Wear Red for Burma this Friday September 27, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Democracy, Event, Human Rights, International.
- More Burmese feared dead in today’s shoot-out in Rangoon.
- Al-Jazeera reports receiving news that a foreign photojournalist has been shot and killed while covering the protests.
- Burmese embassy in Kuala Lumpur is said to have stopped processing visas and only taking applications.
On 28th September 2007, the Burmese democracy activists are asking the international community to wear a RED shirt or top, in solidarity with those currently engulfed in the fight of their lives in Burma against the most despicable regime, which our government had supported since 1997 when it allowed Burma to join ASEAN.
This simple act of solidarity will further inflame the hopes and strength of those who have struggled and resisted peaceably for 20 years now.
We are at crossroads now. It’s now or never.
There will be a demonstration tomorrow in KL
and a candlelight vigil in the evening. More details to follow.
