Just a few days ago, I was really pissed off at the prospect of a free election in this country and of how it would inconvenience me.
In complete contrast, 200 people have lost their lives in Burma fighting for the right to have a free election, away from the tyranny of a brutal military regime.
I salute the bravery of all those who have taken to the streets and share in the mourning for those who have brutally lost their lives.
I call on the international community to take whatever measures it can to ensure that democracy is restored to Burma and that those who lead the call for freedom and human rights, including Aung San Suu Kyi are freed to enable them to build a free nation.
I add my voice to the many bloggers who are calling for a Free Burma today, 4 October, 2007.
