Some learning for all ---------

Indeed, Burma situation is today full of meaning for all. On one side, the monks are teaching how to be engaged, listening, compassionate, protesting for human rights and democracy, and all that in a peaceful and worthy style.

On the other hand, we all have something to learn from the propaganda in the Myanmar official news. They are saying that the monks attacked the houses and forced people to demonstrate, that the riots are conducted by hooligans, drug addicts and even terrorists.... Sometime we have to worry about similar grammars in our own newspapers ; are they using the same language when something happens at home (remember the French rioting in 2006 ?).
