According to Voice of Amercia Monks who fled Burma are returning to continue the fight for democracy.
David Jimenez , Asia correspondent for El Mundo of Spain and one of the few foreign reporters to slip into Rangoon, witnessed the junta’s brutal crackdown on monk-led Burmese protesters gives us a rare look inside Burma.
He is just a teenager, with his head shaved and his body draped in the red-saffron tunic that has given its name to the revolution. The monk gets up from the floor in a cloud of tear gas and picks up his glasses, broken by the impact of a rifle to his head. Disoriented, he asks me: “Who is going to help us?
“Do they know in your country what’s happening here? Why is nobody coming to help?”
Now it seems the Burmese are about to be left alone once again to confront the darkness. Without the world bearing witness, the darkness will be all-enveloping.
