Better late than never

Just realised that I should have posted this yesterday.


Free Burma!

There are international demonstrations planned tomorrow.

See here. And here.

NB: The day of action has been organised spontaneously around the world, with coordination through facebook.

This is what this medium's for, folks.

Thanks for helping! FREE Burma!!!

Bush slammed the UN and the rulers of Myanmar in his UN speech last week. The only country that has any influence over Myanmar is China, and they can't and won't push too hard. There is too much Oil & Gas there that they need.

The UN must do something, but they never use military force to fight.
That is a huge problem.

Illegal drug and ruby fortunes are a BIG part of this too.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
complete narco states

criminals in power
loving the corrupt drug war


absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
shoot peaceful protesters

calling for democracy
which you must never allow


absurd thought -
God of the Universe thinks
keep trying communism

you can never KILL too much
pursuing Utopia...

I didn't make it to the protest because I didn't check your post until today, but we have been talking about it in class. If you want to help your kids understand what is going on there are some simple articles on the http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/newsid_7010000/newsid_7012600/7012606.stmCBBC website and one little boy has written an article about the protests that he has been participating in in London and his feelings.

Oh, one of these days I'll learn how to put links in, it's the CBBC website.
