The group of students who will be protesting outside the Shangri-la Hotel on Monday, 19 Nov 07, will be present at the forum tomorrow to relate what they will be doing at Monday’s protest.

The forum is organised by Sg Human Rights, a new group comprising of Singaporean rights activists.

The international exchange students have taken the courageous step of demonstrating their solidarity with the Burmese people and they want to express this at the ASEAN Summit.

They also want to let the Burmese generals know their outrage of the brutality against peaceful protesters and monks.

They are also other activities at the forum. There will be a greeting card for Burma as well as a petition to the Singapore Government (see www.sghumanrights.org) for all to sign.

Letters and messages from all over the world will be read out during the forum.

Balloons carrying a “Free Burmaā€¯ message will also be released to symbolise our wish to see Burma freed from the clutches of the tyrants.

As you can see this will be an exciting and meaningful event. Come and hear what the international students have to say and give them your support.

Come and let ASEAN know that we want firm action action against Burma.

Come and let the Burmese junta know that we want them to stop their repression.

Come and let the Singapore Government that we want democracy and freedom in our own country.

Come and be part of this landmark event. Bring your friends and relatives.

Tomorrow 2:00 pm at Quality Hotel, Balestier Road.

Remember Wear RED!
