MYANMAR-INTERNET-YOUTH-RIGHTS

TO GO WITH Myanmar-Internet-youth-rights,FOCUS by Shwe Yin Mar Oo This picture taken on May 31, 2013 shows a woman browsing the internet at an internet cafe in Yangon. Sanctions and economic mismanagement under decades of military rule left Myanmar impoverished and cut off from the world, an isolation deepened by a system of online repression imposed by the paranoid generals. Less than one percent of the country's population have access to the Internet and for those that do, unreliable electricity supplies and painfully slow connection speeds often make websurfing an excruciating experience.
