EXACTLY a year ago, the airwaves and the national newspapers of Britain were awash with news from Burma as monks took to the streets.
Since then the United Nations Secretary General's Special Advisor has visited the country four times and the European Union and the ASEAN nations have called for change. Yet if anything the situation has got worse.
Nearly 1,000 people remain in detention for their part in those protests, taking the number of political prisoners in Burma to 2,100.
[....] as a nation we should remember the sacrifices of all of the protestors in Burma.
