Bad Times in Burma

Tags: ,

As Myanmar's regime cracks down on a growing protest movement, "citizen journalists" are breaking the news to the world...

The Torrent of Bad News - Even Children Are Not Safe

Michelle Malkin: Several popular dissident blogs had already gone dark the past few days before the “damaged underwater cable” shut down Internet accesss.

The fate of one prolific Burmese blogger, Moezack, is unknown. The entire blog has been wiped.

› China: Bloggers side with Burmese monks
> Photo of Japanese journalist Kenji Nagai as he lay dying… HotAir has video here.

Preetam Rai: DVB.no has posted news (in Burmese) about soldiers from #33 battalion allowing the monks to continue the protests in Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar... Kaduang has posted an eyewitness account of yesterdays happening in capital Yangoon... KaDaung - Yangon Messages from CBox

The Latest:

Most of the latest news (real + unconfirmed rumors) are dropped into the comment boxes or Cboxes.

Ever since blogspot domain is being blocked, the Myanmar netizens are making an excellent use of CBox as their news reporting medium.
Many bloggers' Cboxes have been filled with various news especially Niknayman's Cbox.

Now someone has created another CBox ie. http://burmanews.cbox.ws/
to translate all those messages from Niknayman Cbox in english for international outlookers. Currently they are asking for translators for newly created CBox to post in english.

Latest news: http://niknayman.cbox.ws/
Translated news from niknayman cbox:

Blog of Nyein Chan Yar writes that internet, landline and mobile connections are going down in Myanmar.

Cambodian blogger Mean Lux has posted images from a vigil they held in front of Myanmar embassy this morning.

Great post! Good wordspreading! A very scary situation...

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

Free Burma!
International Bloggers' Day for Burma on the 4th of October

International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“.
