Keywords: Burma, Youth Movements
Imagine a country where the young generation has finally arisen. In Burma, after the 2007 protests against the regime, the new generation has found the spark and inspiration to define its identity. Several groups are now using art, communication, music and political activism to claim their right for free speech and political change. No surprise that Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, finally free to walk outside the walls of her own house, has immediately started a dialogue with these young movements, such as Generation Wave, whose members are graffiti writers and hip hop-politically-engaged artists. The new generations might be, on the long run, a crucial gamechanger in the country and an effective raise-awareness weapon against the violence of the military dictatorship.
