Buffalo, New York, May 8, 2010
Mon Community of Buffalo, NY (MRC-Buffalo) held 253rd Hongsawatoi Fallen Day/Holocaust Memorial Day of Mon People on May 8, 2010 in order to commemorate thousands of Mons including Buddhist monks, women and children who were massacred by Burman leader U Aung Zeya in 1757. Like U Aung Zaya, current Burmese is still persecuting Mon people. Now the the regime is preparing another war against the Mon. In protesting the regime’s war against the Mon, Mon Community of Buffalo was holding a poster read as “ BURMESE REGIME WANTS WAR; MON WANTS PEACE; WAR MUST STOP! HELP MON REFUGEES in the ceremony.
