Burma protests

Some horrible news keep coming from Burma, after the military regime reacted violently to the protesters in the country. According to one of them, thousands of monks and protesters have been tortured and killed before being dumped in the jungle. Still no confirmations and we don’t know if the story apparently told by a senior intelligence officer is true or just exaggerated rumours. But it’s very certain that the conditions keep getting worse and worse in Burma and if something very effective does not come from the international community very soon, I fear that not only the monks’ but also Aung San Suu Kyi‘s life is under a serious risk too.

Time to support the Burmese uprising for democracy and time to show our solidarity: Not in a spritual manner but physically. Otherwise, this will be “yet another massacre” on dirty records of the Myanmar fascist regime and another black page in the history of Burma after August 1988 incidents.

A SENIOR Burmese intelligence official claims thousands of protesters are dead and the bodies of hundreds of executed monks have been dumped in the jungle.
After defecting from the military junta and fleeing to the Thai border, Hla Win told a reporter from London’s Daily Mail: “Many more people have been killed in recent days than you’ve heard about. The bodies can be counted in several thousand.”
With protests quashed and many monasteries empty, fears are growing for those who have disappeared into Burma’s grim jails.
Mr Win said he fled when he was ordered to help massacre holy men.
Mr Win, 42, a former chief of military intelligence in Rangoon’s northern region, said: “I decided to desert when I was ordered to raid two monasteries and force several hundred monks on to trucks.
“They were to be killed and their bodies dumped deep inside the jungle. I refused to participate in this,” he said.
