Just yesterday, Jen wrote about the freaky situation going down in Myanmar, but we can’t seem to think of anything more deserving of double disgrace this week. We’re shaking our heads at the attacks directed at monks and supporters protesting for democracy. As more and more news rolls in about the atrocities occurring in Burma, our collective heart feels heavier and heavier.
We have, in fact, just learned that the Myanmar government has apparently cut off public access to the Internet–which has thus far galvanized the movement by keeping those associated mobilized, connected, and informed.
Every minute that this continues is a more shameful one. Although it appears that none of our brethren in Burma can read this, you can. Please show your solidarity by wearing red today, and doing more with your time, voice, and resources.
If ever there was a time to speak loudly, this would be it. No big stick required.
