              City of Palo Alto Passes Selective Purchasing Law

                    Released by ISBDA, October 20, 1997.

      After detailed testimonies by activists about human right abuses 
and narcotic conspiracy of the Government of Myanmar, the city council of 
Palo Alto, California, has passed tonight a resolution that bans the city 
doing business with the companies directly or indirectly doing business 
with the military government of Burma. This is the fifth city in the 
Silicon Valley area that enforces selective purchasing law against 
companies doing business with the brutal military rulers of Burma.
