No to Burma chairmanship of ASEAN
The Free Burma Coalition-Philippines (FBC) is organizing a demonstration on Monday, 10 am, at the Don Chino Roces Bridge (formerly Mendiola) in Manila to protest the visit of Burmese Prime Minister Soe Win.

Prime Minister Soe Win, who will be arriving in Manila tomorrow night, will meet with President Arroyo on Monday as part of his official round of visits to ASEAN countries after he assumed office as Prime Minister in October 2004. He will be accompanied by Minister of Foreign Affairs Nyan Win and other officials in meeting with President Arroyo.

The FBC Philippines will be calling for the Philippines to upset Burma's scheduled chairmanship of ASEAN next year.
