Making themselves heard?

The current stand-off between the military regime and pro-democracy protestors in Myanmar/Burma is pretty nasty, given the number of deaths that have already occurred.

However, I did hear something on the radio today related to this situation that made me chuckle.

A posh-sounding British foreign official was describing the latest situation in the country and produced this corker of a description:

“There are still knots of small protestors demonstrating on the streets.”

Now, I know what he wanted to say, but I immediately had visions of small groups of Burmese dwarves tramping up and the down the pavements brandishing mini placards written in coloured pencil.

Just me then…!
