Since May 1 (eerily, 3 days before Cyclone Nargis), Fanista launched a campaign called Burma: It Can't Wait with the US Campaign for Burma and the Human Rights Action Center. The site has featured provocative short films starring actors, filmmakers and musicians on the topic of human rights and Burma.
On June 19th, Aung San Suu Kyi’s 63rd birthday. (She shares the same birthday as my daughter, Sara). On that day, people across the web will work together to educate and inspire online users to join and/or donate to the campaign, promoting the idea that freedom is the best birthday present. The slogan is “ASSK WHY IT CAN’T WAIT” - a nod to the acronym for Aung San Suu Kyi’s name, ASSK.
So, if you see people tweeting about ASSK's birthday, it's about the Burma Can't Wait Campaign.
