More than 100 monks have marched in central Burma, the first time they have returned to the streets since last month’s bloody crackdown on protests.
The monks chanted and prayed as they marched through Pakokku, the site of an incident last month that triggered pro-democracy protests nationwide.
Witnesses at Wednesday’s march said the monks did not make any overt political statements but that the rally was clearly in defiance of the junta.
In the wake of the crackdown on protesters last month, public gatherings of monks in Burma have been banned and many monasteries remain deserted.
“Our demands are for lower commodity prices, national reconciliation and immediate release of [pro-democracy leader] Aung San Suu Kyi and all the political prisoners.”
In my opinion, we must now invade Burma.
It has become obvious that the theft of Congress’s balls, ovaries, spine, guts, integrity, fortitude, and persistence can be traced directly to the Burmese Monks.
Despite the fact that thousands have quite possibly been beaten, tortured imprisoned and killed….they are back in the streets. An epic act of bravery and dedication to their cause.
