Burma bans assemblies of 5 or more people to “keep it above Singapore’s limit”

The military junta in charge of Burma on Tuesday banned assemblies of five or more people after faced with massive protests from barefoot monks. Singapore Donkey has learned that Senior General Than Shwe decided on the number five after conferring with Singapore’s PM Lee, his close friend. PM Lee advised him to “set the number low.” Some ruling generals privately told PM Lee that they regret not thinking of this kind of law before, and also expressed admiration for his father MM Lee’s legal know-how. “We made a terrible mistake by putting our democracy activist [Aung San Suu Kyi] under house arrest. We should have put her in prison and sued her instead, like you did to your activists.”

Inside Burma, the state-controlled press lauded the government’s actions against the “communist-led” monks, and quipped that Burma’s new law banning peaceful assemblies of more than five people are 25% “more liberal” than Singapore’s law, which bans assemblies of more than four people. Singapore, along with China, is now devoting considerable resources to keeping the Burmese junta in power. “We don’t want the Burmese people to find out about some of the business deals we have with their dictators, especially those two rubber trees I own just outside Mandalay.  Please keep the protestors from breaking off any branches.”

    International Bloggers’ Day for Burma on the 4th of October

    International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words „Free Burma!“.
