Well-known singer and activist Peter Gabriel will host the screening of a film and a discussion on Burma at the United States senate on April 4.

The event, organised by WITNESS, a nonprofit human rights group founded by Gabriel, and the US Campaign for Burma, will also be hosted by senators Dianne Feinstein and Mitch McConnell.

According to a statement released by USCB Gabriel plans to use the event to press US politicians to support the passing of a United Nations Security Council resolution on Burma.

“It is long overdue for the UN Security Council to respond to the deepening crisis in Burma,” said Gabriel in the statement.

“We need people of conscience to act now.”

The video to be screened at the event, ‘Always on the Run: Internally Displaced People in Karen State’ produced by WITNESS’ partner organisation Burma Issues, details the experiences of people forcibly displaced by the Burmese military.
