Myanmar youth distanced politically

Myanmar's youth are growing up without having a say in how their country is run.

    Being young in Myanmar, you can have a good time, just don't step out of line.

    This is a country that has known rule only by the military.

    A whole generation is growing up there without real political change, not knowing what it's like to have a say in how their country is run.

    Many of Myanmar's older generation support the fight.

    Because of reporting restrictions we cannot name our special correspondent who sent this report from Myanmar.
