Full press release
Amnesty are once again organising the much loved 'Comics vs. Critics' football match. Last year the comedians were over the moon with their 3 - 2 win at Meadowbank stadium.
In a game billed as 'such a grudge match they had to get Amnesty International to referee', most players showed respect for each others' human rights and played their hearts out for jailed Burmese comedian, Zarganar.
