Burmese students expelled en masse for protests over education budget
YADANABON University in Mandalay, Burma has expelled 14 of its students over their role in a campus protest for a bigger education budget, the first student rally since Aung San Suu Kyi’s civilian administration took power in 2016. The expulsion followed their brief detainment by the police for organising a four-day rally at Yadanabon University, which drew a crowd of about 100 students including those from nearby Meiktila, Sagaing, Monywa, Kyaukse, Mohnyin and Pathein. “We… were given a letter saying that we were expelled for breaking regulations,” law student Kyaw Thiha Ye Kyan told AFP.
