In this picture taken on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, student leaders of a successive uprising, from left, Zaw Zaw Min, Hla Shwe, and Ragu Ne Myint walk outside the main gate of the University of Yangon, where President Barack Obama is scheduled to deliver a speech on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, in Yangon, Myanmar. Since colonial times, the fight for change in Myanmar has begun on this leafy campus. It was a center of the struggle for independence against Britain and served as a launching point for pro-democracy protests in 1962, 1974, 1988 and 1996. For many, the school has today become a symbol of the country’s ruined education system and a monument to a half century of misrule. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
