Bloggers Playing Role In Burma Protests As Government Steps Up Violence

Protests in Burma are becoming violent as the repressive military government is attacking and arresting Buddhist monks and others protesting for greater political freedoms.

Here is a link to a blog called Burma Digest that has details about and pictures of the protests.

Here is a link to ko htike’s prosaic collection. This blog from Burma also has pitctures of the protests.  

Here is a link to a BBC article detailing the part bloggers are playing in getting this story to the world from Burma. International  journalists are not allowed in Burma.  The BBC has a number of articles discussing events in Burma. 

These monks in Burma are freedom fighters and they merit our international support.
