In a country where most men still wear traditional dress, dressing punk style is an act of rebellion.


Burma is rapidly changing and old censorship laws have been relaxed, but no one is sure where the new boundaries are and what might land you in prison. 


Kyaw Kyaw, who founded Rebel Riot punk group in 2007, says he is not impressed by the country's recent transfer of power to a civil government after almost five decades of military 

rule.


The new government, he says, is mostly made up of members of the former ruling junta. 


“Firstly democracy is equal to capitalism. Also the change is just a change in words not a real change,” he says, adding that the government has done little to tackle the rising disparity of wealth in Burma.


It’s an issue that is close to Kyaw Kyaw and his fellow punks.
