Secondly some info about the campaign...
On Sunday 7 November 2010, Burma will have its first election in 20 years.
Over the past months, the 'Burma sub-group' of the Crisis Response Team has been working with the International Secretariat, other sections and structures - especially in the Asia Pacific region, and other organisations to develop a campaign focused on Defending the three freedoms - expression, assembly and association - in Burma.
The campaign is calling on ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) and its members to publicly support the three freedoms.
In practice, this means that between now and November we will be rolling out an integrated campaign which will engage our supporters and the community in our campaign.
This will involve use of the petition by face to face fundraisers, development of an interactive global online action site, flyers and a campaign digest for use in street campaigning, reactive and proactive media, an iPhone app, countless events in the regions to stalls to singing flash mobs to bowling, a pre-planned email communication strategy which includes 'stepping up' our supporters to different levels of engagement, possible regional action at the Asia Pacific Directors meeting in Hong Kong,
