Peace March in New York Tomorrow, 9/26

Dear New Yorkers for Burma,

Tomorrow, Friday, September 26th, join some of the monks who took to the streets in last year's peaceful uprising to mark the Saffron Revolution's first anniversary. The event will take place in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, 47th st. & 1st Ave.

12:00 noon, Interfaith Gathering with spiritual leaders, testimony of Burmese monks who took part in the Saffron Revolution, video from the Saffron Revolution, and prayers
1:00pm, Peace Walk to UN & return to Plaza
2:00-4:00pm, Meditation & prayers

This event is being organized by the International Burmese Monks Organization. For more information call 718-426-3959 or visit

Last September, 100,000 monks took to the streets. When the military cracked down, scores were killed, thousands were imprisoned and many monks remain unaccounted for or in hiding. We believe that the best way to honor the monks is to continue the struggle that they were marching for. Come, show your support!

Hope that you can make it.
