An injured monk's face shows the intensity of the
napalm bomb used by the members of police forces
After crackdown on religious monks with napalm bomb at the protest camps in Letpadaung, the injured monks were first hospitalized at Monywa Hospital and receiving treatment at the hospital. However, as the condition of the monks turned from bad to worst they were again sent to Mandalay Hospital where the treatment was better than the former hospital that has less specialists and few medical facilities.  But the injuries the monks received from the firebomb seemed to be made of chemical poison the treatment were no effective, possibly the physicians themselves cannot figure out  what kind of chemical poison could be.  So locals of Mandalay who were much concern about the sangas they are now requesting the authorities or communities outside in order the seriously injured sangas might received a medical attention outside Burma.

First, through a concerted, non-violent protest by all citizens of the country at home and international fora. If it is responded by repression and harsher measures, then, through an armed revolution. Such moves are sure to be supported by all democratic and peace loving countries of the world. (modest)

My photo
An exiled journalist from Burma, I have taken refuge in the United States with my family thanks to CPJ in New York, UNHCR (Cambodia) and the States Department. I was detained for one and a half year in 1969 for burning effigy of the late dictator Ne Win in the Rangoon University campus during SEA Games Strike. I was also actively participated in 8888 nationwide uprising by taking charge in publishing The Guardian Daily as independent newspaper for 22 days before I resigned from the newspaper as Assistant Editor in September,1988. Fortunately, I was escaped from arresting by the military regime. In 1990, I left for Bangkok where I had an assignment to translate the "Outrage: Burma's Struggle for Democracy". The book was originally written by Bertil Lintner, a Swedish journalist. I fled my country in December 2005 after my life was threatened by the military intelligence service for involving in political movements and had given assistance to foreign journalists who came to Burma. I am still active with the movement for restoring democracy in Burma.
