Oct. 24th. Aung San Suu Kyi Day. Organize a Protest!

from the Support the Monks' protest in Burma Facebook Group:


October 24th has been designated Aung San Suu Kyi day.

Aung San Suu Kyi is the democratically elected leader of Burma, on the 24th she will have been under house arrest for 12 years.

To mark this at 12 noon in 12 key cities around the world where 12 people will come together wearing Aung San Suu Kyi masks and dressed in white to protest outside Chinese embassies. Why China? Because they can exert the most influence over Burma and so far they have been dragging their feet. Why White? Because that's what political prisoners are made to wear. The 12 peaceful protestors will be chained together.

We're also trying to organsie candle lit vigils in the evening. this is where you come in, PLEASE ORGANISE A CANDLE LIT VIGIL WHERE YOU LIVE to show solidarity with Aung San Suu Kyi and the thousands of political prisoners in Burma.
