Shame, or cowardice . . . . people are choosing against the cyberslavery put upon them in test case new deliberate designs of "repression-cities", as much a test for the world as was the nazi slave labour deathcamps - or peenemunde. Could global institutions have had pride in their actions if the retort to, say, the attempts at a breakout in Sobibor have limits of stopping the passports or overseas credit of the Auschwitz troops? A town a week is destroyed as we "wait."
Perhaps other flags need hiding too.
Or we could force people to rethink token gestures.
Yes, the USA climate talks is a muggers meeting discussing voluntary limits to muggings, yes kids should all have the safety to sleep without getting abducted . . . . but if we let this hi-tech repression experiment in Burma suceed, then as sure as the poll tax was tested on the scottish then put upon all the british people, in this little world of 2007, if we let "tax- haven" based corporations use the current leadership of Burma as puppets for looting by proxy, we cheapen all the people of the world.
Despite the threats, people have AGAIN come out on the streets - from sun-up to sunset. A curfew, knocks in the night, people "disappear". . . . what do YOU do.
Thes people came out AGAIN - MORE of them. MOMENTS. If you leave it later, the tools of repression are strengthened. Its 1938, in european terms. Or later. 1941 in USA terms. GET REAL. The moments that are about to pass you by are YOUR times to get stood up too.
Provocations, set-ups, we expect all this . . . . but the legitimacy of the democratic forces that couild enter talks is more certain compared to the iraqi situation - what are the "publicity groups" that pushed for intervention THERE saying.
Four people shot outside a hotel as I type.
But it is YOUR FUTURE TOO.

pressure>INQUIRIES>WATCHING THE PRIORITISATION OF PAPERS, OF BROADCASTS.PRESSURE. SUPPORT.SEE THE GOOD IN THE CHOICE OF THIS MOMENT TO PUSH IN THAT "ONCE IN TWENTY YEARS" MOMENT _ BUT ALSO PERHAPS A LAST MOMENT AS "REPRESSION/CYBERSLAVE- LABOUR TECH SHUTS OFF FUTURES - as much to the disasters of "dystupia" as "yes-men-ism" side effects destroy sensible, safe options, to poison the world. . . . but
200 monks "under arrest" - but there are a HECK of a lot more ! ! ! !
It strengthens my pride in all peoples possible strength, REAL strength, to see these people rush back to the streets, again, again, again, again . . . .
The colours drain from ALL flags that forget their GOOD meaning each HOUR that too little is done to match such BIG souls of "ordinary" people, that REMEMBER WHAT SPIRIT IS
. . . . THAT REMEMBER JUSTICE
. . . . . . . . THAT REMEMBER "2=2=4"
. . . . . . . . THAT BOUNCEBACK WITH "HAPPY BUDDHA" GRINS, WITH PRIDE, WITH MUTUAL RESPECT, WITH THAT IRREPRESSIBLE TUNE that IS picked up on the other side of the world to bounce back again

But perhaps pressure YOUR "news", YOUR "representation", YOUR sense to see moments to "get up". . . . YOUR irrepressible tunes.
strength when YOU need it -
remember to grin too. . . .
picking up those bouncing tunes over the ether . . . .
