Burma Cyclone


Latest news: Aung San Suu Kyi ‘forbidden from helping Cyclone victims.’ by karenzr

U.S. Campaign for Burma has sent word that Aung San Suu Kyi, the pro-democracy leader who has been under house arrest for more of the last two decades, is fine but her house was damaged in the cyclone.

Excerpt:

<< She is still under arrest and forbidden from helping Cyclone victims. >>

The NY Times did a story in last week about the campaign’s new Web drive to draw attention to the struggle for democracy in Burma. Strategy? Use celebrities, including ‘Juno’ star Ellen Page, and ‘brand’ Aung San Suu Kyi.

In other weird news, Kim Kardashian has also done a PSA for the campaign and she blogged about it here.
