Sep 28, 2007 Governing by force is no way to govern

Sadly, the Burmese government is intensifying its violence against peaceful protestors. Burmese soldiers have already killed at least nine people during its demonstration crackdown. 

Meanwhile, the Internet has been a powerful tool for the demonstrators and their supporters (and the Burmese government responded by cutting off cellphone service and some or all Internet connections). Here is a blog of a Kho Htike, who is a Burmese man in Europe who posts news on the events in Burma, and photos that apparently can get the senders in very dangerous hot water with the Burmese government for sending them.
