Fate of the Buddhist monks in Burma


Recommended Posts

I've just received this email from Burma, it tells the REAL story of the buddhist monks in Rangoon........ I don't have the words to express my distress over the situation there, Aly

 

Voici la traduction d'un courriél datant de lundi 1er Octobre 2007 reçu par
> l'intermédiaire d'amis bouddhiste :
>  
> La situation en Birmanie selon l'e-mail ci-dessous :
>  
> Nous venons d'avoir un coup de téléphone de notre soeur qui habite à Yangon,
> il y a quelques heures.
>  
> On a vu qu'ils disaient sur la BBC WORLD que 200 moines avaient été arrêtés.
> La réalité est bien pire !!!!! Par exemple le monastère d'un quartier peu
> connu de Yangon, qui s'appelle Ngwe Kyar Yan ( Rue Wei-za-yan-tar à Yangon)
> a subi une descente de police tôt ce matin.
>  
> Une troupe de 'lone-tein' (la police anti-émeutes constituée de voyous
> payés) protégés par des camions militaires ont fait une descente sur le
> monastère où étudient 200 moines. Ils ont ordonné systématiquement à tous
> les moines de s'aligner, les ont frappés et leur ont écrasé la tête contre
> le mur de briques du monastère. Un par un, les moines pacifiques et sans
> résistance sont tombés par terre en hurlant de douleur. Puis les policiers
> leur ont arraché leurs robes rouges, les ont tous jetés dans les camions
> militaires (comme des sacs de riz) et ont emporté les corps.
>  
> Le moine principal a été attaché au milieu du monastère, torturé, matraqué
> et il est mort plus tard le même jour, aujourd'hui. Des dizaines de milliers
> de gens se sont rassemblés devant le monastère, ont été repoussés par des
> militaires baïonnettes au canon, et ils ont été incapables d'aider leurs
> moines impuissants qui se faisaient massacrer à l'intérieur du monastère.
> Toutes leurs tentatives pour avancer se sont heurtées aux baïonnettes.
>  
> Quand tout fut terminé, il ne restait que 10 moines sur 200 en vie, cachés
> dans le monastère. Du sang tachait tous les murs et les sols du monastère.
>  
> S'il vous plait, racontez à votre public l'étendue réelle du sort des
> moines, s'il vous plait, s'il vous plait !!!!!!
>  
> « Arrêté » n'est pas une expression suffisante. Ils ont été matraqués à
> mort.

Thanks for that Gardian.

I think it's so sad that people on this forum are more interested in "black" working than in the brutal massacre of the most gentle and holy men on this earth. Shame on you.

I'm in contact with some people close to this situation, and am waiting to hear if there is anything we can do to help in any way...difficult to know how we could do anything worthwhile, but I'll post any feedback I get.

I'm (perhaps wrongly) assuming  some of you give a .....!

That is sad. It's the first time I've seen it.

Having spent a fair bit of time in Myanmar/Burma a number of years ago, and having been touched by the friendliness and generosiity of its people, I have been watching developments there with interest. It's hard to believe a lot of the news coming out of there, though (and here I refer to the general media) because I know just how draconian the levels of censorship there actually are.

Thanks for that, Betty, it's heartening to know someone else cares.

We don't rely on the general news channels however, we have contact with these people through a Buddhist organisation based in Germany. We get news but no one seems to be doing anything to help these wonderful priests and their followers.

I feel upset and frustrated,

Aly
