Och genom att göra detta hjälper man folket i Burme för att..... hmm ja inte har jag någon aning hur dom blir hjälpta av det iallafall.
Vad vill oppositionen? Ta reda på det medans ni demonstrerar. Kanske blir deras alternativ inte ett dugg bättre.
Manifestation (från latin) används i svenska i betydelsen yttring, offentliggörande och som beteckning för en demonstration för att uttrycka en opinion, vanligtvis utförd utan slagordFör att visa vårt stöd, för att exilburmeser kan hälsa till sina släktingar att i det land uppe i norr, där de bor just nu, bryr sig folk om Burma... Oppositionen vill verka för internationell solidaritet!
Just writing in to say that the demonstration in Stockholm last evening (Medborgarplatsen) was perhaps the most ridiculous,pointless demonstration I have ever been to. I came from Uppsala, theminute I heard about this demo. In retrospect it seems like a hugewaste of time and effort. Had it not been for the sheer presence of so many kind and considerate people who showed up (in red) in such large numbers, the demonstration - in the manner in which it was organized - would have been an insult to the extraordinary courage of buddhist monks and burmese lay people - many who have fallen, and many more who are laying down their lives as we speak (and by refusing to resort to violence, teaching us what it truly means to be "civilized")There was no march to the Chinese embassy. No direct show of solidarity. For god's sake, we could have at least lit some candles.Nothing. Instead, we stood there for an hour, listening to speechafter mindless speech from ridiculous representatives of all swedish political parties, some of whom couldn't even pronounce Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's name correctly. Every person who came there, knew why they were there. The last thing we needed was lecturing (in replay mode). The same token phrases were repeated ad nauseam, till they all seemed hollow. It seems each political party was trying to win points by showing they cared for the people of Burma. Where was the march, the slogans, the singing ? It was all deeply disappointing.C'mon Stockholm, we can surely do better !!Pradyumna Singh (Uppsala)
