Ryuhei Kawada, a member of the Japan’s House of Councilors (upper house), has released a video message on YouTube calling for people to join him in supporting freedom for Burma.

A Japanese video was also released:

In the video message, Mr. Kawada points out that Burma’s regime spends more than half of the state budget for its military, and that only a fraction of the state budget is spent on health.  Himself an HIV patient who became infected through tainted blood products, Kawada is shocked about the closure of Maggin monastery:  “These patients depended on the monastery because the military regime gave them no help.  I find it appalling that the regime would deprive these people of the monastery’s support and make them suffer more.”
