Original report by Aye Nai, DVB

'We must be responsible for our own fate, while avoiding all violence', the All Burma Monks Alliance (ABMA) urged the people of Burma. In their announcement, issued today, the monks are also urged to continue with the boycott and also to be active and vigilant.

U Okkatta, the spokesperson of the Alliance, also beseeched everyone to join in the activities led by the ABMA in order to end the country's humanitarian sufferings.

'Please do not feel distressed. You must control your anger which can lead the tendency towards violence but let us concentrate on building our own future, in solidarity. With our joint forces of the public and monks together, we can resolve all our problems and troubles. We vow to continue with the boycott until every monk (and political prisoner) is released. Please try not to hate anyone and believe in love and affection, which is the only true winner.'
