UN Day Burma Freedom March & Rally – 24 October 2007, San Francisco

 According to Dr. Tint Swe, a National League for Democracy (NLD) Member of Parliament in exile in India, the military junta killed over 200 monks and citizens at large and detained over 6,000 people in the latest brutal crackdown to suppress peaceful pro-democracy protests throughout Burma. (The government reports that only 13 people were killed.) Reports filtering out of Burma claim that the military continues its night-time raids, rounding up monks, activists, and anyone else suspected of having anything to do with protesters, protests and rallies, including families of suspected activists and returning Burmese who may have participated in actions overseas!
