Supporters of the Buddhist nationalist 969 Movement watch a sermon on a projector outside an already full monastery by their spiritual leader U Wirathu, in Mandalay. U Wirathu is an abbot in the New Maesoeyin Monastery where he leads about 60 monks and has influence over more than 2,500 residing there. He travels the country giving sermons to religious and laypeople encouraging Buddhists to shun Muslim business and communities. /Felix Features
