Myanmar:Rangoon protests on YOUTUBE

September 26th, 2007 · No Comments

Most media organization have been having trouble getting images out of Rangoon or as the Junta has called it since taking over Government Yangooon,

But risking a lot these people put the videos on YOUTUBE, Google videos, and other sources across the World Wide Web in order to make thier message heard. It isn’t easy and the penalities are stiff if they are caught.

Monks’ Revolution in Rangoon…

So here’s a look at what is happening. Shame news crews are allowed in to be able to show what else might be happening – or that the perspective is limited. But as often in dictatorships or military rule it is in trickles – reports and images flow out like these.

Google and Youtube for now seem to be the only way the images are at least in trickles coming out.

It reminds me of another time and another place. For those too young to remember it was not so long ago news was spread via xerox copies and information and magazines had to be hidden here from where we now have as some put it.

Too much news all the time:  More reactions below:

Bush Outraged:New sanctions vs. Myanmar set

Fact sheet President Bush Addresses The United Nations General Assembly
At the United Nations today, President Bush expressed the outrage of the American people at the continued oppression of the people of Burma. The people of Burma deserve to enjoy basic liberties such as freedom of speech, assembly, and worship. The United States calls on the Burmese regime to engage in a genuine dialogue with its own people, including the leaders of the pro-democracy movement and ethnic minority groups, on a transition to a civilian, democratic government. The Burmese regime should release those who have been arrested for peacefully expressing their views, including Aung San Suu Kyi, and should also exercise restraint in the face of peaceful protests.
