Dear Mike,

We at USCB are ecstatic about the Oscars this year. Burma VJ has been nominated for best documentary film, and James Cameron, a longtime supporter of Burma's freedom struggle, is up for 3 academy awards for his acclaimed film Avatar.

This year, during your Oscar-watching get-together, turn this momentum around freedom and human rights in Burma into action. Ask your friends to sign a petition urging your member of Congress to co-sponsor House Resolution 898, which calls for the release of all political prisoners of conscience and an end to the systematic and widespread violations of human rights against the ethnic minorities inside Burma. Click here for more information.

Downright gripping and utterly inspiring, Burma VJ hails worldwide recognition for the selfless journalists who courted arrest, torture, and lengthy imprisonments in order to shine a spotlight on Burma's freedom struggle. If you have not had the chance to see Burma VJ, check out the trailer here.

We would also like to congratulate , who is a strong advocate for human rights in Burma, for his outstanding work and his Oscar nominations. Check out this video spot featuring James Cameron on the topic of Burma.

Films alone will not bring about political change in Burma. Your action can make a difference. Be the voice that contributes to the growing momentum around human rights and democracy in Burma. During the Oscars 2010, take a moment to circulate this petition to your member of Congress asking them to support House Resolution 898. When you are done, please mail the petition to Attention: Michael Haack, U.S. Campaign for Burma, 1444 N Street, NW, Suite A2, Washington, DC 20005.

Don't know who your member of Congress is? Find out here

Looking forward to the Oscars!
