Free Your Naughty Bits, Free Burma


If you felt powerless to help Burma in its struggle for democracy during the country’s recent, but so far resultless, protests, well, your panties may help. The Lanna Action for Burma Committee is asking women of all nations to contribute their undergarments to its Panty Power Campaign, which aims to let the generals of the ruling junta know that people around the world don’t approve of its rampant human rights abuses. In addition, said generals are superstitious freaks who, according to LABC, believe that contact with ladies’ lingerie can render a man feeble.

So take off your panties and send them to the embassy near you; it’s easier, more fun, and more direct than writing a letter to the U.N. Try to veto this, China!

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
