As always, Alex Shrugged's opinions are his own. Other people's work are their own. I include them here for the sake of completeness and to provide a second method of access to the material for the TSP history segment.

A Presidency of a Thousand DaysContributed by Alex Shrugged

On Fire for Freedom of FaithContributed by Southpaw Ben
Between May and November, Buddhists in South Vietnam protested their oppression by the minority Catholic government, headed by President Ngô Đình Diệm. On May 8th, 9 unarmed civilians were shot by police and army security forces while protesting the ban of the display of Buddhist flags during the celebration of the birthday Gautama Buddha. On June 11th, the Buddhist monk Thích Quảng Đức, with the help of 2 fellow monks, light himself on fire and burnt to death in front of the Cambodian embassy in Saigon. This was in response to the oppression of the Buddhist faith by the Catholic government. The oppression of the Buddhist faith ended with the coup and assassination of President Diệm on November 2nd.
