Panty Power Campaign for Burma


From The Guardian-

[Burmese] embassies in the UK, Thailand, Australia and Singapore [and all around the world] have all been targeted by the "Panties for Peace" campaign, co-ordinated by an activist group based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. [In this campaign, activists mail female underwear to Burmese embassies all around the world].

The [maneuver] is a calculated insult to the junta and its leader, General Than Shwe. Superstitious junta members believe that any contact with female undergarments - clean or dirty - will sap them of their power, said Jackie Pollack, a member of the Lanna Action for Burma Committee.

(For those in Melbourne, Australia, they'll be an Panty action at the State Library at 12:30 on Oct. 26. More info HERE).
