Today I got to face many forms of injustice from morning until night. In the morning, I went to Causecast to help film an interview with Aaron Cohen. He's an amazing guy with a lot of history and a lot of heart for saving the innocent children. He's a Causecast leader who support Abolish Slavery.

In the afternoon, I helped film a protest to free Aung San Suu Kyi held in front of the Kodak Theater.

The protest was organized by LA Organizers for Burma along with the LA Burmese community. Aung San Suu Kyi is currently being detained in Rangoon while facing trial on charges for violating the terms of her house arrest. The international community has widely condemned the trial as an attempt by Burma's ruling military junta to keep Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her party, the National League for Democracy, out of upcoming elections.

Later tonight, I read some bad news of detained journalists I've been following. 2 American journalists have been sentenced to 12 years in labor camp in N. Korea. These reporters worked for current tv. Their names are Laura Ling and Euna Lee. According to this article: Gore had no comment. According to CNN's article, Gore is slated to go and try to free them after the trial ends:

This must be really hard on their friends and family as well as current tv but I would have liked to see them address the issue even if it's an acknowledgement on their website.
