September, 29th 2008
On September 27, Singapore time, Burmese activists staying in Singapore marked one year anniversary of Saffron Revolution at Tha Di Burmese Buddhist Monastery by donating swan (meal), robes and fund to the residing and guest monks. It was attended with 25 Burmese where the number of interested persons greatly reduced comparing with one year ago.
At night, they offered free cold drinks to the monastery-goers at Burmese Buddhist Temple, a land mark and gathering place for Burmese Buddhists in Singapore. Later they offered red roses and candle lights at the alter and shrine areas of the monastery.
Singapore is regarded as one of the ally to Burmese military junta and the government had recently refused visa extension to Burmese activists working legally in Singapore. Although Singapore authority were showing their discontent with Burmese people who would like to raise awareness of Burmese struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma, the activists and their families were still organizing more event to step up the pressure on the junta.
