Los Angeles, CA (April 7, 2009) – On Tuesday, April 21, thousands of
students and community members will come together to make history at
the 3rd Annual Mighty Mic Human Rights Awareness Concert at UCLA,
Benefit for Burma. This student-run non-profit concert attracts about
2,000 attendees annually and is fast becoming a beloved UCLA
tradition. Last year, Mighty Mic raised over $20,000 for the refugees
of the genocide in Darfur. This year, Mighty Mic will highlight the
struggle for human rights in Burma, a country that has been under the
rule of an all-oppressive military junta for 43 years, making it the
4th least free country in the world. Learn more about the human rights
violations, including the abuse of ethnic minorities, mass rape of
women, forced labor, mandatory relocations, and child soldiers.
Benefit For Burma 2009's multi-media showcase will feature an eclectic
mix of artists from many genres such as rock, indie, and hip-hop, as
well as relevant educational content in the form of speakers and
videos which will entertain, inform, and inspire attendees.
