Bloody Tuesday in Burma

Students and monks brutally beaten down today in Burma

Students in Burma have been protesting a new education law that they say limits academic freedom in their country. Today the students were brutally beaten down by police along with monks and journalists. Police detained more than 100 people while dispersing demonstrators who had been protesting for more than a week.

More than 100 students and monks beaten and detained today in Burma
 The Burmese regime needs to drop all charges against the arrested students, and unconditionally free any students still in detention. There also needs to be an investigation that holds accountable those responsible for the violence today and institutionalize nationwide measures to prevent recurrence of similar incidents.
