Your Call 102207 An Update on Burma

A month after the uprising in Burma, what's the status on the global call for democracy? On the next Your Call, we'll have a discussion about Burma, one month after the military violently suppressed protests, leaving many people dead and more than 3,000 detained. Human rights activists are calling on Chinese, Indian, and other companies doing business in Burma to condemn the government’s abuses. Meanwhile, Burma is fading from the front pages. How will that affect the struggle for democracy? It's Your Call, with me Rose Aguilar and you.
