Talk with Tim Aye Hardy about Burma (Wednesday, June 8th at 6:30p)

Hi everyone,

Tim Aye Hardy

"I was one of the lucky few. Up to 6,000 innocent protesters were gunned down, and many more were imprisoned or mysteriously disappeared in the night. I lost many colleagues and close friends." - Tim Aye Hardy.

Recently, TIME magazine featured an article with headline, UN Envoy: Burma Not Addressing Abuse.  Not that this is news, as the abuses within Burma are long-standing and ongoing.  In April, the Obama administration finally complied with a portion of the Jade Act signed into law in 2008 and appointed a Special Envoy to Burma, Derek Mitchell.  As calls for a Commission of Inquiry continue, how much of a difference will this recent appointment (presuming he is confirmed by US Senate) make for Burma?

Our thanks goes out in advance to our dear friend, Tim Aye Hardy, from the Burma Global Action Network.  Some of you may recall Tim from when he was with us in person for an event last July.  He has graciously agreed to give us an update, walking us through the twists and turns of the current situation in Burma.

At our next meeting on Wednesday, June 8th at 6:30p, Tim, who lives in NYC, will join us via Skype.  This special meeting will be held in Lake Forest instead of our usual location.  Here is the address:
