More Families Displaced by Burma Army

We just got an email this morning saying another 33 families (204 people) have been forced from their villages in Burma and are moving to a safer location (safer, not SAFE) near the border of Thailand.   The place they are fleeing to has been burned down by the Burma army several times in the past.  Their situation  is a direct result of the continued oppression of the Burma Army, which has destroyed over 3,300 villages in the last 10 years.  If the world were just, fair, or remotely reasonable, it would be the generals on trial and Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma would be free.  Instead, she faces prison, and they continue driving families from their homes and taking or destroying the little they own.
