Hey

Hey so I'm knew here and what not but have been quite active with the US Campaign for Burma.

One of the ideas that is circulating in my committee is to send letters both to Aung San Suu Kyi and to the Military Generals.

Here is Aung San Suu Kyi's Address....(a pre-written letter is shown below in case you can't think of anything to say *personally i'd try and make it more personal....)

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi
54 University Avenue
Bahan 11201
Yangon Myanmar

Dear Madam,
    The recent events in your esteemed country have been brought to our attention through the mass media and other ways through people who have witnessed the events.  We hereby express our solidarity with the people of your country, in their earnest aspirations for peace, prosperity, and self-determination.
    We have also written to the military officers of the State Peace and Development Council with an appeal from our hearts, that they assure us and all members of the international community of their cooperation on the following items:
      
        1.) Put an end to the acts and policies that increase and/or aggravate the suffering of your people, especially unwarranted arrests, imprisonment, and torture of even those who have only expressed their views in peaceful ways, including Buddhist monks and laypersons.
       2.) Release all of those who have been arrested and imprisoned especially in the last few weeks in the wake of the events of September, and stop all acts of physical and psychological repression of those still detained, including Buddhist monks and laypersons.
       3.) Undertake steps toward national reconciliation and dialogue with all significant sectors of your society, ensuring wide participation toward determining the best ways of moving forward together to bring about peace, socio-economic development, and prosperity.

    In these steps toward national reconciliation and dialogue, we acknowledge your pivotal role, and wish to express our wholehearted support for you in this regard.
    On our part, we also assure you that we will continue to pay attention to what is happening in your esteemed country, and will do our best to support those efforts toward peace and reconciliation and self-determination based on the wide participation of your populace.  We will convey this intention to our communities, and keep vigil with you in this regard.
    We will also continue to communicate these intentions to international leaders through the United Nations, and also to our local, regional, and national leaders, including the elected representatives and Senators in the US Congress, and to the President of the United States, to ensure that you will be supported by the international community in this process of reconciliation and restoration of peace and of furthering the socio-economic development of your esteemed country for the benefit of your people.

Sincerely,

To send this letter, it should cost about 90 cents (make sure that it ways .5 ounces or less.....) and write Air Mail in Red.  or use the stickers that are free at the post office box.  I would also write your address and see if you get written back, my friend did that a couple years ago and received a letter....



And now the Generals

Same deal of 90 cents, air mail in red, one thing though was that the person who wrote this letter said that you did not need to write the zip code on the general letters as that would be like us writing a letter to the president of the united states, and is apparently not needed.
