On Oct 4 I will be participating in the International Bloggers “Free Burma” action-

International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words “Free Burma!”.

I challenge others to join this, or other actions such as the Avaaz Stand with Burma campaign. It might not seem like much, but I think every voice counts.

News coming out of Burma indicates the military junta has reacted violently to the uprising, with estimates of a few hundred to thousands killed and monastries desecrated. Background information about Burma and the story about the protest can be found in the New Statesman Burma Special.
