    In another sign of change in Myanmar, a group of villagers in the country's south are speaking out against a massive industrial estate that is being built on their land.

    The authorities have told them to vacate their land, but they refuse to do so. Now, they are speaking out against the government's plans, in a way that would have been unthinkable for years, for fear of the consequences.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from the coastal village of Dawei, Myanmar.
