Free Burma

Free Burma!

Thursday 4 October was proclaimed International Bloggers' Day for Burma. As the Free Burma website explains, the organisers of this campaign 'want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons.'

Personally, as a Buddhist and a person who's strongly against violence, Buddhist monks shouldn't be protesting on the street. However, it is even worse for the ruthless junta to act violently against the monks.

A friend of mine been to Myanmar few months back and show me some photos. I was completely shocked and disbelief upon seeing the condition of the country.

And recently an ex colleague told me she has changed job and now with the International Organization for Migration. And she told me there are a lot of Myanmar refugees trying to escape the poverty and militant rules by seeking refuge in Thailand.

What I can do now is pray and hope that one day Myanmar will see democracy ruling in their country.
