International Bloggers Day for a Free Burma : 4th Oct'07...

This post is in support of humanity and human spirit. This post is in support of my fellow men from Burma. Burma, one small but beautiful country that has tolerated enough so far. How can one forget the imprisoned heroes like Aung San Suu Kyi, who in 1991 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her peaceful and non-violent struggle under a military dictatorship. But it seems, that the world seems to have forgotten about this nation when today it is tormented by a flood of reports of alleged brutal killings, disappearances and arrests.
The global bloggers community has joined arms with the monks and the people of Burma who risk their lives everyday for freedom and democracy.
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!".

Show your sympathy for the Free Burma! action and sign our list of participants, whether or not you're a blogger, website owner or someone who wants to point the way to democracy and freedom in Burma!

You can do that here. Please sign up as each entry makes a difference.

Also, note that it remains extremely difficult for anyone to confirm details about who has been arrested, where they are held, why and under what circumstances. This uncertainty is partly as a consequence of restrictions on Internet and phone use. You can read more details on the struggle with some thought provoking writeups by fellow Desicritic'ians: Madhu Chandra, The Buddha Smiled and writer Jawahara Saidullah.

Keep reading and remain connected.
