Video: The new face of Burma's opposition
Date created : Latest update :

Pro-democracy groups are increasingly divided, and with veteran opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi barred from running as a candidate, a student movement has been taking to the streets to try to change the system. The protests have been met with a heavy-handed response by police, recalling a not-so-distant past.
Our team in the region went to meet some of the new faces of Burma’s opposition.
