Burmese Army soldiers bludgeoning Buddhist monks to death by beating their skulls to pulp


From an eyewitness in Rangoon, Burma:


"They systematically ordered all the monks to line up and banged and crushed each one's head against the brick wall of the monastery. One by one, the peaceful, non resisting monks, fell to the ground, screaming in pain. Then, they tore off the red robes and threw them all in the military trucks (like rice bags) and took the bodies away.

The head monk of the monastery, was tied up in the middle of the monastery, tortured, bludgeoned, and later died the same day, today. Tens of thousands of people gathered outside the monastery, warded off by troops with bayoneted rifles, unable to help their helpless monks being slaughtered inside the monastery. Their every try to forge ahead was met with the bayonets.

When all is done, only 10 out of 200 remained alive, hiding in the monastery. Blood stained everywhere on the walls and floors of the monastery."

Anti-Buddha anti-religion Godless Communist Chinese-supported brutal military "government" in Burma is continuing the barbaric massacres of Buddhist monks.

Burma is under almost complete black-out of telephone internet and all other communications services. Phone service is unreliable and intermittent, and possibly being tapped by the Burmese military government to identify journalists or others who may be trying to leak information out. An eyewitness account has been reported over a possibly tapped phone line at grave personal risk by somebody's sister in Burma and reported on the Buddhist Peace Fellowship website:

How You Can Support the People of Burma

Update 9/28/07:

A dispatch received from someone with a relative in Yangon (Rangoon), via Richard Reoch of Shambhala:

We just got phone call with our sister living in Yangon about a few hours ago. We saw on BBC world, saying that 200 monks were arrested. The true picture is far worse. For one instance, the monastery at an obscure neighborhood of Yangon, called Ngwe Kyar Yan (on Wei-za-yan-tar Road, Yangon) had been raided early this morning.

A troop of lone-tein (riot police comprised of paid thugs) protected by the military trucks, raided the monastery with 200 studying monks. They systematically ordered all the monks to line up and banged and crushed each one's head against the brick wall of the monastery. One by one, the peaceful, non resisting monks, fell to the ground, screaming in pain. Then, they tore off the red robes and threw them all in the military trucks (like rice bags) and took the bodies away.

The head monk of the monastery, was tied up in the middle of the monastery, tortured , bludgeoned, and later died the same day, today. Tens of thousands of people gathered outside the monastery, warded off by troops with bayoneted rifles, unable to help their helpless monks being slaughtered inside the monastery. Their every try to forge ahead was met with the bayonets.

When all is done, only 10 out of 200 remained alive, hiding in the monastery. Blood stained everywhere on the walls and floors of the monastery.

Please tell your audience of the full extent of the fate of the monks please please !!!!!!!!!!!!
'Arrested' is not enough expression. They have been bludgeoned to death !!!!!!

How you can support the People of Burma:

1) Join or organize a vigil in your town or city. We have posted a calendar of vigils on the BPF website. There are currently events scheduled in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC, and Milan (Italy). We are updating the list regularly, so please keep checking it. Check with your local BPF chapter to see if they are planning a vigil.

If you plan a vigil, we are encouraging people to use these common elements:

* Silent vigil, and hold to principles of nonviolence in support of the monks and nuns. If you do chant, use the Metta Sutta, as this is the chant the monks and nuns of Burma have been praying. Click here for a copy of the Metta Sutta that you can print and distribute to people at your vigil. Please avoid protest chants.

* Wear red or maroon.

* Bring a BPF banner, if you have one.

2) Sign a petition

AAVAZ Online Petition to Support Burma

U.S. Campaign for Burma Petition

The Buddhist Channel

3) Light a candle and place it in your window every night this week, along with this sign in support of the nonviolent protest. And please spread the word.

4) Make a donation to the Foundation for the People of Burma, an affiliated group of BPF that provides humanitarian aid to Burmese people of all ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs.

5) Help get video equipment into Burma. From BPF board member Jesse Maceo Vega-Frey:

In lieu of an actual physical international presence on the ground in Burma, one of the best ways we have to supporting the effort of the Burmese people is to make sure these lines of communication to the outside world stay open and up-to-date.

We are trying to find a way to gather photographic, video and transmission equipment and get it into Burma through contacts in Thailand. We would appreciate your help by sending any extra equipment of this nature that you may have to our office in North Carolina, where they will be compiled and sent as quickly as possible to the appropriate people. This can be old, used and even out-dated equipment--as long as it works and you are willing to part ways with it.

If you do not have equipment of this nature but would like to help you can also send donations to help pay for additional equipment and shipping charges. Please make checks payable to stone circles with “Burma video equipment” in the memo line.

Please send all resources to:

The Stone House
