Burma activists 'lock on' to Total

Three direct activists have today shut down a busy Total filling station in solidarity with the people of Burma's nonviolent struggle for democracy.

Under a banner saying “May all beings be happy – Free Burma ” the activists have locked themselves together and begun to meditate, locking together the hoses, turning off the power and blocking the entrance to the premises. Report and pics

I Study human rights in Sweden, and the situation in Burma really upsets me and probably the major part of the western world a lot. The good thing thou, is that people are starting to understand the scale of this issue and I think that the leaders of Burma feel they're not really popular in the rest of the world. Eventually maybe that will get them to consider what is going on and what they can do about it.
