Burma OUT!! The London Demo
The first ever London demo : Burma Out!
To the sound of gongs, bells and trumpets. The first ever
London demonstration to oust Burma from the Sydney 2000
Olympic Games took place on Friday afternoon outside the
Australian High Commission.
Representatives of five different organisations and unions
were present on a warm day under a cloudy sky. Also in
attendence were members of the press corp and the BBC.
The police not only kept a low profile but were interested
that their own hard work to throw illegal drugs off our streets
was now being supported by a genuine People's War on drugs.
After the demo, with the organisers smiling and somewhat
fortified by the local brews, met to exchange ideas and decide
the next steps in this long campaign . And later to meet with a
team of lawyers who, as they work close by the Aus High
Commission, are now interested in bringing their legal expertise
into this fun filled fray.
In a rapid effort to bring more publicity and power to its
own campaigning. Burma Out! may soon link with the UK
official agencies. The People's war against drugs from Burma
has been asked to submit a formal proposal to the UK's anti
drug decision makers in Westminster.. This, along with the
requested proposal to the head of the DEA in Washington
DC, has now been completed.
