On Thursday a bomb went off in downtown Rangoon. The bombing occurred on the day before the first anniversary of the 2007 crackdown on the monks and citizen protesters of Burma. The army is apparently clamping down on the city. The Irrawaddy reports on speculation that the bombing may have been orchestrated by the regime to justify a major clampdown Friday.
Over the next several days, this blog will commemorate the demonstrations of September 2007.
