Burma abolishes “precensorship”

NPR’s Annalisa Quinn reports that the people of Burma (or “Myanmar”) are “celebrat[ing]” as the country “begins to relax its censorship laws.”  The UK Guardian elaborates on the changes: “Under the new rules, journalists will no longer have to submit their work to state censors before publication as they have for the past 50 years.” The celebration includes Burma’s “first-ever international literary festival.” (The latter two links are also in the NPR story.)
