massacres in myanmar
30 September 2007
We just got phone call with our sister living in Yangon about a few
hours ago. We saw on BBC world, saying that 200 monks were arrested.
The true picture is far worse. For one instance, the monastery at an
obscure neighborhood of Yangon, called Ngwe Kyar Yan (on
Wei-za-yan-tar Road, Yangon) had been raided early this morning. A troop of lone-tein (riot police comprised of paid thugs) protected
by the military trucks, raided the monastery with 200 studying monks.
They systematically ordered all the monks to line up and banged and
crushed each one's head against the brick wall of the monastery. One
by one, the peaceful, non resisting monks, fell to the ground,
screaming in pain. Then, they tore off the red robes and threw them
all in the military trucks (like rice bags) and took the bodies away. The head monk of the monastery, was tied up in the middle of the
monastery, tortured , bludgeoned, and later died the same day, today.
Tens of thousands of people gathered outside the monastery, warded off
by troops with bayoneted rifles, unable to help their helpless monks
being slaughtered inside the monastery. Their every try to forge ahead
was met with the bayonets. When all is done, only 10 out of 200 remained alive, hiding in the
monastery. Blood stained everywhere on the walls and floors of the
monastery. Please tell your audience of the full extent of the fate of the monks
please please !!!!!!!!!!!!
'Arrested' is not enough expression. They have been bludgeoned to death !!!!!! (Name withheld to protect the identity)

Not that I think a protest outside the embassy would be very effective. Its not like the miliatry junta particularily cares about their international image.
update: I changed my mind. The protests are to show the UN and western govt's how concerned we are. It causes them to take more action against Myanmar. Even China is postively affected by worldwide opinion. I think China is actually very nervous about it re the Olympics.
Update: they have killed THOUSANDS of monks and dumped the bodies in the jungle.

- O Tannenbaum
I'll be DJing tonight [Fri Oct 22, 2019] down at O Tannenbaum (Sonnenallee 27, Neukölln). I've been hanging out there lately because Pieter plays thick funk from Mali, we argue about Iggy, drink strong Belgian beers and they have girls. And deer.In our last episode: Timeblind is awoken by the sounds of the Nigerian Mafia kicking in his door, intent on recovering the Reel to Reel Tape he stole the previous evening from the Unarius Academy of Science while attending ...
- Welcome to the West
I was in a bar a few weeks back, drunk, talking to some people and listening to this girl tell us about growing up in East Germany. Just to paint a picture: she was very attractive, blond, very lively and also a bit drunk. She mentioned the dolls that they used to have, an Eastern German version of the Barbie Doll and I accidentally joked something like "were the dolls named Helga ?" — she slapped me. Lightly, but to ...
- Mauerfall: people still have the power
I never get tired of watching this. No-one is sure of what to do tonight here in Berlin. I suppose just wander around and look for random and true emotion. The planned actions seem too planned, though I will drop by the mauer-mob project. What might happen if we riot against the banks: One more crowd pleaser, this from Goodbye Lenin. The mother has been in a coma and missed the fall of the wall and re-unification. Under doctor's ...
