Support Democracy: Donate Your Panties

I don't really understand the logic behind this movement, but I'm certainly not opposed to freedom loving ladies freeing themselves from the shackles of their panties and donating them to a good cause...that said I don't think our main focus of democratic promotion in Burma should be on breaking the taboo Burmese citizens have towards their panties...

Snip-bits from the link:
A campaign is underway to chastise Burma's military regime, not through dialogue or sanctions, but by flooding the country's foreign embassies with women's underwear, an activist said...

"The Burma military regime is not only brutal but very superstitious. They believe that contact with a woman's panties or sarong can rob them of their power," the Lanna Action for Burma group said on its website.

An activist in the Party Power campaign (clearly one of the aforementioned freedom-loving females), had this to say about the purposes of their efforts:

"We are sending [the generals] panties as a symbol of putting their power down"
