Title: Burma Guide to Rights and Democracy
Date of publication: 08 August 2005
Description/subject: This site seems to have died at some time between 31 May and 26 June 2013. As an archive it should normally be accessed via www.archive.org (OBL has given the archive.org URL)..... "Welcome to BurmaGuide.Net All of Burma’s peoples deserve to live together in mutual respect under a government that strives to provide the greatest benefits for every citizen. The Burma Guide to Rights and Democracy, or “BurmaGuide.Net”, is your source for information on Burma’s development toward a democratic country where the rights of all peoples are honored under the rule of law. BurmaGuide.Net offers many “resource summaries” in different areas that are crucial for citizens of countries in transition on the often difficult path towards democracy and a modern economy. The BurmaGuide.Net includes many documents that are viewable or downloadable here. Many more can be found in the links to other Internet sites that are provided. Our Burmese version of this site is known as Lanpya.Net. In Burmese, lanpya means “route”, and we hope this information will help Burma’s peoples towards a peaceful and prosperous future."
