Act Out

I never thought I’d feature Will Ferrell video clips (now that just sounds snobbish) but his recent work for the US Campaign for Burma, a U.S.-based group that works to empower grassroots activists in bringing an end to the military dictatorship in Burma, deserves attention. Sure, I do really like his line about being alone in your room in Toledo and not knowing what you can do to help, but it’s the cause to get one million people to work toward international intervention that really appeals. Say what you will about celebrity endorsements, but this at least invites a different audience to be exposed to news about Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and hear about the National League for Democracy for the first time.
