      GLOBAL JUSTICE CENTRE, NEW YORK

      &

      RITINJALI, NEW DELHI



      RAISE AWARENESS



      for bringing



      GLOBAL JUSTICE FOR BURMA



      Global Justice Centre, New York in partnership with Ritinjali, New Delhi
      is organizing an awareness generation event on 8th August, 2008 from
      6:30 p.m. till 9:00 p.m. at Gulmohar Hall, India Habitat Centre, New
      Delhi. The purpose of this event is to bring together members of the
      Burmese, global human rights, activist and creative communities, along
      with others to call for justice in Burma.



      The event seeks to use the Olympics (8th August being the first day of
      the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the twentieth anniversary of the 8-8-88
      protests and massacres by military leaders in Burma) to unite the global
      community that has mobilized around the issue of Burma over the past
      year to provide a clear message and call to action for ending military
      rule in Burma.



      Ongoing impunity for General Than Shwe emboldens his criminal actions.
      This year's suppression of the September Monks protests by the military
      and their subsequent denial of aid to humanitarian victims unveiled the
      true nature of this brutal regime to the rest of the world.



      Global Justice Centre and Ritinjali believe that it is our
      responsibility, as part of the global community, to initiate discussion
      and raise awareness about the situation in Burma- especially in the wake
      of Cyclone Nargis as well as the crackdown on the monks protests in
      September 2007- to build political will to bring the leaders in Burma to
      justice.
