"Democracy activists freshly tested the new Myanmar government's avowed tolerance for dissent by gathering peacefully Monday at a central landmark in the country's biggest city in honor of giant protests four years ago. Four truckloads of riot police and two prison vans stood nearby but police did nothing to interfere with almost 60 activists who held a prayer vigil at Sule pagoda in Yangon. However, police harassed or stopped marchers in other parts of the city." (09/26/11)
