We are the 8888 student activists overseas who have been relentlessly seeking for the freedom of Burma from the military rule in Burma, side by side with the 8888 generation in Burma since 1988. As you have already known, Burma has become the most important trouble spot in Asia quite sometime. That was why the Burma's crisis drew the attention of the UNSC to do something about it. And, the US and EU's effort to take action against the regime in Burma under the mandate of UNSC was vetoed by China and Russia on Jan 12, 2007.
So how will the Burmese people respond to soldiers aiming their guns at unarmed monks? How can they respond? If they are able to push aside a lifetime of oppression and fear, they can make martyrs of themselves and walk out into the street towards the guns. And the monks could do the same - if they are still able to mass themselves - there is, after all, at least one monk for every soldier willing to shoot him.
State television had earlier announced that peace and stability had returned to Burma and that a pro-government rally had been held in the northern state of Kachin.
UK Ambassador Mark Canning told the BBC there was an extremely heavy military presence and he saw a couple of severe beatings of protesters, one a middle-aged woman.
Cries from Aung Way
Snr. General Than Shwe, you can only save burma and your army
Please do not use mercenaries and soldiers to kill people who are peacefully protesting.
You can't save people like that.
Mr. Than Shwe, please release Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and all politicians.
Please discuss with everyone.
Therefore, according to Teachings of Buddha, please save our country with your help, Mr. Than Shwe.
*Crying for about 10 secs*
I really feel a lot.
*Reads his poem*
Please only ask one or two questions.
But while the junta can control the street, the monasteries and even the web, they can't control the sky. On Friday the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), working with Burmese groups, released a new analysis of high-resolution satellite images that pinpointed evidence of human rights violations in the eastern Burma. For the first time in Burma, scientists were able to use orbital satellites to confirm on-the-ground reports of burned villages and forced relocations of civilians by the military. The technique has already been used to document human rights abuses in Zimbabwe and Darfur, but in Burma, a closed country that often seems like a modern-day version of Orwell's 1984, it's almost like turning Big Brother against itself. "We are sending a message to the military junta that we are watching from the sky," said Aung Din, policy director for the U.S. Campaign for Burma.

In Yangon, military junta summoned all high school principals and asked four students from each school. Their plan is to make fake monks and lie Mr. Gambari that monks are actually from their side.
Rangoon– On the day Mr. Gambari arrived in Burma, and after the junta has declared peace and stability restored on Rangoon’s streets, 70,000 demonstrators including some monks demonstrated in downtown Rangoon. The demonstrations were mainly led by high school students. Troops fired warning shots but no direct firing was made. However, demonstrators were cordoned off, beaten and arrested. Many escaped and staged demonstrations in other parts of downtown. About 30 MPs and Ma Su Su Nway participated in the demonstrations.
Yesterday night, when security troops entered a monastery in Hlaing Township Ward 8, ward residents shouted and chased them off.
When a monastery was raided last night in Tharkayta Township, guard monk set off an alarm bamboo clap prompting the ward residents to attack the troops. The troops fired back wounding one monk, it is learnt. However, junta forces retreated.
Also in North Okklapa, raiding troops were driven back from a monastery near Mae Lamu Pagoda by ward residents who attacked them with catapults and sling-shot-fired darts.

Kachin State– Myitkyina, the junta held a pro-junta mass rally at the football ground this morning. Over 20,000 people from Myitkyina, Wainmaw, Bhamo and Mogaung cities were forcibly conscripted to attend the rally. However, when a Maj. Gen. Thein Zaw moved to denounce the current demonstrations by monks and people all over Burma, the attendees shouted, “Our cause! Our cause!” instead of “Aye! Aye!” Such shouting made Thein Zaw lose his composure and exit the rally in haste. The rallying ground was sealed off during the meeting but before the event was over attendees forced the gates open and got out en masse. Two members each per every household were forced to attend the rally. Bhamo, over 30 detained monks are staging a hunger strike in prison.

To take records of Dead Bodies in the River
Burmese democratic activists have announced to inform and to take records and photographs of any corpses at the lower delta of Yangon River and Hlaing River in Yangon.
Admin: University Avenue , the road infront of Aung San Suu Kyi's home, is being cleared. We suspect that Gambari is going to meet her.
