CALL SENATOR LAUTENBERG FOR THE RENEWAL OF SANCTIONS AGAINST BURMA'S REGIME


Thanks to your calls, Senator Menendez has signed on as a co-sponsor to the renewal of the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act! However, Lautenberg is not yet a co-sponsor.

Please call Senator Lautenberg and ask him to cosponsor this important legislation
! Easy instructions here.

The Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act denies hundreds of millions of American dollars from getting into the hands of the Burmese junta and its cronies. Now more than ever, Aung San Suu Kyi and the pro-democracy movement need our help to sustain strong U.S. pressure on the regime.

IMPORTANT!!!
Senator Lautenberg has cosponsored the renewal of Burma sanctions in previous years. The staffer you talk to may not know that, so it is important to tell them. Ask the Senator to continue his support for Aung San Suu Kyi and the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma by again cosponsoring the renewal of the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act (S.J.RES. 17).

DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS:
A. Call Senator Lautenberg's office Today.
Andrea Friedman handles foreign affairs for Senator Lautenberg at: (202) 224-3224.

B. Ask to speak to the foreign affairs staffer, Andrea Friedman (Lautenberg).
Whether you are speaking with the staffer or leaving a message, make 2 things very clear:
1) You are a constituent of his who supports freedom and democracy in Burma.
2) Feel it is important to support Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma. I urge the Senator to co-sponsor S.J.RES. 17--a bill renewing the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act.

C. Let us at USCB know how it went. Email myradah@uscampaignforburma.org.
