Earlier today Aung San Suu Kyi was taken from her closely guarded home and driven to a state guesthouse in Rangoon. It’s believed she met a government minister who was recently appointed as a liaison between Burma’s democracy icon and the country’s military rulers. Is this the first sign of breakthough talks?
Pro-democracy advocates had hoped that last month’s protests would galvanize world opinion and create enough outside pressure to force the junta’s leaders to the bargaining table. One man I spoke to yesterday told me that: “People in Burma are living with fear but are very angry. The country is a timebomb and if the international community can’t intervene there will be more uprisings which will be brutally cutdown”. Is he right? We’d like to hear from you?
