All Burma Monks' Alliance
All Burma Monks' Alliance (abbreviated ABMA) is a coalition of monks representing the All Burma Young Monks' Union, the Federation of all Burma Monks' Union, the Rangoon Young Monks' Union and the Sangha Duta Council of Burma. It was formed during the Saffron Revolution, founded on 9 September 2007 after monk protests in Sittwe and Pakokku. During its formation, ABMA made several key demands to the ruling State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), including a formal apology to the Sangha, a reduction on fuel and commodity prices, release of political prisoners, and dialogue with the pro-democracy leaders for national reconciliation.
