Take Action Now! (Update)

And it gets worse by the day…
Junta’s crackdown in Burma intensifies
Internet access ‘cut off’ in attempt to silence Burma

So basically the monks have dissapeared and nobody really seems to know what happened to them… Maybe we should stop threatening them with sanctions (the junta has lived with sanctions for decades anyway) and start threatening them with something more serious. These sanctions will hurt the people more than it will hurt the government.

Original post
Words, words, words, words… Maybe for the first time in a very long time, we have a good reason to intervene and step in. Why are we only sending ONE guy there to ‘monitor’? Isn’t what we’ve seen and heard in the media enough? It’s unacceptable to stand by and let soldiers kill monks… Peaceful monks and also civilians. The UN has to act before it’s too late. NOW.

If you haven’t, please sign the petition. It takes one minute, so don’t postpone it, do it NOW.

And then have a look here.

10,000 protesters face down Myanmar forces in Yangon (Forbes)

They’re murdering people! Wake up!

    I assume that Amnesty has an international site!

  3. The UN should intervene.

    It’s weird that the world’s just watching this all happen, when we can go into Afghanistan with no evidence, and Iraq with a very poor basis of evidence.
