Monks March


As the Burmese monks continue to defy the junta warnings, all freedom-loving, peaceful people should stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Burmese people against their tyrannical and brutal military regime.  The human rights violations there have been overlooked for too long.

The government has already threatened the peaceful protesters, it has imposed curfews and it’s been alleged that it is making sneaky efforts to sabotage the marches by getting its military personnel to pose as monks and join the protests in a bid to cause disruption.  Source

It all kind of brings to mind the brutal Tiananmen Square event.  The Burmese miltary has a bloody history of using violent force against any protest to their rule, however peaceful that protest may be, which makes me full of admiration and respect for the brave monks and nuns and all their civilian supporters who are now peacefully but adamantly challenging their leaders.

Sign here to add your support.  The petition will be handed over to Security Council members at the UN climate summit which began in New York this week.

  1. Done, Earthpal.
    The world has an infamous history of being late in all important issues. It was late with Hitler’s Germany and it has also been late with Burma, or Myanmar as you like.

    But Myanmar shows to us that it is “the people” who must have the last word in aspects that underline their right to democracy, armies will never do the job.

    What is really a shame is that the Burmese army, which is understood to be formed by persons from “the people” behave as they do against their co-nationals.

    Which reminds me of Portugal’s return to Democracy with soldiers walking the streets with roses in the barrels of their guns.

    The Portuguese taught the world an exemplary lesson.

    Power to the Burmese people. Kick out the robber leaders who grow fat on so many people’s misery and despair. This must stop.

  3. I think I made a mistake in my comment. Wasn’t carnations the Portuguese guns exhibited?

  4. Hi Jose. Lovely history lesson there about the Portugese return to democracy. Carnation or rose – still a flower. And much more powerful than the gun.
    Thanks for signing.
