A little something that you can do...

The true scale of the horrific crackdown on peaceful protestors in Burma is not yet known. Thousands have been arrested, and hundreds killed. We have received reports of crematoriums working through the night on the outskirts of Rangoon.

The first priority for the Burma Campaign UK was to make sure that the world knew what was happening in Burma. The question now is, how will the world respond?

The pressure is working but we are not there yet! The United Nations Security Council has still notagreed on a statement condemning the brutal crackdown, and the European Union has yet to agree on targeted economic sanctions. Now is a critical time, please spare a couple of minutes to take these urgent actions.

The Burma Campaign UK and MTV have joined forces again to call for action by the United Nations Security Council. Visit MTV Burma Action to email the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

Email European Union governments calling on them to agree targeted economic sanctions that will ensure European companies no longer help pay for the guns and the bullets used against peaceful protesters in Burma. Visit: Burma Campaign

Thank you for your support.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
