The Wall Street Journal reports today that the political opposition took to the streets to protest the military regime near democratic leader, Aung San Suu Kyi’s house. Suu Kyi’s house arrest was to expire this week but the junta extended it to as long as another year. An exiled spokesperson for Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy, said that about 120 party members marched towards Suu Kyi’s house that day.

“This is the time to challenge the regime,” he said. He also said they were planning more protests.
