Chin National Day 2009 - Pictures And Links

So it took practically a month, but here are some pictures from Chin National Day 2009, along with a link to the website of the Chin People Of Indianapolis, which contains lots of other links to various information and resources concerning the Burmese refugees who are here in Indianapolis and the people of Chin State generally. Though not top five, one of the better non-fiction books I read last year was called The Iron Road: A Stand For Truth And Democracy In Burma, by James Mawdsley, an English fellow who did time - literally - in Burma for advocating freedom and attempting to petition the "government," on behalf of the Burmese people, for a redress of grievances. Last but not least is a link to a documentary I just read about today at work, called Burma VJ, a Danish film which doesn't release theatrically until 2010 but is currently doing the festival circuit, both in the United States and abroad.
