Monk Protests in Rangoon and Elsewhere in Burma (Myanmar)

The website has fantastic photos of protests from around Burma, and comprehensive coverage from the Burmese state of Arakan (Rakhine). Narinjara is really worth taking a look at.

Burma Digest has photos and the site links to a video by Ko Htike showing that "Many tens of Thousands of people led by Monks and celebrity artists peacefully demonstrating against military regime, on 24.09.2007, in central Rangoon, near Sule Pagoda."

Burma Digest has other coverage of the protests in Burma:
