30 artists for Burma

This is pretty cool. Apparently thirty artists have signed a letter which has condemned the violence in the Burma/Myanmar region and supports the release of the National League for Democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.

Among those who have signed the letter: novelists Michael Ondaatje – The English Patient, Maxine Hong Kingston – The Woman Warrior, Amitav Ghosh – The Glass Palace, Le Ly Hayslip – When Heaven and Earth Changed Places,  as well as poet Bamaw Nyo New.
