Bergen for Burma – your voice counts!

Rally to support Burma, Torgalmenningen, Saturday November 3rd, 1 p.m.

The­re are signs of pro­gress in the work for democra­tic reform in Bur­ma both natio­nal­ly and inter­na­tio­nal­ly. For­mer Nor­we­gi­an Pri­me minis­ter Kjell Mag­ne Bon­de­vik has asked the cur­rent Minis­ter of finan­ce Kris­tin Hal­vor­sen to wit­hdraw invest­ments of the Nor­we­gi­an petro­le­um fund from oil com­pa­nies ope­ra­ting in Bur­ma. French For­eign Minis­ter Ber­nard Kouch­ner has pro­po­sed an inter­na­tio­nal fund to pro­vi­de Bur­ma eco­no­mic incen­ti­ves for allowing democra­tic reform. The Burme­se regi­me also has com­mu­ni­cated with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. 
 
The latest news from Bur­ma reve­al that pro­tests against the mili­ta­ry jun­ta is back on the stre­et. Recent­ly 100 mon­ks demon­strated against the mili­ta­ry regi­me in the northern part of the coun­try. They are sig­nal­ling that the­re is more to come. Con­tri­bute to keep the atten­tion of the world directed towards Bur­ma by joi­ning our demon­stra­tion the coming Satur­day 1 p.m. at Torg­al­men­nin­gen. The­re will be appeals and a qui­et march around the squa­re behind the ban­ner of the democracy move­ment. Dress in somet­hing red, and make it known that also Ber­gen sup­ports free­dom and democracy in Bur­ma!
