Solidarity with the people of Burma, Friday 28 September!

September 27, 2007 at 6:00 pm (Civil liberties, Free Speech, Human rights, Jim D, liberation, thuggery, unions)

Yes, I know it’s short notice, but readers in London should do their damnest tomorrow, to attend the TUC’s demonstration outside the ‘Embassy of the Union of Myanmar’, 12noon to 1pm. If you can’t make it tomorrow, there should be continuing demos every lunchtime outside the embassy, at the behest of the Federation of Trade Unions of Burma and the Movement for Freedom and Democracy.

There are some signs that the murderous, torturing bastards who rule Burma are quite concerned about what the outside world thinks, so it’s just possible that our actions could make a real difference.

    Jim,

    You’re just playing in to the hands of the warmongers etc.

    No, I agree with you absolutely. If i wasn’t 100 miles away and at work I might have gone.

    Today’s ‘Morning Star’ front page headline: ‘Activists call for Myanmar intervention’.

    Well, I went to the protest outside the Embassy today. I am still drying as it pissed down constantly!! There was 100+ people, lots of Amnesty placards, 1 Unison banner and lots of ITF (International Transport Federation Workers’) placards as well.

    Anyway, there are some pics of the event on Stroppyblog:
