“Panties for Peace” Campaign

You ladies out there who are reading this particular blog posting. If you had any compassion for the recent oppression by the military Junta in Burma (also known as Myanmar) on the monks or its citizens, you can play a part in protesting against such harsh treatment by the military Junta.

Activists based in Chiang Mai of Thailand has started a Panties for Peace Campaign where ladies will send their panties (whether worn or clean or those got holes in it) to Burma embassies throughout the whole world.

Liz Hilton, a supporter of the Lanna Action for Burma and a member of the Empower Foundation said this: “The people of Burma are doing what they can inside [the country]. We should do whatever we can outside. Most of us are not politicians, we are not powerful people. But women do have the power of their panties—let’s use that.”

You must be wondering of all things, why a lady's panties. Am I being sexist here? Well, according to a supertitious belief, the Junta members or military regime will lose power the moment they come into contact with those ladies panties.

Todate - Burmese embassies in UK, Thailand, Australia and Switzerland have received the panties. I wonder how are those embassy staff are reacting to it.

If you wanted to support this campaign, please browse for the embassy's address nearest to your place of stay. Ain't women fighting for women's power, now is the time to show your power.
