20.

Twenty years ago, millions of Burmese took to the streets to defy the dictatorial government led by Gen Ne Win. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Burma's democracy uprising.
The uprising is known as the four 8s, or 8.8.88, because student activists called for a nationwide uprising on August 8, 1988.
The number 8 brought bloodshed, tears and hope for democratic change in Burma. The irony now is that the Beijing's Olympics will begin on August 8, 2008.
There have been calls for a boycott against the Beijing Olympics ever since the bloody crackdown in September. But why target China?
The connection is simply that many people feel that Burma is China's client state. China is a main source of diplomatic, military and economic support that has prolonged the repressive rule in Burma.
