Activists send female underwear to Burmese embassies
Activists exasperated at the failure of diplomacy to apply pressure on Burma's military regime are resorting to a new means of protest against the regime's recent crackdown: sending female underwear to Burmese embassies.
Embassies in the UK, Thailand, Australia and Singapore have all been targeted by the "Panties for Peace" campaign, co-ordinated by an activist group based in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
So far, hundreds of pairs of pants have been posted, according to
another campaigner, Liz Hilton. "One group sent 140 pairs to the
Burmese embassy in Geneva," she said.
