Default Show your support for our friends in Burma

The people of Burma are suffering under the iron fist of a brutal millitary regime. As I write this, peaceful demonstrants and munks are beeing shot at by the millitary forces.

Show your support to the people of Burma tomorrow by wearing a red shirt.

Hi Erlend,
Yes, you are right.
As you might have known of, a cameraman/reporter of our nationality was
shot to death from a very close range. This may develope a great issue
not only between Burma and our country, but also throuout the world.
But the situation seems to be calmed down.
Stan

Yes, I think his name was Kenji. I remember because I have a japanese friend that's also named Kenji. Anyway, it's a terrible thing happening.

The situation may have calmed down a little, but I have heard reports of the government forcing civilians to perform counter-demonstrations on the military governments' behalf. This is just a play for the rest if the world. How tasteless is that?

Erlend.
He was not one of the demonstrators, so there was absolutely no reason
for being shot from a very close distance.
Burmese government insists that he was unfortunately shot by stray
bullets, but this is clearly a lie because the video recorded the incident
perfectly. It seems that the case has been calmed down by military forces,
but the wrold must know the roots should be removed before the tree dies
down.

By the way, Erlend, I posted Bananas.org asking if the pollen of 3n(for
instance Saba/Cardaba) is good for manual pollination for Sikkimensis(2n).
But until today nobody replied, whether or not neglecting, not knowing,
not willing or for any other reasons. My Cardaba? started blooming again
and if it is good, I like to use the pollen next spring for manual pollination
for Sikkimensis.
