Perth Public meeting Sat Aug 11: Hope for a free #Burma w @SenatorLudlam just back from Myanmar

Public meeting this Saturday: Hope for a free Burma

WA Senator Scott Ludlam – recently returned from Burma – will speak in Perth on Burma’s current situation, future prospects for democracy, and the role Australians can play.

Saturday August 11, 4pm – 6pm

The Lesser Hall, The Australian Asian Association

275 Stirling Street Perth

Senator Ludlam travelled to Burma in July to learn more about the changes in the country since the by-election that saw pro-democracy candidates including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi win 43 of 45 seats contested.

But with the parliament still dominated by the military junta and many political prisoners still behind bars, sanctions are being lifted and a tide of investment unleashed. What does this mean for the people? How can we support democracy in Burma? And what can we do here in Perth?
