Ok, this is not RDF-related unless someone has the vocabulary to say it - but 
if while in Bejing you meet any minor government functionary or high-level 
professional, could you please just ask them if there is anything they know 
that can be done to stop the ongoing ethnic cleansing in Burma?   I know its 
not in the news but take a quick look at where this village used to be.  It 
is still going on now as of Mar 4 08.  China is in fact blocking any action 
on Burma but its better to phrase things like asking for help.

End of digression.  Email me if you want further info.

Thanks
