i've been wanting to do an op-ed illustration about burma, but time's not on my side.
right now, there is a brutal crackdown on the peacful protests led by buddhist monks, the spiritual and moral backbone of the country. an undisclosed number have been killed, detained or disappeared.
this is not like the philippines were a there is a sympathetic military faction to support a peaceful civilian protest like in EDSA I and II. it truly is guns v. prayer beads.
currently, things look bleak in burma, but i can only hope that someday, human rights and democracy return to the country.
