Free Burma Day

Today is Free Burma' day: Some bloggers refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4th (today) and will only put up a 'Free Burma' banner instead. Read more about this here: www.free-burma.org.
I think this is a good idea, altough I doubt it will change anything. Who cares about a hand full of bloggers. Most politicans don't even know what a blog or the internet is ("Emh... 'browser'? What's that again?" source, german). Which is also one of the reasons why they passed the resolution to start full surveillance of the internet in the EU.
Back to Burma: Of course it is not nice what is going on there, for years now. But Burma is not the only place we should look at, at all. I could instantly count at least 4 or 5 where states people should look at too or increase media coverage about. And we shouldn't forget about or own states as well: Don't give todays politicans a change to turn our countries into police states just like some of them seem to plan this already.
