Free Burma

Free Burma!

Monks join armed resistance

Many monks who escaped arrest in the Burmese junta’s brutal crackdown on mass demonstrations in Rangoon and Mandalay are returning to their home villages in ethnic areas and joining armed resistance groups.

A Shan monk who escaped across the mountainous border into northern Thailand told a Thai television reporter he intended leaving the monastic order and enlisting in the Shan State Army-South, which is fighting the Burmese army in eastern Burma.


I have seen how the Burmese army guns down peaceful monks," said the Mon refugee."We have to hit back."

The UN's attempt to resolve the political crisis in Burma and end the brutal treatment of protesters has not succeeded, the secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, admitted last night.

FREE Burma!!!

Bush slammed the UN and the rulers of Myanmar in his UN speech last week.

The UN must do something, but they never use military force to fight.
That is a huge problem.

Illegal drug fortunes are a BIG part of this.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
complete narco states

criminals in power
loving the corrupt drug war

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
shoot peaceful protesters

calling for democracy
which you must never allow
