Description

At Rangoon University on July 7, 1962, the military violently cracked down on students protesting against the government of General Ne Win.  Dr. Eddie Win was a freshman on campus and witnessed students shot at point-blank range.  He also took part in the 8888 Movement and is an active supporter of democracy and federalism in Burma.

Dr. Win’s talk will cover a wide range of topics about Burma's military juntas, and will include the opportunity for questions and discussion.
