Monday, 01 October 07, lunchtime, 12:30-1pm, 10 East 77th Street, New York City
Prob ’bout 300-400 people sat down outside the Burmese embassy in Manhattan, for a half-hour meditation and some slogan chanting organized by Amnesty International. Probably a few hundred more were at the UN at 1pm.
Thousands more had been outside in the streets in Rangoon in the last 24 hours, being shot, murdered, and terrorized by Burmese soldiers.
Just for wanting to do what we can do at lunch, anytime we want.
“Yo, Burma, eat this!” was unfortunately NOT one of the lunchtime chants.
