First off im aware this might be completely off-topic. Although as far as im concerned, democracy is never off-topic.
I just wanted to raise awareness of the fight for democracy in Burma. Currently very little information reaches foreign media from Burma, since the military junta started its fight against the peaceful
protests and democracy movement. Its up to those of us with the option to voice ourself to react and not succumb to silence in the face of evil (even worse than the Drengin).
Currently in Burma citizens, Buddhist monks and even foreigners are being dragged out of their homes at night and taken to prison. Human rights are being violated as thousands are being imprisoned, where they are subjected to both physical and verbal torture. Propaganda against the protesters and foreign media is being shown in news in the country as the Junta tries to regain control over the country and repress the democratic movement. Its vital that we show the Burmese Junta that the world is watching.
You can currently sign a protest list at Avaaz.com
forwarded to the Chinese President Hu Jintao and the UN Security Council
to urge them to take action for a free Burma. Hundreds of thousands have already signed, support peace and democracy and sign as well.
