The end of what seems like an almost scripted story- Myanmar’s democracy continues to be defiant under the stronghold of a long political history of forced military rulership. The battle raging in this Eastern Asian nation is not new but there is a sincere desire for its end as people are protesting for the release of elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The reports of over 50 people being killed by military officers in the protests has sparked outrage as the silencing of democracy continues.

Since independence in 1948, Myanmar has seen relatively little long term peaceful political and civil relations.

This year is likely to be an exit to the dominion of political coups, government polarization of human rights, and sanctioned violence against innocent martyrs.

The country is largely Buddhist; however, the diverse ethnic groups are working together to force the military generalists to relinquish control of the government. Other countries are also now taking up more interest and increasing sanctions following the outrageous killings of protestors.
