Mapping Protests in Burma

ALTSEAN-Burma (Alternative ASEAN Network on Burma), a network of organisations and individuals based in ASEAN member states working to support the movement for human rights and democracy in Burma, developed a map of the economic protests using Google Maps. The map highlighted the location of protests inside Burma, the date in which they took place, the number of demonstrators and where arrests have been made. Some of the landmarks have also links to video clips of the protests. This tool proved to be a good way to indicate 'hot areas' to activists willing to participate in the protests. http://www.altsean.org/Photogalleries/ProtestsMap.php
