Actually, I'd say the situation on Myanmar / Burma is exactly the OPPOSITE of fluff -- which is why I don't think the red shirt meme ALONE is powerful enough without ALSO taking further action (calling your senator, etc.)...

My frustration with this kind of "ribbons for the troops" activism lies not with the people who (like you) realize it's only the tip of the actionable iceberg, but with those who believe that wearing a ribbon / Livestrong bracelet / red shirt / etc. is ENOUGH OF AN ACTION BY ITSELF to result in change.

Thanks for your clarification! Situations like these get me emotional and frustrated too ...

Free Burma!

Free Burma!
International Bloggers' Day for Burma on the 4th of October

International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“.

Hi Beth,

Thanks for sharing this info about Burma in the social media world. You might also want to check out Burma content on, specifically, a group promoting a new documentary called "The Road": Lots of good stuff going on there.

Good Happens:
