Don't go to Burma -

Don't go to Burma.
The political situation is heated up again -

extremist Buddhist 969 groups have been sponsored by junta and attacking Muslims

Two days ago UN Human Rights rapporteur Tomas Ojea Quintana's convoy was attacked by 200 people in an orchestrated attack reminiscent of May 30, 2003 attack on Daw Aung San Suu Kyi (now called Depayin Massacre) -- They also sponsored "demonstrations" against Quintana in Sittwe and Meikhtila.

Reporting sparse because 1. Burmese language overseas media already bought out by junta. 2. international media still wants to think there is "reform."

If you have made travel plans already, cancel them.
