Subject: French political leaders remain silent on massive arrests Burma
For Free Burma activists and supporters
This is from the Saturday issue Le Monde, French national daily
Translation to follow. It does not cite the number of arrested, nor any
mention of French reaction to the violation of human rights suffered by
the NLD and its leaders. No mention of Total. No mention of French
political or diplomatic interest in the affair!
The French press is currently suffering from the murder of 7 catholic
priests, French nationals, in Algeria, and another French fiasco in
CentraAfrica, with French fleeing the country now plunged in civil war,
and armed conflict against the French Foreign Legion.
