Dear Friends,
There is a lot brewing in the Brackett household this weekend. We are preparing for our appeal mailing on Wednesday, a Trustee meeting on Saturday, and, of course, another trip coming up in January.

There is also a lot brewing on the Thai-Burmese border. The "Irrawaddy" reports on diminishing support of NGOs helping the refugees, and Thailand's enthusiasm to repatriate them soon. While "Human Rights Watch" documents abuses committed against the refugees by Thailand.

Finally a note about the continuing suffering of the Rohingyas by "Muslim Matters", and a picture from the Internet showing why some of the refugees wish to return.

Check on any of the links to read the articles. Any of you who might not be on our mailing list and who might like to receive our new brochure, please send in your post address.

Best Wishes,
