Burmese Activists Call for Week-Long Protest Vigil


Pro-democracy activists in Burma have called on religious organizations in the country to join in a week-long protest prayer vigil for peace and freedom for political prisoners.

The 88 Generation Student's Group issued their call through a letter Friday, asking religious leaders to hold prayers for peace beginning Sunday and running through November 4th.

The group - named for pro-democracy protests organized in 1988 - recently completed a petition campaign in which it collected more than 500,000 signatures calling for the release of Burma's political prisoners.

The campaign was seen as a rare show of protest in Burma. Five of the group's members had been detained a few days before the campaign began.

The petition demands the release of all political prisoners, including pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, and urges the military government to hold talks with opposition and ethnic minority leaders
