Who Is the Dictator of Burma?
Today is day #20 of our 30-day video campaign for Burma.
Today's piece, starring Ellen Page, exposes to the general public -- for the first time -- who is the military dictator in Burma. For far too long, Than Shwe has terrorized the people of Burma with his brutal rule and countless crimes against humanity.
While much of the world knows about the crimes of dictators Slobodan Milosevic in former Yugoslavia, Pol Pot in Cambodia, Omar Al-Bashir in Sudan, and Adolf Hitler in Germany, practically no one knows about Than Shwe.
No two dictators are exactly alike, and Than Shwe is his own kind of monster.
We want the world to know who he is -- so that he can no longer terrorize the people of Burma behind closed doors (his most recent crime -- denying aid to desperate victims of the Burma cyclone).
