Burma's reformers: What now for the '88 Generation?


In 1988 demands for an end to the military dictatorship in Burma spilled out from the university campuses onto the streets, lead by a group known as the '88 Generation Students Group.

The movement was brutally suppressed, and those who were caught were sentenced to decades in prison.

But in January the new semi-civilian government released Min Ko Naing, Htay Kywe and Ko Ko Gyi - three of the most charismatic leaders of the '88 Generation.
