Tragedy in Myanmar Continues

For the past 5 days I have been monitoring the tragedy that is Myanmar. This I am writing for those who are not connected with this situation such as the many Burmese blogggers that have been on top of this since before the protest started this past week. These bloggers know all too well the horrors that have taken place these past 5 days and what is yet to come as the Junta cruelly continues to suppress protests. Right now there is a blogger in danger that is being sought by  the Junta  and we are praying he eludes them.
From what I have been able to gather, most of which is from other reports across the net and cannot be totally confirmed though I don’t doubt them, there seems to have been a slaughter of monks at one of the monasteries.  200 monks there were not beaten and arrested as reported widely but beaten to death right in the monastery and their bodies carried away by trucks.

Many of the monks are being held in the Kyite-Ka-San Horse Racing Arena. The monks are not allowed to wear robes, they are forced to squat down as prisoners under the sun during the day-time and are forced to change into civilian clothes.

SPDC ( State Peace and Development Council ) is trying to hack the websites and blogs which are anti-SPDC, from overseas with the help of hired hackers from Russian Federation. Therefore, website owners and bloggers from overseas, should be on alert on this issue.

Today ( Oct. 1, 2007 in Burma )  there is supposed to be a general strike by the Myanmar people.  More than 200 of young people riding on motorbikes protested in Myanmar’s second city of Mandalay today. These protest were broken up by soldiers firing tear gas.
There is currently a peaceful protest in front of the Myanmar Embassy in Singapore.

In cities such as Mawlamyaing, Pha-An, Taungoo, Myawaddy, military regime is forcing people to gather and show support for them this evening. Every household is forced to supply 3 persons. Other cities in Myanmar are also going through similar situations. Most phone lines in cities outside yangon are cut off.
Today, ( Sept.30) there are about 10,000 people protesting near ThaMine junction from 2PM (local time) during the rain.
The Associated Press reported that A U.N. envoy held back-to-back meetings Sunday with Myanmar’s military rulers and detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi as he sought a peaceful solution to the government’s crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators.

There are list of the dead but these you will have to obtain from one of the various Burmese Bloggers since I have no way of verifying names or if the information is correct and would not want to cause anyone undo anguish.

UN Designated Official in Rangoon has established a 24 hour hotline in case of emergency, especially during curfew hours. The numbers to call are: 01 554 597 or 01 554 625.
And of course there are pictures and videos at various locations on the net. I have included a few links here but there are many more on the Burmese sites.

FOR UPDATED PICTURES, PLEASE SEE ORIGINAL SOURCE SITES:

There are other sites but presumably they have been hacked and can no longer be accessed. I have tried accessing some of them with no luck. These I assume are the ones within Myanmar.

    ignored the government’s successes in concluding the National Convention, economic development and gains made in the areas of education, health and transportation.

    That is very true… They just care about their family wealth.

  2. myanmar people Says:

    Look at the education system, Just compare with last 20 years. Now in the drain.

    Living standard of our people… getting poor.

    The people who made money from drug become rich they got white money. the educated people become poor, normal people doing a simple business were highly tex.
