recent crackdown against the Opposition , a Rangoon-based analyst said on the 

Military authorities reinstalled a barricade manned by armed riot police at the 
approaches to Ms Aung San Suu Kyi's suburban home Saturday in an effort to 
stop a meeting of some 300 National League for Democracy supporters from 
taking place . Access to Ms Suu Kyi 's house has been restricted to even close 
aides but she has been able to leave her compound allowing her to hold party 
meetings elsewhere in Rangoon, the analyst said .
