Jim Carrey to the United Nations: Balm Burma!
Jim Carrey advised the United Nations Security Council on Friday to ban all international arms shipments to Burma (officially known as the Union of Myanmar). The comedian-turned-activist urged China, Russia and India to back the ban at a press conference held at the UN Plaza in NYC.
Carrey, 45, wants to help win freedom for Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
“This is a government that uses its weapons not in self defense, but against its own citizens,” Carrey said. “The time has come for the United Nations Security Council to start acting less like a group of corporations and more like united nations.”
