8888 Uprising
8888 Uprising Stories of Four Survivors

Four people tell of their experiences on the day of the 8888 Uprising, the pro-democracy demonstrations across Rangoon and Burma that were crushed by the Burmese Junta. Although thousands of university students, monks, housewives and children were killed by the military during the uprising, government records account for only 350 of them. Ultimately, the suppression by the military junta on August 8, 1988 prevented the protests from succeeding.
