Here’s a great photo opt in Chiang Mai:   Sept 21th  & 23rd

“Good Morning Dear Library Members and Supporters!

The Best Friend Library in Chiang Mai next event – our large gathering/peaceful protest in Chiang Mai will take place on Tuesday 21 September. We will be meeting at Wat Suan Dok Temple at 9 a.m., then led by Burmese monks down Suthep Road and around the moat until we reach Thapae Gate. There we will have a rally with speeches and displays to call for Peace In Burma Now and to express our opposition to the 2010 elections. This event has the potential to be the largest and most visible event in Northern Thailand prior to the elections, so it is very important that as many monks and people as possible join with us. All Burma-related NGOs and organizations are strongly encouraged to join us! Please help to spread the information!

Finally, in recognition of the 3-year anniversary of the Saffron Revolution, we will be screening two documentaries on Thursday 23 September at Alliance Francaise at 138 Charoen Prathet Road in Chiang Mai. The first film will be "Inside Burma: Land of Fear" (56 minutes), which provides an introduction to the situation in Burma under the military regime, followed by "In The Middle of the Bridge: Burmese Monks in Foreign Lands" (60 minutes), which follows the story of several monks after they are forced to flee to other countries following their involvement in the Saffron Revolution. The first film has Thai subtitles. The films will be followed by a discussion with several Burmese monks.

I am going to try and be there and get photo to post.

Ciao
