Free Burma!

Websites and blogs around the world are using today as an opportunity to show support for those involved in the campaign to put pressure on Burma’s State Peace and Development Council. Last week the world heard the cries and saw the defiance of those fighting for a free Burma. Their courage, passion and hope sets an example for us all.

At this time, we would like to share our sympathies with all of those injured in the ongoing protests and offer our thoughts to the families and friends of those who who have been killed.

New Mandala will endeavour to provide information on the uprising over the coming days, weeks and months. Many of our close friends and colleagues – whether journalists, activists or scholars – are heavily involved. We wish them, and everyone else, the very best of luck!
