Three things we can do to help the real leaders of Burma

It’s frustrating and scary, isn’t it, seeing real leaders, unarmed, putting their lives on the line on the streets of Burma at the moment.

“Please use your liberty to help promote ours,” said Aung San Suu Kyi. So, here are some things we can do to help. They may not feel like much, but better than doing nothing:

If you are in the UK

Three things we can do here
1. Send an email to the UK Prime Minister

2. Sign the ‘Free Burma’ petition

3. Donate to the free Burma campaign.

You can do all three on the link above.

If you are in the US, American websites expressing concern over Burma are recommending you email your congressmen and other representatives to ask them to step up pressure on the regime. The Burma Freedom Campaign has links allowing you to email President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice if you click here and then scroll down to the bottom of the page.

If you are elsewhere in the world, Google ‘support Burma’ to browse events you may want to take part in, such as candlelight vigils, demonstrations outside embassies…

The link above contains other courses of action if you want to support the people of Burma longer term as they try and take the lead, at such enormous risk to themselves, in freeing themselves. Anita (see below) would be shouting loudest right now in their support. In her absence, we need to shout louder ourselves.
