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.

Thanks, Sujewa for posting these on Indiewire. I've also sent out e-blasts and have a blog (http://www.goldenphoenixfilms.blogspot.com) that also has info on Burma. This is not just a country in turmoil. It is not a religious war. It is a global crisis in human rights, terror, rape, murder, human trafficking and forced child labor. Burma has the largest child soldier army of 70,000, many of whom are under the age of 12. The killing of monks and innocent civilians who protest in peace for peace and reconciliation is the epitome of tragedy.

No problem GP, doing what I can to help the Burmese people. Looking forward to the protest today, also in Wheaton, MD there will be a candlelight vigil (& donations collecting for USCB) on 10/7, will post about that this weekend.
