IN FREEDOM'S CAUSE
edicated to the people of Burma.
A couple of brief notes: the man making silent appeal in front of the US mission in Rangoon (just past the 1 minute mark, or -7:40) is in the back of the truck that drives away; the highlight at 5:48 (or -2:55) shows Kenji Nagai photographing the demonstration near Sule Pagoda just before his death.
Afterthought: I'd meant to mention that the clips are arranged in chronological order, to the best of my ability. The final scene of people walking and clapping was recorded on September 29 -- a day the world media was assuring us that the protests had been totally crushed, and there were no more demonstrations taking place.
