Thich Nhat Hahn speaks on the Burma uprising (and also the war in Iraq) in this Time Video

Listen to the interview by Michael Enright (14MB in mp3 format) on the October 7th edition of the CBC radio show The Sunday Edition, with his guests Professor Robert Thurman and Sister Elaine MacInnes.

I believe there is a minor error in that interview, where Professor Thurman asserts that Burmese monks are monks for life. I believe this is not true. My understanding is that monastic vows in Theravada countries are often taken for short periods of time.
