Burma News CB:


29 Sep 07, 18:50
Ko Hla: There will be a special news about Myanmar Military on DVB (Democratic Voice of Burma) tonight. Not only the people but also military personnel should listen to that news.

29 Sep 07, 18:46
Ko Hla: ** Sorry: Correction: Please read (Gen. Maung Aye gave command the military force to SHOOT to the people )

29 Sep 07, 18:44
Ko Hla: People are peacefully protesting in Mandalay and no report of shooting as well.

29 Sep 07, 18:43
Ko Hla: Ngwe-Kyar-Yan monastery, which was raided by SPDC in early morning Thursday, is in immediate cover-up. So that when the envoy from UN comes to check at it, the monastery will look like nothing has happened.

29 Sep 07, 18:42
Ko Hla: From Internal Source: Now, a split within Myanmar’s ruling junta has emerged. Several ministers such as Aung Thaung, Maung Thaung, Kyaw Hsan, Maung Oo and Thein Zaw are on Gen. Than Shwe side. Generals split between those who want to follow General Than Shwe and those who want to follow Gen. Maung Aye. According to a brigadier general, Gen. Maung Aye gave command the military force to short to the people who loot and destroy public’s properties. But Gen. Than Shwe followers do not agree with that command. That BG also suggests the protesters should not shout slogan against the entire military force.


Burma Myanmar Genocide:

5:01 PM
NikNayman: A peaceful demonstrations is going on now at Mandalay. No shooting reported.

Attacked Monastery Urgently Being Repaired
Niknayman: We were recently reported that Ngwe Kyar Yan Monastery, which was raided, and attacked 2 days ago at South Okkalarpa, Yangon, is now urgently being repaired to eliminate evidences.

On Meddwatch someone was confirming yangon is under Junta control .

The story about The General who ordered to shoot is contradicting stories of yesterday where was said he was the one opposing it.

I already reported that yesterday.

The CB at ko htike is up again.

Seems like today is less violent than yesterday, with the UN present and everything. Only scattered reports of single unconfirmed deaths. Protests seem peaceful so far.

Yeah, BBC is confirming it only today though.

Also Gambari is heading to a place where none or not much protests are.

It is mainly confusion at the moment. It has been confirmed that certian military units have changed sides, but numbers and names are lacking.
Hopefully there is a split in the leadership. That would mean that the foundations of the dictatorship is cracking.

I truly hope there are cracks within the leadership of the military, Raud. So we can see a fast and peaceful resolution to all this...And who knows, maybe even a transition to a more peaceful and just Myanmar over the longer term...

The people of Myanmar don't deserve this, after all the hardship they have to go thru day to day...

Peace

P.S - thanks to you, DWT, Drozla and others for keeping us updated on what's going on over there...This issue has really struck a chord with me and has me interested and hopeful this all works out for the best

Ko Hla: We would like to urge people around the world to request UN that UN special envoy Mr. Ibrahim Gambari to meet with the real people (NOT with the people arranged by the Junta) through hotline and email. Otherwise Mr. Gambari will only see skyful lies of Myanmar Junta.
29 Sep 07, 19:31

Ko Hla: Mr. Gambari MUST GO TO Yangon. People are dying and protesting at Yangon. Naypyidaw is a ghost town where only government officials and generals reside. Please… if someone from UN reading this message, contact Mr. Gambri NOW and insist that he must see Yangon. Help us!! Help Myanmar (Burma).


cgiirc:



BetterMyanmar: From yesterday morning till now, Military cut off Internet. Burmese people can only view local websites. People from all over the world cannot access local websites. Burmese people cannot use web-mails either. Only Myanmar hosting sites can be viewed in Myanmar. Military isolated local database. No one from other countries can access local websites because of that. (DVB Radio)

cgiirc (direct translation from DVB radio by username "BetterMyanmar"):


BetterMyanmar: Today is 12th day of monks' demonstration.
Yesterday night, military raided other monasteries in other townships, but residents protected monks.
Yangon - Young students are very active in protests. The students' age ranged from 5th Standard to 10th Standard. Those students are protesting in different areas despite tight security in Yangon.


Mizzima:


(Burmese Standard Time)

4:30 p.m
Monks detained inside monasteries in Mandalay

Security forces continue to guard all the monasteries in Mandalay and impose restrictions on movement of monks, effectively barring monks from protesting.

