The International Day of Peace was celebrated across Burma on Saturday.
In Rangoon hundreds of people marched from City Hall to the People’s Park chanting peace slogans and calling for the end of civil war in Burma.
Events went on throughout the day with games, readings, traditional dance and music centering on peace and national reconciliation.
Unlike last year the peace rally was approved by the authorities and over 50 civil society groups were represented at the march.
