Burma’s Defiance: The Non Violent Revolution For Change

New Work Part 1

Burma’s non-violent revolution for change, as Aung San Suu Kyi called for just days after her release from house arrest, continues inside Burma and in exile as former student leaders, political prisoners, human rights defenders and activists continue the struggle for democracy against the tirade of brutality and oppression dealt by Burma’s ruling regime.

This ongoing long term project will document those leading the non-violent revolution for change in Burma both inside the country and in exile with a mixture of portraits and documentary. Currently the majority of work from inside Burma is embargoed to protect the security of those involved with only some able to be shown.

Bo Kyi, Joint Secretary of the AAPP, was jailed for 7 years due to his political activities.

Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma have chosen the route of non-violence in order to bring about change in Burma. Many would argue that it is a fight that cannot be won against a regime that uses weapons at will, but here in this article, Mark Kurlansky, best selling author of ‘Nonviolence: the History of a Dangerous Idea’ tells how it will eventually prevail in Burma.
