Background:

Each year, the people from Burma around the world commemorate March 13 as the Burma Human Rights Day to make the death of the engineering student Ko Phone Maw as he was murdered by the Burma's military in his school campus. The killing set off the historic 1988 nation-wide pro-democracy uprising in Burma after 26 years of oppression. However, the regime brutally cracked down the peaceful protests and continued hold on to power for decades.

After five decades of oppression and military rules, there have been some signs of change towards reforms. Come share the expert opinions on if real change has begun or if it is just an illusion. However there are more than 300 political prisoners still remain in Burma's prisons. Let's call for the release of all reaming political prisoners Burma.
