Today heart breaking message from inside burma. (i will publish english translation in writing of this audio very soon)

theres an audio fragment, but in Burmese..

Also this :

To trick Mr.Gambari, UN envoy, the junta announces through their mouth-piece-media that there is a demonstration in Myitkyiinar . Actually that demonstration is a fake one for the junta wants to prove that their soldiers are not terrorist and not shooting at people and it's also the junta's plan to hide the truth of their terrorist evidences. At the same time, in Rangoon, the riot police are hitting with iron bar to any group of people whether they are demonstrators or not. After hitting violently, they arrest the people who collapse.

And from soneseayar :

An ultimatum to China from the Burmese:


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.

They have given China 72 hrs to comply or the peaceful war ill commence.

A global campaign to boycott the olympics and Chinese goods will begin should China decide to ignore their ultimatum.

An article that outlines the harsh realities of this situation Link

It is titled one monk for every soldier.
Below is the concluding paragraph

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.

BBC has an update on latest events. Link

(From the above link) Sounds like the chat box posters fears may have been realised.

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.

The same story has this quote however.

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.

This my friends is why the right to bear arms is so important. A well armed citizenry could stomp their military police state by sheer force of numbers. Without guns you are like lambs to the slaughter.

Ok, guys. I'll see you at cgiirc later tonight. I'll be translating news like yesterday. Thanks.

Please keep an eye on Myanmar(Burma). Many atrocious things are going to happen. We want the world to witness this time. We do not want another 1988 riot which ended up without any good results.

Thanks for your efforts BetterMyanmar. We will do what we can from this side of the globe.
Stay safe and good luck

I need to do assignments tonight. Don't worry. I'll ask one of my friends to do that in myochit's chatbox or ko-htike's chatbox. Keep an eye on those two blogs.

DVB interview with Poet Aung Way who is in Myanmar (Burma)

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.

Oil companies 'jostling' for access to Myanmar resources. Link

Some here have suggested that oil could make a difference to the level of foreign interest, perhaps this story could then help?

This article is about satellite images being used to confirm reports of villages being burned. Link

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.

Link A number of news items in English. No sources are quoted here though.

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.

Mandalay Division — Mandalay, 5000 people demonstrated. Mogok, monks and townspeople demonstrated. Kyaukbadaung, 1000 monks and 30,000 people demonstrated. NLD members U Kyaw Sein Hlaing, U Than Lwin, U Paw Aye, U Myint Shwe, Ko Ye Tun, Ko Myint Soe were arrested last night.

Magwe Division– In Pakkoku, 2000 monks and 30,000 townspeople demonstrated. Yenangyaung, 200 monks and 30,000 people demonstrated.

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.

Arakan State– Akyab, about 6000 monks and 20,000 people demonstrated. Taungup, 200 monks and 1000 people demonstrated.

Shan State – About 400 people demonstrated in Taunggyi and smashed junta’s ten slogan signboards. Meanwhile, Than Shwe protege Tayza’s Htoo Company offices were closed off amid rumors of a rift between Senior Gen. Than Shwe and his deputy Gen. Maung Aye.

The true story behind 27.9.07 raid of Ngwe-kyar-yan Monastery is that the 200 monks there were not beaten and arrested as reported widely but beaten to death right in the monastery and their bodies carried away on trucks.

That last about the monks being killed is not entirely unexpected, but I do hope it proves false.

We are doing this time because we want to change this govt system. We can't bear it anymore. Monks, students and civilians are now fallen. We can't stop in midway. We will use any method to overthrow this govt. Democratic govt will be in Myanmar at the end
10pm - Yesterday night, military tried to raid monasteries in Thar Kay Tha. Monks tried to warn people to protect them. People shouted at soldiers. Soldiers shot a warning shot into the air and they retreated. The same thing also happened in Insein, Yangon." (From DVB Radio)

"In Shan State, military forcefully asked people in Tar Chi Late to attend their false protest which supports current govt. and criticizes current protestors in Kyine Tone. If they do not come, they are fined with 100 Thailand Currency.
Singapore - Burmese people in Singapore cannot express what we feel freely. There are many disturbs from Singapore govt. We cannot surf websites freely. We will do whatever method to finish this fight."
