    Here is a link to Burmese bloggers from the Independent.

    They tell of the riots and the shootings and the beating of monks in the very precincts of the Shwe Dagon Pagoda itself. That is enough to outrage any Buddhist, devout or not. It made me sick to my stomach. I used to visit the Shwe Dagon all the time when I lived in Rangoon, and it is a very beautiful and peaceful place. To think that monks were beaten by thugs on its premises is nauseating. I can only imagine what the Burmese feel about it if it sickens me.

      The violance against monks is unbeliveable and foolish, this will finally be the undoing of the Junta when that comes to pass.

      People witness and remember.

      And now the world is watching.
