Remembering the uprising

Thousands of people across Rangoon spent the week commemorating the 25th anniversary of the 8888 general uprising. Art exhibitions, conventions and moments of silence have been held to honour the hundreds of thousands of people who rose up against Ne Win’s dictatorship in 1988 along with the more than 3,000 people who were killed during a series of military engineered crackdowns that crushed the popular uprising.
