Burma's generals have brought their brutal iron hand down on peaceful 
and protesters -- but in response, a massive global outcry is

The Burmese people are showing incredible courage in the face of 
We're broadcasting updates on our effort over the radio into Burma 
itself -
telling the people that growing numbers of us stand with them.   
Let's do
everything we can to help them.

With hope and determination,
