Despite a landslide victory for the National League for Democracy (NLD) led by Aung San Suu Kyi in 1990 the military junta of Myanmar (Burma) has maintained a stranglehold over government, suspending the constitution, persecuting ethnic minorities, imprisoning and torturing peaceful protesters and worse. Come and learn how the people of Myanmar are struggling for change in one of the most repressive regimes in the world, and how you too can help them.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
