communication system between present student demonstrators and 
experienced 1988 students and the citizens.

There are some hit and run demonstrations in Madalay by the
students and the Buddhist monks.

It is heard that more than 200 lawyers in Burma around the
country have been banned for their license by the Slorc military
regime since 1989.

deported  from Rangoon to Bangkok by the Slorc military
intelligence. One is from Norway and another from Holland. The
rest of four are still unknown.
