This report from the Guardian rings very true. How do you like the junta's description of "systematic control"?
It is very hard for people in free country such as Australia to actually comprehend what it feels like to live under total repression, where the army is used to subdue the populace, not guard against external threats. Secret police are the same everywhere they exist, of course.
Anyway it's comforting that, despite the junta's continuing effort s to shut down scrutiny, that Burma remains on the world's agenda. It's the least we can do.
