On Saturday, October 6, 2007, Dwight, Maia and I joined the Atlanta Buddhist Peace Fellowship on a walk in support of the freedom protestors in Burma. We were in a group of over 50 people who walked from the Carter Presidential Library to the statue of Martin Luther King at the corner of Boulevard and Freedom Parkway.
It was a good experience and I got to speak to several people there, most notably Dorothy Shaw of the Oak Grove United Methodist Church in Decatur, which is sponsoring a family from Burma and Cheryl Tarr, the Georgia state coordinator of Peace Alliance, which is working globally to have each country install a state department of peace. Cheryl told us of some positive news sites she has found: Ode Magazine and Treehugger.
Apparently work is underway to do a protest next Saturday, October 13, possibly in front of the CNN Center.
