Tomorrow is the dreaded day
Tomorrow is our 10K run in Regent's Park!
When we all agreed to do the run, it seemed so far away, with so much time to prepare for it - now it's tomorrow. I haven't done half the training I planned, but there's no escape now. And of course, the funds we are raising all go to help our campaign for human rights in Burma.
I started working on human rights in Burma in 2010 and regularly travelled to the Thai-Burma border to meet with groups involved in the struggle for a free Burma. At that time there were over 140,000 refugees in Thailand who had fled attacks by the Burmese Army.
Today, there are still attacks on civilians by the Burmese Army, families are still forced to flee and the Burmese army is blocking the reform needed to allow them to return home.

We need your help to raise awareness to ensure their plight is not forgotten, to campaign to end the attacks and to work with grassroots activists in Burma to help them campaign for peace and human rights.
