If you have been listening or watching the news lately, you may have heard of the pro democracy demonstration in Burma that was brutally silenced, just weeks ago. This demonstration intensified and resulted brutal murder of Buddhist monks and arrest of many others. The internet and many other media outlets were shut down by the Burmese government during this period. Since then, information of what transpired is to some degree unknown, but hopefully not forgotten.
DCIC is very pleased to have two high profile leaders of the 'Democracy Movement in Burma' gracing our event. They will be presenting an up-to-date insiders talk on the ongoing struggle with the Burmese authorities.
