Does Democracy Still Stand A Chance In Myanmar?

Myanmar's death toll continues to rise as the military cracks down hard on protests across the country. More than 60 protesters have reportedly been killed and 2,000 detained since the February 1st coup, which saw the military seize power from the fledgeling democratic government. With unrest showing no signs of abating, is it still possible for there to be a peaceful resolution in Myanmar? We speak to Hunter Marston, Researcher at the Australian National University, to find out.
