Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Aung Pwint is a Burmese journalist and documentary maker notable for his 1999 imprisonment by the State Peace and Development Council, Burma's military government, on charges of fax-machine ownership and "sending news." Aung Pwint was first arrested by authorities in 1967 and detained for a year; Human Rights Watch attributes this arrest to his "contacts with the rebellious student movement." In 1978, he was arrested again and held this time for seventeen months. During 1988's widespread pro-democracy protests against the rule of General Ne Win, Aung Pwint acted as joint secretary for the People's Peaceful Demonstration Committee of the Delta region. Following the repression of the protests, he joined a media group to produce videos and calendars documenting the lives of Burma's ordinary people. These documentaries were banned by the SPDC in 1996 "because they were considered to show too negative a picture of Burmese society and living standards"
