I am wearing my red shirt today.

The Sidney Morning Herald has a story from an Australian eyewitness of the military crackdown on protesters that took place yesterday in Rangoon.

In another SMH article Myanmar officials claims that the countrywide interruption in internet services has been due to a damaged underwater cable. Troops have sealed off the center of Rangoon with barbed wire.

Even Forbes is reporting in the internet crackdown.

The International Herald Tribune reports that a single Facebook group on Burma has attracted some 100,000 members in less than 10 days in an expression of internet solidarity.

A review of satellite images (download) by the American Association for the Advancement of Science reveal the effects of the junta's program of ethnic cleansing. More details in the Timesonline article.
