The 8888 Uprising (Burmese: ၈၄လုံး or ရ္ဟစ္‌လေးလုံး; MLCTS: hrac le: lum:) was a national revolution in Burma (Myanmar) demanding democracy in 1988. The uprising began on August 8, 1988, and from this date (8-8-88), it is known as the “8888 Uprising”.

University students began demonstrations in Yangon (Rangoon), which spread throughout the country. The uprising ended on September 18, after a bloody military coup by the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC). Thousands, mostly Buddhist monks and civilians (primarily students) were slaughtered by the Tatmadaw (armed forces).
