Voting in the Military As all eyes are on Burma's elections and the international media struggle to gain access, hidden cameras in this report offer a ground level look inside the junta.

Cho Cho Nyein has spent seven years in prison for her political work, yet she is confident: "I do believe one can use this election to change the system".
