BLOGGERS FOR BURMA:UNITI PER LA BIRMANIA
PubbLico un appello,già postato da Angela nei gruppi di discussione CAMMINA CON LA BIRMANIA.L’appello è in inglese e contiene una petizione da firmare,viene da un’associazione AAVAZ che si occupa attivamente della difesa dei diritti umani,in tutto il pianeta.Per saperne di più,vi rimando al sito dell’organizzazione(cliccate sul nome) e intanto qui pubblico alcune informazioni che ho tratto da lì.
As major new challenges like climate change and escalating religious conflict threaten our common future, people from around the world are coming together to take global politics into their own hands. Avaaz.org is a community of global citizens who take action on the major issues facing the world today. Our aim is to ensure that the views and values of the world’s people — and not just political elites and unaccountable corporations — shape global decisions. Avaaz.org members are taking action for a more just and peaceful world and a vision of globalization with a human face.In our inter-connected world, the actions of political leaders and corporations are having a profound impact on all of us. To match the power and reach of global leaders and borderless corporations, Avaaz.org members are building a powerful movement of citizens without borders. As citizens without borders, we might not have the resources of governments, corporations or the media, but working together we can bring together millions of people around the world and make global public opinion really count on major global issues like poverty, climate change, human rights and global security.
Using the latest technology, Avaaz.org empowers ordinary people from every corner of the globe to directly contact key global decision-makers, corporations and the media. By signing up to receive updates from Avaaz.org, members receive emails and text messages alerting them to new campaigns and opportunities to act online and offline, and to make a real difference on pressing global issues.

MA ORA VI POSTO L’ARTICOLO DI ANGELA:
“Scusate ma sono giornatine niente male per me queste e non riesco afar nemmeno uno straccio di traduzione decente, ve la mollo ininglese:
Dear Avaaz member,
What Avaaz members have done so far:
789,479 petition signatures, hand-delivered to UK Prime Minister andUN Security Council member Gordon Brown. (Video here.)
$315,000 raised for the Burmese democracy movement.
33,403 emails to EU leaders urging targeted sanctions.
1,952 messages sent to Singapore’s Foreign Minister George Yeo.
100+ protests in cities worldwide against the Burmese regime.
1 global ad campaign, including a full-page ad in the Financial Timespushing China to act.
If they haven’t yet, ask friends tosign the petition!Burma’s streets are quiet–no mass demonstrations, no riot police. Butthe calm is an illusion. Change is coming to Burma, and we are all apart of it.
Here’s where we stand: The regime has massacred, tortured, andintimidated its critics at home, and continues its night arrests andbrutal interrogations. But while it has momentarily silenced thedomestic opposition, its attacks on the revered Buddhist monks ignitedan anger amongst the Burmese people that cannot be extinguished.Contacts inside Burma tell us that the demonstrators are steadilyregrouping, even in the face of the deadly crackdown.
And around the world, the roar has grown deafening–so powerful thatgovernments are scrambling for ways to bring new pressure to bear onthe junta. Government leaders and the media have publicly credited theoutcry of global civil society. Look at the statistics in the box onthe right to see how, working alongside allies around the world, Avaazmembers have begun to make a difference.
Many Burmese members of Avaaz have written in. Here’s a note from oneof them–Trisa, now living abroad:
I am one of the 8888 uprising generation. Since the September uprisingin Burma, I can’t get good night sleep. I can’t contact my remainingfamilies and friends if they are ok… The voice of the world is verypowerful. I have heartfelt thank you for all the supporters. Yourvoice can change our lives!
And here’s a note from an Avaaz member, Lynn in London, who joined agroup of Burmese monks to hand-deliver the Avaaz petition–containedin a big red box–to UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, a permanentmember of the UN Security Council, on the steps of 10 Downing Streetlast week:
When I put my hand on the red box, which held the 753,000 signaturesfrom around the world collected by Avaaz, I imagined the outrage ofthe many people from every country in the world, every culture, everyrace, and every religion, contained within this box which was about tobe presented to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. I thoughtabout what it might mean for these Burmese monks whose religiousbrothers far away had been hurt and mistreated by the crackdown, toknow that in every country in the world, people were supporting them.
And here’s what May Ng, a Burmese writer, editorialized on the newssite Mizzima after seeing our petition:
As their voices have been heard and their faces have been seen, AungSan Suu Kyi and the people of Burma will no longer be alone.Avaaz.org, whose mission is to ensure that the views and values of theworld’s people shape global decisions, will make sure that Burmesepeople will have a voice over their own fate from now on.
Avaaz will share the struggle of the Burmese people until the struggleis won. Our goals are constant: transition, dialogue, reconciliation,and democracy. We will also continue to take action together on manyurgent issues, from climate change to peace in the Middle East tohuman rights–but we will not turn from the cause of the Burmesepeople. We believe that every human life has equal value, whether inBerlin, Beijing or Rangoon.
As Aung San Suu Kyi once urged, we will use our freedom to promotetheirs.

PS: 52 years ago today, the UN charter enshrined “the principle ofequal rights and self-determination of peoples.” Twelve years agotoday, Aung San Suu Kyi was imprisoned. And today, in key citiesaround the world, protesters held a new wave of protests; the firstshipment of supplies, paid for by Avaaz members, left for Burma–andthe junta agreed to re-admit Ibrahim Gambari, the U.N. envoy who isworking to build a dialogue between the regime and the opposition,earlier than previously announced. It’s been a long struggle, but themost important ones always are.
