Burma's Saffron Revolution: Quick News Link List

Links and Summary from Fall 2007

BURMA'S SAFFRON REVOLUTION: QUICK NEWS LINK LIST:

Since mid-August, a nonviolent movement for political change has been gathering steam throughout Burma, with over 100,000 people marching in the streets by September 25. The massive and countrywide demonstrations have been led by surviving students of the 1988 Democracy uprising, and by Buddhist monks and nuns chanting for compassion on behalf of the people. This courageous action, being joined by all kinds of people from all faiths may lead to true national reconciliation in Burma. Even if the regime turns its guns on the protests, as it did in the past, the momentum has begun and the people's need for freedom will not be denied much longer. The links below provide background information on the protests and ongoing updated multimedia reports, including extraordinary smuggled film footage, a testimony to this liberation struggle's meeting of ancient chants for peace with modern global access technology. In addition to the links below, see www.uscampaignforburma.org for action suggestions, in which the international community can show its support for Burma's Saffron Revolution.
