The Highlander Research and Education Center joins people around the world in support of the Burmese people and their courageous struggle for freedom and democracy.

The military regime of Burma (which calls the country Myanmar) has been in power for the last 15 years and has met the nonviolent “Saffron Revolution” of Buddhist monks and ordinary citizens with brutal killings, beatings, rapes, slave labor, and burning of villages, and is escalating their viscious attacks.

International pressure is critical, and a day of action to Free Burma is taking place around the world on Saturday, October 6th. For information about an action close to you in the U.S., see the map at:

With the media crackdown by the military regime, documentation of human rights abuses is critical. To donate for needed equipment, visit Stone Circles at and click on the “Donate Now” button.
