When: September 26 • Wednesday • 1:30 – 3PM
Where: Central Lions Seniors Association, 11113 – 113 St, Edmonton

Is the crisis in Myanmar (formerly Burma) a religious war between Buddhists and Muslims? We will explore the depth of this unfolding story and the place Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner, has at its centre. How do Buddhist monks known for a peaceful message in the modern West come to play a role in ethnic cleansing?
