Free Burma!

About “Free Burma!”
International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“.

  • A Threat? For What?

    I got this message from my contact form this evening.

    Fiji Military really threatening me? For what? Just because they see my link on one politic blog? If it’s for real then send it as a formal letter with proper military seals. Come get me at my office since you know where I work.

    I want a proper explanation from Military or whoever behind this nasty email. I strongly feel this as a serious harassment and would like to take action against it. This is a form of terrorizing the public. They are trying to demolish freedom of speech, most importantly shutting up bloggers’ voices, and leave people in terror to suck up to them.

    Or is this some bad joke? Whoever playing this kind of sick joke will get caught one day and get punished. But to threaten someone like that, is just unbearable. If you wanted to make other people miserable then you just succeeded. I couldn’t have my dinner in peace and ate very little, you damn arses #@$%!

    The more they do this kind of threats, the more they’ll be degraded by countrymen and there’ll be no place for Fiji in the international/public eyes.

    Politic is nonsense. Fiji politic is shit hole. I’ll be damned if I know how to spell the president’s name right or know who the vice president is. You are messing with someone who don’t give a shit about politic. So bite me.
    Some freakin’ arses spoiling my friday evening! @#%!$ Garr GARRRRRRR!!

    PM – The Army Commander

    Frank BainimaramaI watched 6 o’clock news about yet another new PM swearing-in. This time it’s the big guy himself. I thought last time Bainimarama was accepting some applications for PM post. I guess no one cares to apply for it so he fills himself in.
    Moreover, he is now taking two positions?? – PM as well as Military Commodore. I wonder how he will manage that.

    Army commander and coup leader Voreqe Bainimarama has been sworn in as Fiji’s interim prime minister.

    At a press conference, Cdre Bainimarama said he will hold on to the RFMF Commander’sposition while he discharges his duty as the Interim PM.
    Via Daily Post.

    I’m wondering how are they going to address him – “The Honorable Commondore Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, Sir”. Whoa, what a long title. I need some water.

    Mean while, military checkpoints are still in action and it’s kinda fun watching those soldiers standing in the rain. I think they got pay hourly rate or something. I think people around the country feel more secure with soldiers on the road as it reduces crime rate and more good night sleep.

    It’s a mix feeling among people. Some approve of military take over (quite alot actually) and some don’t (more like international media and relations). What about my feelings? Hey who cares what I feel or think right? I’m ok as long as there is no shooting or bloodshed. But it’s not so cool if this affects country economy and reputation. Come to think of…ditch reputation, cos’ every country has the goods and the bads so yes only economy to consider. So I still disapprove of the pay cut policy! Humph!
