National Convention has been created by the military junta as one of its tactics to stay in power and stalling time for handing over power to the winning party NLD in the nationwide elections held in 1992. With the Road Map and National Convention I see no solution for Burma's problem. Now that the regime is saying to hold another referendum meaning that it won't recognize the result of the last elections. If the regime manage to hold another election, it is no doubt that the new election by the junta will not be realized in favor of the people. As the leopard will never change its spots, the junta will again plays trick to the people and the world. Once a thief is always a thief. This saying is always true for the military butchers.

First, through a concerted, non-violent protest by all citizens of the country at home and international fora. If it is responded by repression and harsher measures, then, through an armed revolution. Such moves are sure to be supported by all democratic and peace loving countries of the world. (modest)

An exiled journalist from Burma, I have taken refuge in the United States with my family thanks to CPJ in New York, UNHCR (Cambodia) and the States Department. I was detained for one and a half year in 1969 for burning effigy of the late dictator Ne Win in the Rangoon University campus during SEA Games Strike. I was also actively participated in 8888 nationwide uprising by taking charge in publishing The Guardian Daily as independent newspaper for 22 days before I resigned from the newspaper as Assistant Editor in September,1988. Fortunately, I was escaped from arresting by the military regime. In 1990, I left for Bangkok where I had an assignment to translate the "Outrage: Burma's Struggle for Democracy". The book was originally written by Bertil Lintner, a Swedish journalist. I fled my country in December 2005 after my life was threatened by the military intelligence service for involving in political movements and had given assistance to foreign journalists who came to Burma. I am still active with the movement for restoring democracy in Burma.
