  • Myanmar cyclone victims are another forgotten victims of natural calamity and state terror by the international societies. State terror by the Myanmar ruling Armed forces are so bad it took several weeks for the out side world to know the cyclone destruction’s. UN finally intervene and made way for the aid agencies to go and help the victims. The struggle for free election and human rights are denied in this nation for a long time. Democratically elected leader is at detention and prevented from meeting her party even. Many Buddhist monks and civilians were killed in a recent protest for freedom and democracy. Though out side world has protested regarding this cruelty China and India are maintaining close economic and diplomatic relation with the army ruling junta.
