Burmese Monks Urged to Boycott State-run Exams

Source: The Irrawaddy

Burmese monks are being urged in an anti-government pamphlet to boycott annual regime-organized examinations to show solidarity with protesting monks who were dispersed by the authorities and pro-junta thugs in the September demonstrations.

In their statement, the Alliance of All Burmese Buddhist Monks called on Buddhist monks to "respect the devotion of the monks who were arrested, disappeared and died in the movement for 'patam nikkujjana kamma'—meaning a boycott of alms from members of the military regime."
