Buddhist Channel on Burma

The Buddhist Channel is closely following the goings-on in Burma. (And Myanmar has the second-most corrupt government in the world, according to Transparency International.)

And the Times lede says it all:

Government security forces in Myanmar cracked down for a second day today on nationwide protests, firing shots and tear gas, and raiding at least two Buddhist monasteries, where they beat and arrested dozens of monks, according to reports from the city of Yangon.

Update on the Banned Books in Prison: they might be un-banned due to popular demand. Or at least, steps are being taken in the proper direction.

Another update: Our friend Vishvapani on the protests as lovingkindness in action.
