Myanmar Crackdown Continues

The military junta in Myanmar continues to crack down on political dissidents. On Thursday, five Buddhist monks were sentenced to six and a half years each in prison for staging protests against the regime. Earlier this week, several pro-democracy activists were sent to jail for up to 65 years. The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon recently urged the Myanmar regime to release all political prisoners.

On Thursday, six monks were jailed for their participation in pro-democracy protests last year
