Kyaw's story: 30 years of fighting for freedom in Myanmar | Amnesty Australia



By now, you are probably aware of the escalating violence unfolding in Myanmar, on the back of a military coup in February. At least 500 people have been killed. But military rule and control is not new to the area. Kyaw has been a part of the pro-democracy movement in Myanmar (Burma) since the pro-democracy uprising in 1988 and has dedicated his life to the country’s fight for freedom. After a military crackdown, Kyaw was forced to flee Myanmar decades ago, before building a life here in Australia. Since the most recent military coup, he has not heard from his father who still lives there. This is Kyaw’s story.
