The extraordinary Solidarity Myanmar concert in Dunedin is raising funds and amplifying the voices of people resisting military rule.
When your country is in turmoil, you do what you can to help.
All the way from Dunedin New Zealand comes an extraordinary multimedia event to show solidarity and aroha for the people of Myanmar as they stand against a murderous military regime which overthrew the democratically-elected government on February 1.
Nationwide defiance continues despite the brutal crackdown that has left people fearful, exhausted and desperate. As of May 26, 828 deaths at the hands of the military regime have been verified, including more than 70 children, and 5441 people have been arrested, charged or detained in unknown locations. Violence by junta armed forces is escalating daily, despite diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis.
The Solidarity Myanmar concert is a special shout out of aroha (love) and support to the people of Myanmar fighting for their lives, freedom, democracy and peace.

Solidarity Myanmar at the Dunedin Town Hall, New Zealand, on 27 May 2021 was a moving show of aroha and support for the people of Myanmar fighting for freedom, democracy and peace.
Organised by the Dunedin Myanmar Community in just two months, this special show was realised by the performers, technicians, volunteers and organisers giving their talents, time and energy pro bono.
Attended by a warm audience of nearly 500 people the Solidarity Myanmar concert achieved all three aims which were to amplify the voices of people in Myanmar, raise awareness of the crisis and raise funds for Myanmar’s democracy movement, specifically Mutual Aid Myanmar https://www.mutualaidmyanmar.org.
The donation of approx. NZ $15,000 will be made to Mutual Aid Myanmar when final accounts are processed.
We appreciate your support and thanks again for getting involved and helping to make this happen.
