After a sixth straight day of protest by Burmese monks against the military junta, there are no signs of a loss of momentum. The news breaking today is that the protestors have been allowed to march past Aung San Suu Kyi’s home, where they were greeted by Suu Kyi herself. With the regime clearly nervous about confronting the monks, confidence is growing as people are joining the monks in their protest. A glimmer of hope perhaps, but I fear there may be a lot of bloodshed before this is over.
