Photograph caption dated July8, 1984 reads, "Witnesses Against Persecution: Letting their silence speak out against religious persecution in today's Vietnam, saffron-robed Buddhist monks with shaven heads meditated on the sun-drenched steps of downtown City Hall for 12 hours yesterday. In communist Vietnam, "nuns and priests are being arrested for no apparent reason," said Renee Maynard, spokeswoman for the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, and written protests have been unavailing."
