The International Day of Peace in the Mekong

On the International Day of Peace, in Yangon, Myanmar, 26 young adults from Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, and China joined hundreds of locals to walk for peace.

Unlike previous years, local authorities approved civil society plans to hold the peace walk, and some high level government officials also joined. It was but another sign of Myanmar’s rapid, though fragile, transition to democracy.
