"Muslims, Christians and Hindus defending the monasteries"

An interesting report of effective local resistance on Thursday from the Democratic Voice of Burma:
At Min Nanda monastery, which backs on to Pazuntaung creek, troops tried to approach from both land and water but retreated when they saw the strength of local resistance.

“There were not only Buddhist people but also Muslims, Christians and Hindus defending the monasteries,” said a resident of Tharkayta township.

A similar story has been played out in other townships in Burma, as residents take action to resist government raids on monasteries.
Truly, the people of Burma are an inspiration to the whole world.
