International Day of Protest for Myanmar

Details here.

If the history of the former Soviet Union shows us anything it's that protests aren't always in vain: though if China would give less support to the Burmese economy that might speed things up. As it is, any UN resolution that, say, the US proposes to impose sanctions may well get vetoed by CHina. While it might be good for the American delegation to understand how the rest of the world feels when it routinely vetoes any censure motions against Israel, the people who suffer will be the Burmese. And they've suffered enough.
