Here’s real courage at Myitkyina, Myanmar.A nun pleads with police not to harm protesters in Myitkyina, amid a crackdown on demonstrations against the military coup.
It’s people like this Nun who is really on the front line who needs our praise and our supportive outrage. It’s interesting to note the response of the Police. This is an outstanding example of putting the correct person in the front line to challenge those in positions of power.
