I am organising a peaceful demonstration at BONDI BEACH this Sunday
14th at 11am to support our Burmese brothers and sisters in their
struggle for democracy and freedom and to give a voice to those who
don't have one. The Burmese government need to know that the
international community are watching!
So come along this Sunday to BONDI BEACH - we will be gathering on the
grass in-between the two surf clubs, next to the kids park. Show support
to the Burmese monks by wearing saffron/red and bring a ribbon to tie to
trees. Drums welcome.
Bring a picnic and your families/friends.
Please spread the word.
