“SPDC turns disaster into catastrophe” describes how Burma’s military regime inflicted more injury on its own people in the aftermath of cyclone Nargis.

Burma’s people suffered needlessly as the SPDC obstructed aid and disaster relief teams from entering the country. Much of the aid that did arrive, was appropriated by the junta for its own use or sold to desperate survivors.

As before, the SPDC continues with the second phase of its constitutional referendum while people are evicted from the only shelter they have so that polling places can be readied.
