stomach pain and has lost a significant amount of weight. He has received some medical treatment for his problem, but it is not clear whether the treatment is sufficient or appropriate. He also has high blood pressure.
