1996: Inside Burma, land of fear

21 years ago in 1996, John Pilger made this documentary about Myanmar. Back then the country was ruled by corrupt generals who exploited workers, peasants and poor. Today Myanmar is ruled by people who claimed to stand in opposition to the military junta. After 18 months in power the National League for Democracy has not dared to move against the former members of the criminal: State Peace and Development Council. The NLD is not only protecting the generals, but also is making deals with the capitalist establishment of the world. The same capitalists who kept the old junta in power for 24 years. Like the ANC in South Africa, the NLD in Myanmar turned out to be a traitor to the ideas of socialism and democracy!
