18 students who were deported from Burma last week are denouncing the military government. The students were arrested for passing out pro-democracy literature to the Burmese people. Specifically, the students passed out cards telling people to remember the ten-year anniversary of an uprising against the military regime. The students were tried, convicted, and sentenced to five years hard labor. They were immediately deported after receiving the sentence. Many have now arrived back in their native countries.
