Demo to support Burmese protests
Buddhists in Leicester are to hold a silent vigil to show solidarity with pro-democracy protesters in Burma.

Organisers Amida Trust said the peaceful event was being held at the clock tower on Sunday afternoon.

A spokeswoman for the group said she had been sent an e-mail telling of human rights abuses from inside Burma.

She said: "We fully support what the Burmese monks and civilians are doing because they are doing it in a very peaceful way."
