The Latest Accounts in Burma



Essentially, in this video the caller/eyewitness describes how the military was beating the monks and kicking them with military boots. They threw the monks onto the army trucks and shot rounds of tear gas into the crowds of bystanders. It happened near the area where many religious items are sold. He points out how the soliders stood on the pagoda grounds with boots on, which is also considered a great disrespect in this deeply religious Buddhist country.

Here is the latest NPR (AP) news report. It horrifies me to read that last night trucks of the miltary raided a monastery in the middle of the night, beat and arrested and took away in the middle of the night. UNACCEPTABLE!!!
