From Burma to B.C.

Thanks for your coverage on the fake elections in Burma. Canadian Friends of Burma are holding protests November 6 in many Canadian cities.
Here in Calgary, we will have a table at the Peace Fair November 6 at St. David's United church, with Karen, Burmese, Mon folks explaining the refugee and election situation. Our group also advocates and sponsors Burmese and Karen refugees.
