One cannot but feel privileged and awed to meet three of Burma's “88
Generation” student uprising leaders: Min Ko Naing who has spent most of
the years since 1988 uprising jailed by the Burmese military dictatorship
for his opposition activities; Ko Jimmy, who spent 20 years as a political
prisoner and who was recently thrown back into what he wryly describes as
“our second home” for protesting against fuel price hikes; and Ko Ko Gyi
who spent 17 years in prison for opposing the military regime.