" The forces have cordoned off several monasteries including Ma Soe Yein and Mya Taung with barbed wires so that the monks cannot come out of the monasteries to protest. And fully armed soldiers guard the monasteries. Because of the blockade monks are heard shouting from inside," an eyewitness told Mizzima.

The eyewitness added that novices and young monks have been ordered to go back to their native places by police officials.

Another eyewitness said the Mandalay prisons director with two vehicles from the transport corporation department took several prisoners to a field in the foot of the Mandalay hill and asked a barber to shave off their heads.

The eyewitness added that the authorities are forcing the prisoners to act as monks to create confusion and misunderstanding among the monks as well as the public so that they lose faith in the Buddhist clergy.

More translations by "BetterMyanmar" from DVB radio (Democratic Voice of Burma), taken from cgiirc:


Around 3PM, Pan Soe Dan Street, Yangon - 200 or 300 students and many civilians are protesting. I heard a gunshot. I don't know if it's rubber bullet. They also interfere civilians meeting with students. Military is now blocking the ways to get to Traders Hotel around 10 PM today while they usually block around 12 PM. All ways are blocked. Around 12 PM, there was heavy rain.
5PM, Yangon - Protesters were shot and arrested. Many monks were arrested. 300 Monks were arrested in Insein Prison. Those monks were tried to change back to human, but one of the head of monks refused. Monks were arrested beside Garage near GTI school. Yesterday, military ordered to take the robe of the monk who was with a gunshot in his leg. However, doctors cured the monk. The monk even said don't cure me if u are going to take off my robe.
Mr. Gambari will be taken to Nay Pyi Taw or Myit Kyee Nar.
Today, the military are restraint. There's a special weapon in the soldiers' hands.
"Col. Than Han and Aung Thaung created a violence group to kill people. The soldiers who are known as Army Division 77 and killed people are not actually from ARmy division 77" says an anonymous officer from Army Division 77.
Right now, Burmese people from other countries are afraid of Military's lies to Mr. Gambari.

GTI (Govt. Tech. Institute) is also a place to detain people who particpated in protests.

People are content with today's protests style. They group and disperse when they see Soldiers. Making soldiers fools.

At 8pm, we will hit the "Kyay Si" (A traditional instrument to make a sound) to comemorate fallen Monks Heroes and people. This is also a sign of opposition against military. Please spread that news.

5:30 p.m.

Mr. Gambari, UN Secretary-General's special adviser on Burma, has reportedly arrived in Nay Pyi taw to talk with the junta leaders.

5:20 p.m.

Mr. Gambari and security in Rangoon

"Mr. Gambari has arrived in Rangoon. But we did not see him being escorted. We don't know where he has been taken. But in front of Traders Hotel people are being cleared. This morning the authorities also shifted the Sule bus stop to in front of Thamada Cinema. For those bus drivers who did not realize the route change, as soon as they stopped the bus, passengers coming out of the bus were beaten up by soldiers eyewitnesses told me. The soldiers began to clear since 11 or 12 today. At Sule bus stop there are about five to six army trucks. They are in a row. Now that the rain is starting to pour, and since the passengers were beaten up, there are very few people in sight," an observer told Mizzima.

"Markets like Theingyi markets have been declared closed for four days. On Sule street soldiers are constantly on guard so as not to allow anybody to come near. There are about 16 army trucks with about six or seven fire engines, and about two Dyna light truck used by Swan Arrshin and USDA members. It is like a military headquarter now, I even want to name it "Trader Military headquarters"," the observer added.

Latest news from DVB translated by "BetterMyanmar" at cgiirc:

"People are so angry and they are asking govt. staffs and farmers to join revolution. Farmers do not have much benefits. Military took all the crops. Farmers also have feelings. People are asking the workers and govt staffs to join revolution. An arrested comedian "Zar Ga Nar" said that everyone needs to go up one step from only watching protests.
We want to ask Mr. Gambari to present real situations of Myanmar. Real situations mean people are being shot by soldiers with order of military junta. The military junta is making everyone to look each other as enemies.
We came out to the road because of very tight situation in economy and politics."
Leader of student's organization in Myanmar, Ko Kyaw Ko Ko said above words.
