BONDI BEACH
Date: SUNDAY OCTOBER 14

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.

In peace,
Edwina Hart

This is not a political rally and we are not connected to any organization except our own S.O.B.B.S. Support our Burmese Brothers and Sisters.
