So far the military regime also known as State Law and Order 
Restoration Council has not fulfilled its promise of handing over the 
state power to the winning party of the general elections held on 27th 
May 1990.
Moreover, the regime has been continuously using oppressive methods 
against elected MPs and supporters of the National League for 
Democracy party (NLD) which won and overwhelming majority in 
this general elections.
According to the latest report from inside Burma, total figures of the 
arrest of MPs and supporters reached to 290.

concerned to this arbitrary actions of the military regime and 
therefore, to denouncing this we are going to stage a demonstration
