Kyaw Ko Ko
Kyaw Ko Ko is a human rights defender and chairperson of the All Burma Federation of Student Unions (ABFSU). Since November 2014, student organisations including ABFSU have been protesting against the National Education Bill, which student activists claim restricts academic freedom. Enacted by Parliament on 30 September 2014, the National Education Law was intended to reform the country's education system, but the ABFSU claim the government did not seek adequate student input in its drafting. The new restrictions outlaw independent student and teacher unions, and erase ethnic languages, cultures and literatures from university syllabi.
