Next week, September 26th will mark the 4thanniversary of the Burmese military regime’s violent crackdown on the tens of thousands of Buddhist monks who participated in the Saffron Revolution. Four years later, 222 monks still remain in prison and not one perpetrator has been held accountable for the violent attacks.
President Obama has said he supports establishing an UN Commission of Inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma but has done little to make this a reality.
Please join us in signing our petition to President Obama demanding he turn his words into action and provide U.S. leadership to secure an UN Commission of Inquiry on Burma.
Earlier this year 84,000 civilians living in Karen State, Burma sent a similar petition to world leaders. But the world has done little more than offer up words not action. We need to keep the pressure on.
With your participation we can send a clear message to President Obama: the people of Burma urgently need a Commission of Inquiry to crimes against humanity in Burma. The more signatures we have, the stronger our message will be.
DEADLINE: We are looking to deliver the petition signatures on Monday, September 26th before President Obama goes to New York for the opening of the UN General Assembly. Don’t let such an opportunity pass us by!

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 ..
