Any doubts that citizens of all countries should vote down and shout down government attempts to control the internet? Check out the latest violation of civil liberties being perpetrated by the Burmese government. According the UK Guardian Times, USA Today and other major newspapers, the Burmese government apparently cut internet access to stem the tide of images, updates and opinions from protesters to the rest of the world. Even before this, the government there reportedly monitored internet use at internet cafes by taking screen captures every five minutes. If you still have a voice and your government or well meaning protectionist agency hasn’t fully filtered your access as yet, the Democratic Voice of Burma web site is asking for you to show your support of the Burmese people.
