As protests in Burma have been met by a brutal crackdown, a small group of Southeast Asians near Akron have been watching and praying. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll talk with some local Burmese and a member of the exiled government. We'll try to understand exactly what's happening in the country now called Myanmar and how the current crackdown might end. We'll also talk about what we can do in response from halfway around the world. Join the conversation Wednesday at nine.


Goran Debelnogich, Director of resettlement at the International Institute of Akron
Bo Hla Tint, Representative of the National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma (NCGUB), government in exile.
Sunday Moo, Burmese resident of Akron
Nandathara Mehm, Burmese monk, and Akron Resident
