Since the release of political dissident Aung San Suu Kyi, a fresh new breeze is blowing through Burma. Is it finally time for good news? An introduction by Elke Kuijper from The Best Friend, an organisation working to bring about peace in Burma, with Burmese Ko Hla Myint and Ko Set Myo Oo's (National League for Democracy).
Since 2009, Elke Kuiper has been working for The Best Friend, an organisation founded by Burmese monks. She has travelled to the Thai-Burmese border region several times in recent years, among others to visit a refugee camp and launch the Burma Voices project with one of the Burmese monks. Stories told by Burmese refugees are posted on the Burma Voices website. Burma Voices, the book, will be published this year.
