Burma. We asked you to care. We're asking again.

As you read, someone lays beaten and bloody for the crime of caring too much, for the sin of fighting with ideas not guns. Imprisoned. How can they go on without support? Is this asking too much?

If you can spare some time to walk & talk, open your heart & meet me after the jump.

Free Burma - Been There, Done That, Now What?

Thank You. It worked. We got heard. Even small and simple efforts can make a difference if enough people work together and more than 500,000 people from all over the world did just that.

Now It's Time to Get Counted

Today, October 6, people are marching to protest suppression of dissent in Myanmar and to demonstrate global solidarity with their cause.

The developed world, we who benefit directly or indirectly, willingly or not, from the exploitation of the world's poor have a special obligation to act.

Today in Asia, we had a very good turnout with people in many cities, people who would normally be reluctant to challenge or make public displays, peacefully marching in force in many cities.

Now I ask you, I beg you, to please do the same. Just report to march and be counted, it's a simple, simple thing.

I'm afraid I can't offer very well organized information for each US demonstration, just the following links that can help you find your way.

AVAAZ - Stand With Burma an international site with links for numerous US cities.

US Campaign For Burma a search engine by Postal Code.

I hope you find time to march, it's vital world leaders see the will of people worldwide to act for the welfare of Burmese people, for all oppressed people.

Thank You One Million Times.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
