Holding Our Breath on Myanmar: Is There Hope for Freedom in Burma?

A dawn to dusk curfew has been imposed in Yangon (Rangoon) and Mandalay, and the military trucks are out in force. Assemblies of more than five people have been banned in both cities. The world community is speaking out for freedom in Myanmar (Burma), but there are reports that the soldiers are well equipped with AK-47's.

The BBC and the Guardian have some of the better coverage, and the London based Burma Campaign UK has comprehensive background information, albeit from a biased viewpoint. Surprisingly enough, to my knowledge no blogger's group supporting the will of the people has yet emerged.
