US Campaign for Burma U2 Tour
U.S CAMPAIGN FOR BURMA PARTNERS WITH U2
The U.S. Campaign for Burma is happy to again be working with U2 this summer on their 360° tour. Our grassroots members have been active in engaging concert goers and building support for the cause across the U.S. Thanks to all our members and volunteers so far and the ones in the cities to come!
On Wednesday, June 22nd, twelve U.S. Campaign for Burma members arrived at U2’s 360° tour performance in Baltimore, Maryland with the goal of raising awareness about both human rights violations in Burma and Aung San Suu Kyi’s fight for democracy.
John Baumann, the team leader for the Baltimore concert said, "It was great to be at the U2 concert not just because it was a good show, but because a stadium full of people got a few moments of education and inspiration about Burma from Bono onstage and from the U.S. Campaign for Burma members." John hopes that thousands learn about Burma at these concerts.
Along with members of Amnesty International and the ONE Campaign, USCB volunteers canvassed the crowd outside of the concert venue for several hours, working to get petition signatures up until moments before the concert start time.
We are very thankful for the committed volunteers and our faithful members for all their time and support. Let us keep up the good work!!!
In gratitude and solidarity,
Myra and USCB team

I'm author of History in a Year by the Conservative Voice aka History of the World in a Year by the Conservative Voice.
I'm the Conservative Voice.
I'm looking to make contact with those who might use my skill.
I have an m-audio mobile pre amp fed by the audiotechnica 2041sp condensor mic pack. Prior to 15/4/06, I'd used a Shure sm-58 that required a nuclear blast to register a sound or the internal mic of my aged imac, which has a penchance to recording my breathing. I also used a Griffin itrip, until the community convinced me it was not hiding my talent as well as the other mics.
I am a Writer and an occasional Math Teacher (Sir, what's the occasion?). I like to sing, having no instrumental talent (cannot even clap in time, and yes, I'm aware singing badly IS obnoxious).
I have performed the finale to Les Miserables before an audience of 500. I have also sung before a similar audience (students, parents) renditions of 'I Will' (Beatles), 'Mr Cairo' (Jon Vangelis) and 'I am Australian' (Seekers). Now I seek another profession because the audience hates me ..
