Panties And Hankies At News Conference

[Calgary Herald] It was set up as a formal news conference, with a backdrop of panties. Feminist and human rights groups launched the Panties for Peace protest movement Tuesday, highlighting human rights abuses in Myanmar, formerly Burma – particularly those against women. The event appeared to have a lighter side until Thet Thet Tun, a Concordia University student who left Myanmar 20 years ago, wept as she began to describe the oppression people face under the country’s military junta.

The rest.
