Largest Burmese protest march in 20 years
Unsure about what to do, the security forces appear to be standing back for the moment and the next act in the drama is impossible to predict, says BBC’s correspondent Jonathan Head. The Alliance of All Burmese Buddhist Monks, which is leading the demonstrations, has urged the Burmese people to hold prayer vigils in their doorways on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Whatever your creed, I suggest that you take a moment to pray for – or at least send a friendly thought to – the Burmese people these days. They surely need all the support they can get, be it from man or from God(s).
