This came in a day late… but for today, the post will be for Burma. Let’s spread the word.
An Invite: Bloggers for Burma to Stage International Online Protest
The junta in Burma (aka Myanmar) may have blacked out public internet access
in the country in an attempt to prevent information about the military’s
violent crackdown on protesting monks from getting out, but the move is
proving to be too little too late. Now http://www.free-burma.org has
announced an International Bloggers’ Day for Burma on October 4th.
Bloggers who wish to show their solidarity with the peaceful protest are
being asked to refrain from posting that day and instead display one of the
Free Burma banners or images that have been created for the online protest.
