CSW Burma Protest Weds August 8th In London
On Wednesday, 8 August, CSW will remember the 19th anniversary of the nationwide pro-democracy uprising in Burma in which an estimated 3,000 peaceful demonstrators were brutally gunned down by the Burmese military. We (CSW) are writing to ask you to join with the Burmese community in exile in London in a protest at the Burmese Embassy to mark the occasion.
The theme of the protest is Power to the People. The organisers have asked people to gather at 12.30pm in
This occasion is one of the most important events in the year for the Burmese democracy movement. It would be a valuable gesture of solidarity if you could join with them on 8 August. If you are not able to be present on the day, please join us in praying for Burma , for the families of those who died in 1988, and for freedom, justice and peace for all the peoples of Burma .
