A ceremony to mark the 9th anniversary of the Saffron Revolution was at the Dhamma Thala Hall in Mandalay Region on Monday.
The Saffron Revolution was a series of protests against the Myanmar government in August, September and October in 2007. Between 13 and 31 people are thought to have been killed during the protests, and hundreds more were arrested.
Attendees at the Mandalay ceremony recited prayers on behalf of the people killed during the demonstration at the ceremony. The monks who organised the event urged the government to work for the welfare of the public.
