This was passed along to me:

Hundreds of Buddhist monks are being arrested in government raids on monasteries in Myanmar (Burma) after leading large protests against the military regime. Help show support for these people by joining us in a vigil on Saturday 9/29 at 12 noon PDT on Odyssey.

Oh here's a second demo being planned in Burning Life:

From Saturday the 29th at 12.00 PM PDT until the end of the Burning Life Project October the 1th we will NON-STOP protest at at Burning Life Skylar (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Burning%20Life%20%28Skylar%29/149/199/24 .) Please feel free to join us at every hour of the day, take a Free Burma Tshirt and support the people of Burma.

Will the Burma protest hand out useful things like the addresses to write to (snail-mail) in Burma or their diplomatic addresses in the USA, addresses for our own Congress-critters, and suggested text of such a protest letter?
