Anna Chan:
Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone calls for democracy in Burma.
His latest "Rambo" film is set in Burma and deals with human rights violations. Here's more on the story.

Rags-to-riches boxer and tough-as-nails Vietnam veteran, thats Rambo.
Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars as Rambo in this new movie.

[Sylvester Stallone, Rambo Actor]:
"I wanted to do something realistic, something responsible and something political and not many people in the world know about Burma even though it's the longest reigning civil war, 60 years, on the planet."

Yesterday Stallone was in Tokyo talking up his movie, as well as doing his bit to help the Burmese people.

[Sylvester Stallone, Rambo Actor]:
"Just recently with this horrible cyclone, we see how these people were unprepared and are being treated terribly, suffering because of the indifference of the government... I think what's gonna come out of this devastating cyclone and the fact that our film has made it much more apparent of the violence that these people live under, I think there's going to be great social change in that country because they can't hide anymore. So we're very happy and proud to be involved with doing our little effort and bring Burma into an area of democracy."

Stallone appeared in great shape after a grueling three months in the Thai and Burmese jungle making the film.
Stallone's movie specifically focuses on the Karen tribe of eastern Myanmar.
UK-based Christian Aid says the Karen and other groups have suffered half a million cases of forced relocation and thousands more have been imprisoned, tortured or killed.
Several former Burmase freedom fighters acted in the movie despite government threats.
