YANGON: Thousands of activists including ethnic minorities are expected to join emotional activities marking the 25th anniversary of the 8888 pro-democracy uprising in Yangon early next month. 

Intellectuals in exile are demanding the anniversary go beyond ceremonies and also help set directions for the country's development.

The 17-member Convening Committee for the 25th anniversary of the 8888 Pro-democracy Uprising will be holding a three-day forum next month to discuss the state of Myanmar politics and scenarios for the future.
