Wear RED this Friday!
We are asking students across the country to organize their campuses this Friday, October 5th in support of the people of Burma!
Wear a red shirt, organize speakers, booths with information, concerts - whatever you want - this Friday to show support for the half a million peaceful protesters in Burma (Myanmar), a country in Southeast Asia ruled by a ruthless military regime. Burma’s monks, who wear red and maroon colored robes, have led the protests this past week.
The military has responded by massacring hundreds of monks and civilians, as well as brutally torturing and arresting them. With the monks being killed and detained, the students in Burma are standing up now to lead the fight.
Speak out to stop the massacre! We are asking you to wear red to demonstrate that students everywhere care about the situation in Burma.
