Burmese opposition leader says world must act

John King, San Francisco Chronicle

A leading opponent of Burma's military regime spoke at a Marin County college graduation on Saturday and called on the world's largest nations to help victims of Cyclone Nargis - whether the current regime approves or not.

"The international community must act immediately and effectively to save millions of lives," said Sein Win, prime minister of the National Coalition Government Union of Burma, a self-proclaimed government-in-exile that opposes the military, which has controlled Burma since 1962.

Win spoke in San Rafael at the undergraduate commencement of Dominican University of California, a private institution that invited him to accept an honorary doctorate degree on behalf of Aung San Suu Kyi.
