From a USCB e-mail passed on to me today by a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk in Wheaton, MD:
"We are calling upon the one country that has military, economic, and diplomatic leverage over Burma to do something. That country is China. As host of the 2008 Olympics, it is completely hypocritical for China to be such strong supporters of the human rights-abusing military regime in Burma."
See you at the protest & march tomorrow.
