"Enough is enough."

Celebrities Join the US Campaign for Burma to Call for Action on Burma at the UN Security Council

Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders on CBS’ Emmy-winning “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) and Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” TV series and films) recently visited the Thailand-Burma border with Jeremy Woodrum, US Campaign for Burma Campaigns Director.

Meeting refugees and valiant aid workers trying to help the people of Burma, they expressed shock over the extensive nature of the atrocities, as well their lack of previous knowledge. Both are eager to get more people in involved in the fight. "One and a half million people have been forced from their homes, women are systematically raped, men and children have been forced into slave labor. It's time to say 'enough is enough',” said Szmanda.
