Hamutsun Serve.. ??

I didn't know who these guys were until tonight but apparently they're called Hamutsun Serve. A friend sent me a link to one of their videos and then I spotted the Japanese "animation dance" duo on in the New Justin Timberlake and Madonna video '4 minutes'. Fanastic dancing and music - very original.

Burma Video on YouTube

The guys at Rocketboom have done a good job at putting together a useful video on Burma's background. It includes an appeal from Jim Carey the comedian and actor.

Burma Referendum A Disgrace

As well as blocking the distribution of aid relief by external agencies the Military junta is going ahead with a referendum in Burma despite the devastation reeked on the country by a Cyclone last week. It is estimated that up to 100,000 people we killed by the storm. The acts of the Junta truly are disgraceful and have left the rest of the world utterly appalled.

Burma - Brief History

Burma was conquered by Britain in the 19th century. However relatively shortly afterwards The Union of Burma gained independence in 1948. The Burma Social Party held power for the next 26 years during which people were repressed and the economy suffered. In August 1988 thousands of people convened to demonstrate against the government and eventually on September 18th on the same year the army declared a coup. In the run up to the election the famous leader of the National League for Democracy Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested in July 1989. She was released in July 1995. She was placed in and out of house arrest over the next number of years and since 2003 has remained in detention. Since 1992 Bruma has been ruled by the State Peace and Development council under Senior General Than Shwe. The government has been heavily criticised for its human right violations.

Goodbye Bertie Ahern

As the sun sets on Bertie Ahern's last day as taoiseach of Ireland I thought I would post a small note. Being completely subjective I have some admiration for the guy. He sacraficed everything it would appear for politics and achieved some pretty historic results. Achieving peace and properity for Ireland. Something tells me that he will dodge any remaining flack from the Mahon tribunal and will go on to take up another leadership position in Europe or in Ireland as President.
