Go to Google in Burma and you’ll get:“Error Number 1045 Access Denied.”
The Burmese military junta has banned Google, according to an article in ecoworldly.com.
Apart from its famous logo being replaced with “Banned,” Google seems unfazed.
The article says that “Despite being banned by the government of Burma (also Myanmar), Google has said that it will donate up to $1 million USD to assist victims of Cyclone Nargis.”
It also says that, “Google has offered to match donations made to UNICEF and Direct Relief International for all donations made at Google’s Support disaster relief in Myanmar page, up to one million dollars.”
