Brave Burmese Bloggers

In Uncategorized on October 1, 2007 at 7:15 pm

Ellee Seymour has a post on her blog paying tribute to the brave bloggers of Burma. I too would like to be associated with those remarks. Those bloggers troubled the junta so much they switched the Internet off, however before they did, they kept us informed in only a way a blog can. To me this is the great revolution that is blogging. Anyone, anywhere in the world, can sit at their computer and tell us their story and it worries those in authority. And I don’t just mean in Burma. Gordon Brown would love to regulate blogs. He doesn’t want us to get our opinions across in an unregulated way. Brown’s middle name should be control. If he can’t control it, chances are he’ll want to abolish it.

As we pay tribute to brave bloggers thousands of miles away, we have to stay awake and make sure none of our ‘blogging rights’ are stripped away here.

  1. Free Burma!
    International Bloggers’ Day for Burma on the 4th of October

    About “Free Burma!”

    International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“.
