Update: Streets of Burma
- Download "The Streets of Burma"
In September 2007, thousands of monks and nuns in Burma took to the streets in the famous "Saffron Revolution" that inspired me to write my song "The Streets of Burma." Since that time, hundreds of people sent Amnesty International postcards to the Myanmar Embassy in Ottawa asking for the release of U Gambira, one of the leaders of the demonstrations that took place in September of 2007.
In January of 2012, U Gambira was released from prison, along with a number of other political prisoners. There is no doubt in my mind that our actions helped free U Gambira, and helped bring about change in Burma. I want to thank all of you who spoke up for U Gambira and for democracy in Burma. And I want to thank Amnesty International Canada for the opportunity to work with them.
U Gambira's release is one of many hopeful signs in Burma/Myanmar. In recent elections Aung San Suu Kyi and many members of her opposition NLD party won seats in parliament. There are signs that the dictatorship is beginning to open up to reforms, and many countries-- including Canada-- who have had ongoing sanctions against Myanmar/Burma are now lifting or reducing them.
And yet, there is still so much that is not right in Burma. Violence against ethnic minorities, including the Kachin people in Northern Burma, has actually increased recently and there are thousands of displaced people amassing along the border with China.
Now, more than ever, we need to keep our eyes on situation there and keep the pressure on the government of Myanmar to move towards real democracy and civil rights.

With our help, the people of Burma can someday live in peace and security.
