Event Type Panel Discussion
Come enjoy a Burmese style dinner, speakers, a short film on Burma and a panel discussion with Burma experts and activists. Burma is going through its most challenging time as reforms are taking place while the 2015 Election is only a year away. Though the country seems to be changing, the people's livelihood is no better and they are as always struggling for their daily survival. There are major concerns with the slow pace of reforms and the peace process, wide-spread land-grabs, continued human rights abuses, cronyism, uncertainty about amending the sham constitution and the ultimate outcome of the 2015 elections. Therefore, now is a crucial time for Burma and her people and come join us to learn about how you can help for the better there. Speakers: Prof. Larry Diamond, Edith Mirante, and Burma democracy activists.
