Locked In, Locked Out

Burma's heroic democracy and human rights activists continue to sit in prison while those outside discuss whether or not it is right to participate in these fraudulent elections. Response is reminded of the discussions one can hear or overhear between affluent people surrounded by poverty as they try to convince themselves of the reasons one should not give to beggars. The only support these reasons can claim is in the nods of agreement and the assertions themselves.

"...many continue their activities, at great risk, while in prison. Another function is to instill into the wider population the fear that engaging in politics or activities deemed in opposition to the regime comes at a cost: you pay with your freedom and sometimes your life."
