The World Is Responding ... ... At Last

The situation has taken a great turn since the first warning shot was fire. I couldn’t help but feel heartrending about the loss of life in the crackdown. It started as a peaceful protest, and now the junta has advance its operation to a point of not return. Now they are firing automatic weapon at the people, with 9 deaths including a Japanese journalists, the international community is responding more vigorously. But the crisis have not ended, will the people of Myanmar be free ultimately is still a question.

I think we need to put pression on China if we want to achieve something in Burma. One idea is to challenge the Olympics games. To do so I propose to create a picture of 8 people on the 100 m starting blocks, half of them wearing sport outfits, half safran monks outfits. Beside them would be an official (or several officials) holding the starting gun in the air as they used to do in the Olympics, but wearing heavy military outfits.
Since, for a better representation, it is better if the people in the picture has asian face characters, I would like to ask your readers if some group supporting Burma are able to organise such a picture and make it circulating on the web. It would be very good and will force China to question itself. Let me know if you like the idea or if I have been not clear (my english is not so good). Love to Pynois and Burmese.
