Hope for Burma October 21, 2007

Posted by Philip Ryan in General.

Three trends that will keep Burma on the world’s radar: diplomatic pressure from the West and China, increasing interconnectedness due to globalization, and the internet, particularly petitions by groups such as MoveOn.org.

Don’t give up hope on hitting the Burmese generals where it hurts, says Tom Malinowski of the Washington Post. Try smart, targeted sanctions, among other things.

And a postcard from Burma: “Please tell others what you have seen here.”
