I am so heartbroken about the situation in Myanmar/Burma. The Burmese people need your prayers and your solidarity.
In addition to news from the regular media, check out the blog of a Burmese expatriate here.
The United Nations will be having a special session on Oct. 2. I e-mailed them to press them to help end the repression. If you go to the United Nations site, there will be a link to e-mail when you click on 'comments' at the bottom of their pages.
Also, if you go to the Amnesty International site, they have an action link for Myanmar with a sample letter to cut and paste into an e-mail to the Minister there urging humane treatment of those arrested, etc. They have the e-mail link and the fax number there that you would use.
We need to stand solidly for human rights all over the globe. With the crackdown in Myanmar, stifling of some protests in Pakistan, we need to be constantly on the alert.
