Remembering the Saffron Revolution

2 years ago, the monks of Burma led half a million people in peaceful protests around the country, proclaiming to the military regime that peace and freedom must be finally restored to the people.

The generals’ response to the non-violent calls was extremely brutal; hundreds were killed, thousands imprisoned, many monasteries raided, and many people are still missing.

U Gawsita was one of the leaders of the Saffron Revolution. In this 2-part video, he spoke about what happened.
