Meeting with Burmese parliamentarians

This week, I met with a delegation of three Burmese members of parliament, newly elected to represent Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy Party. The photo shows me chatting with MP Phyo Zeya Thaw, who was also a hip-hop artist (in fact, that's what got him into trouble with the regime). I asked Mr Thaw whether the regime had jailed him for his activism. His reply: "Only for 3 years and 3 months." It was a humbling conversation.
