Pro-democracy protest in Burma

About two dozen people held a rare protest in Myanmar's largest city Tuesday (12 Feb) to demand that the military junta listen to U.N. calls for the restoration of democracy.


Some two dozen members of Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy, shadowed by plainclothes police, gathered peacefully outside the party's headquarters to complain that the junta's moves toward democracy are insufficient. It was a rare display of public displeasure in the tightly controlled country.
