President Obama speaks at the University of Yangon. "Over the last year and a half, a dramatic transition has begun, as a dictatorship of five decades has loosened its grip," according to the advance text released by the White House. "Instead of being repressed, the right of people to assemble together must now be fully respected. Instead of being stifled, the veil of media censorship must continue to be lifted."
