<3 Monks

Myanmar pro-Democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, today met with buddhist monks who marched past the police blockade of the street she resides on. The monks are leading a protest against Myanmar's military government. Suu Kyi has been "under detention for more than 11 of the last 18 years, and continuously since May 2003. She is the leader of the National League for Democracy party, which won a 1990 general election but was not allowed to take power by the military."

The involvement of the monks, whom the military government of buddhist Myanmar is reticent to engage with hostility, are encouraging citizens to join in their protests of the government and their actions against the people of Myanmar.
