It's Begun

The police in Burma have made their first move on the peaceful protesters using tear gas and firing live bullets over the heads of protesters. Over one hundred people have been arrested and many have been beaten and seriously injured by the police. It's hard to get much news because the government keeps a tight grip on censorship.

We are so lucky to have our basic freedoms. And yet, as our governments impose on the freedoms of other countries we stand by idly or simply in ignorance. We should learn something from the Burmese monks, who knowingly risk their lives for the sake of their people and even ask the public not join the protest so that they are not hurt.

Spread the word about this travesty in the making to all the people you know.
