An Open Letter To Burma

"As citizens of the world, as artists valuing free expression, as people of Asian heritage, we write in support of the courageous Buddhist monks and nuns, and other people from all religions and walks of life in Burma, as they continue to seek peaceful change and national reconciliation...We demand an immediate end to the violence against protesters and a release of all political prisoners."

- From an open letter to Burma signed by, among others, Maxine Hong Kingston, Michael Ondaatje, Amitav Ghosh and Le Ly Hayslip.
