Action in Support of Burma

I try to keep this blog about my creativity and artistic journey.  But I realise how fortunate I am to have that freedom.  So here’s a rare exception to the rule.  Because it’s important.


Free Burma!

Blog on October 4th in your support of a Free Burma.  You can use banners and graphics from the Free Burma web site


Please consider signing the global petition being orgainsed by to Chinese President Hu Jintao and the UN Security Council:

“We stand alongside the citizens of Burma in their peaceful protests. We urge you to oppose a violent crackdown on the demonstrators, and to support genuine reconciliation and democracy in Burma. We pledge to hold you accountable for any further bloodshed.”

Sign the petition here

More from the Azaaz site: 

“After decades of military dictatorship, the people of Burma are rising – and they need our help. Marches begun by monks and nuns snowballed, bringing hundreds of thousands to the streets. Now the crackdown has begun, but the protests are spreading…

When the Burmese last marched in 1988, the military massacred thousands. If the world stands up and supports their struggle, this time they could win. We’re in a race against time– targeting the dictatorship’s main backer China in a global advertising campaign, delivering the petition to the UN secretary-general and sending the Burmese our support via radio–”


If you are in the UK you can also take action by sending an email to the
authorities via the Amnesty site (UK).

Check your national Amnesty Group to see how you can help


October 6th has been declared a global day of action if you want to do more. Details will be on
