Today on Your Call: What would real reform look like in Burma?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the state of the opposition movement inside Burma, where elections are taking place on April 1. Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi recently gave her first campaign speech, saying the reform process has yet to deliver democratic gains. It's been almost five years since the massive uprising in Burma. What do you want to know about the struggle for democracy there? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Bo Kyi, former political prisoner and international human rights activist from Burma

Jeanne Hallacy, human rights journalist and director of 'Into the Current' 

Cheery Zahau, Chin activist from Burma who now lives in Thailand, founder of Women's League of Chinland
