Myanmar Reduces Penalties In Public Protest Law - Abc News

Under changes to the "Peaceful Assembly Law" the maximum penalty for those who cause unrest was halved to one year in prison, while the penalty for those who fail to seek permission for protesting was halved to six months. The amended version still requires people to seek permission for public protests but it eliminated a clause from the original law saying that "authorities can reject the permission," implying that protests will be allowed as long as they are peaceful.
