Title: Raise Your Voice for Burma’s Ethnic People!
Description/subject: "A US based not for profit Art and Activism Project, Roots To Resistance, has created a global art campaign to raise voices for the ethnic people of Burma. Denise Beaudet, the local artist behind Roots To Resistance and the Burma Project, has created artistic postcards that raise the voice for Burma’s ethnic nationalities and are pre-addressed to ASEAN in order to bring international attention to Burma’s ethnic issues. The Burma Postcards, available in English and Burmese, raise important historical and current issues faced by Burma’s ethnic nationalities, such as displacement, non-inclusion, war, poverty, violence as well as stolen lands and resources. Burma Link interviewed Denise Beaudet about the campaign."
