Hundreds of people have been attending rallies across Australia over the past few days in support of protesters in Burma, and more events are planned. In Melbourne there was a candlelight vigil on Thursday evening (http://www.theage.com.au/news/national/this-is-a-time-for-action/2007/09/27/1190486480142.html) and yesterday, Friday, a rally at the Town Hall followed by a march to the State Library. Speakers from the Burmese community have included a former political prisoner and an exiled National League for Democracy MP, as well as a Buddhist monk leading prayers.
