Burma and Libya Comparisons

With the Jasmine revolution in the Arab world, Jeanne Marie Hallacy, journalist and film director who has studied Burma for nearly 2 decades, compares the recent situation in Libya to Burma’s struggle for democracy. Libya’s President, Muammar Gaddafi resembles General Than Shwe of Burma, and both leaders are similar in that they isolate themselves and surround their bubbles with wealth from their rich natural resourceful countries.

Jeanne’s new film is called, Yay Zan Lan ( Into the Current). For more information, visit the website: www.intothecurrent.org
