Subject: Who needs a speaker on Burma?

Dear friends of Burma (USA),

Since last fall, I have been traveling and speaking on the Burma situation =
university, college, and high school campuses throughout the country to
increase people=92s awareness of what=92s going on in Burma and to gain sup=
at the grassroots level movement. Being a student activist and first-hand
witness of the 1988 uprising, I believe that sharing my experience is one o=
the best contributions that I can make to the free Burma movement, which is
now mobilizing not only in the US, but also internationally.=20

Most of the trips I took before were sponsored by Amnesty International
student chapters and local chapters. Now, schools are reopened for the fall=
and I am ready to restart my task for the 1996 school year. =20

Now I'd like to ask your help.  Could you please spread the word to the
people in your community that if their schools or groups would like to brin=
speaker on Burma, I am willing to speak?  I am accessible through the
following address.  I really appreciate your assistance on this matter.=20

Thanking you in advance.
