Unrest in Myanmar

One of our neighbouring nations Myanmar is presently moving through a bad time of violence and protests. Myanmar also has an old history of protests and violence against its army rulers. From many years, people of Myanmar are demanding freedom from army rulers and a democratic government. However, so far ruling junta in Myanmar is reluctant to leave the power and give way for the democracy. We all are already aware about Aung San Suu Kyi, who has won noble prize for fighting for the cause of democracy in Myanmar. This 62 year old women was mostly put under house arrest by the ruling junta for not allowing her to meet the public. This time, peace loving monks of Myanmar are taking this fight forward. Three day back millions of peace loving monks and college students came to the street for showing their protest against the ruling junta. They want better living conditions; military general to step down and end of military rule in Myanmar. After these protests, now there are news of wide spread crack down on the demonstrations in Myanmar by the police and armed forced. Myanmar has mostly remained closed from the rest of the world, as its ruling junta feel threaten by opening its doors to the world. Many experts in this matter believe that these protests could go as wild like the pro-democracy protests of the 1988 in which more than 3000 people died. There is news of arrest of hundred of monks and ruling junta trying to cut the communication channels so that news about the violence should spread. There is also news of number of causalities but there is no confirmation due to control on the information flow. However, in the world of latest technology, there are number of news and videos which are coming out of Myanmar despite control on the flow of information.
