Hundreds of people gathered in Yangon on International Peace Day calling for an end to the festering conflict between Kachin ethnic minority rebels and Myanmar's army.
In a colourful rally to mark the International Day of Peace, at least 200 people -- including Kachins, artists and civil society groups -- met in downtown Yangon, many wearing blue T-shirts bearing the slogan "Stop Civil War", or carrying banners and plastic doves.""We need the rule of law to get peace. When we get peace, we can get development... so we ask for rule of law first, then to build peace", said Nay Myo Zin, leader of civil society group the Myanmar Social Development Network".
