Burma - Democracy Still Dead

-- by Dave Johnson

The corrupt government in Burma is still there, still imprisoning monks, still reppressing its people.

Myanmar's missing monks still a mystery months after crackdown,

Bangkok - Two months after Myanmar's brutal crackdown on peaceful protests in Yangon led by Buddhist monks, the former capital is noticeably short of monks, a senior US diplomat said Friday.

'Prior to September, almost any place you looked in Rangoon (Yangon) there were 25 to 50 monks, they were everywhere, but now you only see one or two,' said Shari Villarosa, charge d'affaires of the US embassy in Myanmar, also known as Burma.

Don't forget about Burma.
