HRW Report: Crackdown

AFTER INTERVIEWING NEARLY 100 eyewitnesses in Burma, the New York-based Human Rights Watch has released its report on the violent crackdown in Burma this past fall (via BBC).

The report makes no recommendations to the Burmese junta, on the grounds that such pleas would be futile, and instead prods surrounding nations like China and India to take action. The entire report can be found here, and a haunting photo montage on the crackdown is here.

The people of Burma have sacrificed much in their effort to be free, and endured unimaginable repression. The least we can offer is our support. Please write to your local representatives – wherever in the world you may be.

    Thanks for the reminder, sometimes it is too easy to get blinders on and only remember the things we see daily in the news. I’ll send my congressperson a note today.
