[liberationtech] Burundi

Yep, but they aren't technically offline. Yaga Burundi for example may not
be posting regularly on their site, but they are coordinating online and
members are posting via twitter and other means.

With today's announcement that the President will not seek revenge but only
prosecute those involved the coup, individuals are cautiously hopeful, but
we'll see what happens next.

Also, I don't believe all those social media are still blocked, or perhaps
they were unblocked during the coup and reblocked.
