Additional Information

In Burma (Myanmar) a non-violent pro-democracy movement is working to end the misrule of the country for the past 15 years by military dictators. In the last few weeks, various protests, Buddhist monk led marches and other actions gained international attention due to the size of the number of people involved. The Burmese military junta violently cracked down on the peaceful protesters, beating many, also shooting and killing an unknown number of protesters. Thousands are imprisoned at the moment, with their fates unknown to friends and family. However, the movement for democracy in Burma continues, within that nation and throughout the rest of the world. The 10/7/07 candle light vigil at the International Buddhist Center in Wheaton is an opportunity to celebrate the non-violent protesters and their bravery, and to show our solidarity with the valiant struggle currently being undertaken by the Burmese people.

And in order to further support the Burmese movement for democracy, it will be possible, for those who wish to do so, to donate money to the non-profit US Campaign for Burma at the vigil event. Here is a little bit about USCB:

"The United States Campaign for Burma is a U.S.-based membership organization dedicated to empowering grassroots activists around the world to bring about an end to the military dictatorship in Burma. Through public education, leadership development initiatives, conferences, and advocacy campaigns at local, national and international levels, USCB works to empower Americans and Burmese dissidents-in-exile to promote freedom, democracy, and human rights in Burma and raise awareness about the egregious human rights violations committed by Burma’s military regime."
