Candle light rallies in support of Myanmarese

Sushanta Talukdar

Guwahati: City residents lit candles near the Dihgalipukuhuri lake here on Saturday night to express solidarity with the people of Myanmar in their struggle for democracy.

The event was organised by the North East People’s Initiative for Peace, Justice and Demilitarisation (NEPI) as part of the ‘Global Day of Action for Free Burma,’ a world-wide effort by citizens to put pressure on their governments to act in unison against the “repressive junta.”

People from all walks of life joined the organisers and expressed their support for restoration of democracy in Myanmar. NEPI will continue to raise the issue over the next few weeks. Many public events are being planned by members of media and academic fraternity.
