Public Service Announcements for Burma
Tuesday, May 27, 2008

I was recently asked to participate in a Worldwide Campaign, Burma it Can't Wait. Thirty spots featuring various artists, celebrities and topics are being presented as a month of raising international awareness on Burma. If you are unaware of the egregious human and civil right abuses taking place in Burma, please educate yourselves and help increase public awareness about Burma. Many of you are aware of the cyclone which hit Burma recently, but if you are unaware of the political turmoil which embroils this country, please take a moment to learn about the reasons for this campaign, BURMA IT CAN'T WAIT.

The spot I participated in was directed by Timothy Linh Bui (Three Seasons, Green Dragon) and produced by United Front's Michael Abbott. I was proud to be a part of it and hope it will galvanize your interest and care on the matter.

Below is a message from the producer.

New from United Front...
I would like to invite you to watch our latest PSA for Burma starring Michelle Krusiec (Day 25) and directed by hyper-talented Timothy Linh Bui.

This particular PSA was shot prior to the recent cyclone and it addresses the inhumane issues that have plagued the people of Burma for years... in this case Water Torture.
Burmese soldiers practice a kidnapping, called "The Midnight Knock", where they cart away Human Rights Activists in the middle of the night from their homes and torture them... one technique used is water torture. At first, the water feels like nothing, but after a few minutes it feels like BOMBS exploding inside your skull.
This campaign has already created awareness and united front is very proud to be a part of it.

Please also see our other Burma PSA's including the Kardashian's, Jason Biggs and Steven Seagal.

Kim Kardashian & her sisters (Day 24)
Jason Biggs and Jenny Malone (Day 3)
Steven Seagal (Day 19)


Thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Burma.
Thanks for your support and big thanks to the cast and crews for each of these PSA's!

Of all the spots that I've seen, this is by far the most gripping and compelling... and must I add with no words spoken at all!

My heart goes out to the Burma victims that have had to face the dictatorship of Than Shwe.
