Burma OUT!! The London Demo (r)

According to Olympic minister in Carr NSW government . The invitation to 200
teams from all continents will be sent out by the IOC HQ in Switzerland on
15 of September. I had a chance to ask him , personally , about Burma team
in Sydney 2000 last Monday 17th of May .

The first target should be IOC HQ in Switzerland not Australia. At the same
time I support demo at Aus com. but you should add your points with the
criticism on ineffective Australian policy toward the regime ( lacking
sanction - boycotts - tough actions) . You should mention your support for
CRPP as the next demo fall on May 27th Ninth Anniversary of 90 elections.

Good luck,
