Chit Swe Gets One Month In Prison

It looks like cartoonist Chit Swe was charged with some sort of combination of resisting orders and holding an illegal meeting and gets a month in jail out of it. Those two activities listed as crimes goes to show you how awful repression is in Burma right now. That sounds like a Monday morning at the office to me. There is still some question over whether or not the political subtext of Swe's cartoons played a role in being singled out.
