With the Burmese junta continuing its crackdown on democracy protesters, Amnesty International has organised a Global Day of Action for Burma this Saturday (that’s tomorrow), including protests in Christchurch, Wellington, Dunedin and Palmerston North. Details are:
Christchurch: 12:00 – 15:00, Saturday 6 October, Victoria Square (cnr Colombo and Armagh Sts).
Wellington: 12:00 – 14:00, Saturday 6 October, Civic Square. Wear red!
Dunedin: 12:00 – 14:00, Saturday 6 October, Upper Octagon.
Palmerston North: 14:00 onwards, Saturday 6 October, Cenotaph in The Square.
You can also send a message to the Burmese embassy and members of the Burmese regime, and the petition is still open over at Avaaz. They’re halfway to a million signatures, so if you haven’t already, go add your name.
