“They knew that there is no point in asking the generals for freedom. They knew that they don’t have guns and can’t beat the army. All they wanted to do was show the world what their situation is and that they are prepared to die.”
These are brave words coming from a nation under oppression. A nation under great political distress, where the military regime is pulling out all stops to suppress a cry for freedom and democracy. Burma needs help, its common man needs help. And the help needs to be more than bureaucratic handshakes and discussion behind closed doors. Action needs to be taken by the international community to force the military regime(also referred to as junta) to step back, release all political prisoners and let people have a say in running of their country.
As a blogger, I do my bit by being a part of the One Post for Burma campaign.
Please visit www.free-burma.org by clicking on the link, or the image above and support the Burmese who are fighting for their freedom, without any guns, but with a lot of guts.
But when they hear that support for the demonstrations is dwindling and time passes by without help from anyone, they lose hope. They are getting disillusioned and eventually they’ll give up.
Please do not let these people lose hope. My request to the entire international community is to stand up, and act. Actions always speak louder than words.
But till we see any action, let us keep spreading the word. And show solidarity for the oppressed masses of Burma.
