Posters have been appearing around the traps recently promoting a rally under the title “Show your solidarity – Free Burma” – for those interested, it’s on this Saturday, October 13 at 11am in Civic Square. The listed principles are:
* Support the Burmese people’s struggle for democracy.
* Stop the killing.
* Stop the repression.
* Free the political prisoners.
…which all seems very worthy. The organising group is named as “Canberra Network for Democracy in Burma”, about whom the web seems to divulge very little. A clue is in the listed contacts, which are a committee member of the Australia Mon Association, the general number 6247 7844 for UnionsACT (formerly the ACT Trades and Labour Council), and two individuals with no affiliation listed.
