Candlelight Vigil and Concert for Burma, Tuesday November 13, 2007

Tonight, 6:00pm at Hillel, the UConn chapter of Amnesty International will be hosting a candlelit vigil for the victims of Burma. All are encouraged to come show support and learn more about the issue. There will be a donation bin for “Dolls for Refugee Children” in Burma.

Following the vigil, Insense will be putting on a concert (7:00pm at Hillel) in an effort to “wage musical war against the military junta that continues to oppress new pro-democracy protest in Myanmar (formerly Burma)”. The bands include:

-My Heart to Joy
-The Gracies
-The Purse Snatchers
-Joseph Stalin and the Island Dreamers

Between sets, activists will be sharing poetry and facts to raise awareness on the atrocities occurring in Burma and what you can do to help. The COST for the concert is $5.00 or a non-perishable food item. All proceeds from the concert go to the Covenent Soup Kitchen in Willimantic.
