International bloggers' Free Burma day

Free Burma!

Tomorrow, October 4, 2007, is Free Burma day. Please visit and join the Free Burma! site to show your support. The site has received over 30,000 visits since beginning on four days ago on Sunday, September 30.

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!".

From Ko Htike's Prosaic Collection blog:

Bloggers for Burma to Stage International Online Protest October 4th

Free_burma_peaceThe junta in Burma (aka Myanmar) may have blacked out public internet access in the country in an attempt to prevent information about the military's violent crackdown on protesting monks from getting out, but the move is proving to be too little too late. Now Free-Burma.org has announced an International Bloggers' Day for Burma on October 4th.

Bloggers who wish to show their solidarity with the peaceful protest are being asked to refrain from posting that day and instead display one of the Free Burma banners or images (such as the one at right) that have been created for the online protest.

Thanks to Zooms for making me aware of international bloggers' Free Burma day.
