  1. The military regime cannot stop people's desire. The regime thinks they can shut up voice of people by using force. Now the regime is using a new tactic to take measure on the protesters. Create a con- frontation between USDA members pro-government people forces) and people who take to streets.
    If this plan is foiled the regime will use security forces and quell the procession. Their final resolution will be shooting demonstrators on sight. On one hand this regime is trying to cheat the world by saying that they are preparing to transform the country into a democratic state and on the other hand they are stopping people who are practising democracy. National Convention sponsored by the regime takes 14 years to draw a constitution that is not recommended by majority people and the opposition party NLD. The people's representatives who attended the convention are none other than cronies of the regime. Handpicked by the regime, these representatives or MP members are "yes" men and they had to submit their opinions which were dictated by the regime. People had expressed their desire in 1988 nationwide uprising and many had already given their lives in the struggle for peace and democracy. And now once again students, people and monks join hands in hands take to streets and demanding their long lost human rights and democracy.
    I hope this may be the last time for the people's struggle. Soon there will be a light of democracy again on Burma and the darkness of military dictatorial rule will disappear once and for all.

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)

My photo
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.
