Attended the Nonprofit Commons and there was a T-Shirt giver and I got my virtual T-Shirt. There’s also a vigil being held today organized by the Peacemaker Institute on Commonwealth Island. Here’s the information on the notecard:
Please join us in solidarity for the monks in Burma who are beng killed and imprisoned…a meditation/vigil will be held throughout the day on Friday the 28th on Commonwealth island:
They are arresting and imprisoning monks- so far over 700 have been arrested.
They have raided dozens of monasteries
While the regime is stating only 9 have been killed the number is far closer to 200
They have snipers on tops of buildings to pick of the leaders
They are trying to suppress the violence.
We MUST protest!
