I have been very concerned about the situation in Myanmar/Burma. I have been meaning to do some research and write a post on it. I checked out Incognito's blog last night and she has done some excellent research and written several very comprehensive posts on what is going over there. Please take the time to read them.
In her first post, "Living In Fear in Myanmar fka Burma- and the Buddhist protests", she explains the history of Burma and how they've gotten to the place they are now. In her second one she gives the details on the Free Burma Blogger Campaign. I encourage everyone to go to their site and join the list of participants and to grab one of their graphics and put it on your blog. I've got a smaller version of this graphic in my sidebar.
The above video is one that was smuggled out since there has been a major crackdown there on any communication. It gives just a glimpse of some of the violence that is going on there.
Here are Incognito's posts and other bloggers who have also posted on this important issue, take the time to check them out:
