Stand with the Burmese People!

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.

In a race against time, has created an online petition that targets the dictatorship's main backer, China, in a global advertising campaign, delivering the petition to the UN Secretary-General, advertising it in newspapers around the world, and broadcasting it to the Burmese people via radio. You can sign the petition here:
