March despite KR

N obel Peace Prize nominee the Venerable Preah Maha Ghosa-nanda said he would go

ahead with his proposed Dhamayietra peace walk on Pailin even if the Khmer Rouge

deny him permission to enter the stronghold.

Ghosananda said "Even if

they [KR] refuse [to let us enter Pailin] we will go near there. We will

distribute Buddhist scriptures and tell them to stop fighting and to start

living in peace together."

The peace march is planned for April 24 to May

24 and sets out from Battambang province. Marchers will carry young trees to

reforest KR areas.
