The recent crisis in Burma has shown that huge masses of people can be reached through the networks of blogs. Many bloggers dedicated to bringing the truth out have been doing so. They have been the voice of Burma, where it is hard for western news-outlets to report. One of these is Ko Htike (who I recently added to the links), who lives in London, but was able to obtain a lot of underground pictures and other media.

It looks like the blogs are organising. On the 4th of October, calls on all bloggers and website owners “to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“”. Please check out their website now and be a part of this!

“If you have no website or blog we need you even more: Please help us to spread the word while commenting on other blogs with our message/link, posting on forums, guestbooks and message boards, tell your neighbours, friends or kids and first of all: Sign our list of participants! Furthermore you can visit our Wiki for more information and organisation.

Spread the word

Please help to spread the word about the Free Burma! action.
Comment on blogs to promote our campaign, write website owners and forum admins to inform them, post on forums and guestbooks, tell your whole neighborhood about us. Digg, Technorati, Facebook, Stumble.”
