>> SUPPORT: Freedom Of Expression
>>Support for the democracy movement in Burma and freedom of
>>expression are quite different issues. One can be a supporter
>>for the democracy movement while criticizing the particular groups.
>>On 19August, 1997, we heard a program from Radio Free Asia
>>(Burmese Service)about the execution in ABSDF. We were quite amazed
>>the courage of the radio station and we were very glad that it did.
>>Before then, we thought there was no one (except Amnesty International
>>and some human rights groups) who pointed out any weakness of the
>>oppositions on the border. Many students in Bangkok, who left the
>>for frustration of what had happened, expressed their concern that
>>someone should have done it before for a departure to a good change.
>>ABSDF students who are now taking shelter in
>>the various refugee camps were also glad about it and hoped
>>that it could make the leaders think for a change.
>>However, the responses from the leaders, as far as we heard in
>>Bangkok were quite astounding. They were angry for that program.
>>a leader said they listened RFA because of its support for democracy
>>now he said he would not listen it any more because he thought RFA was
>>not supporting democracy. Some leaders said it was
>>not the time to do it. we have been curious how will they respond
>>to the radio station since then.
>>If it is not the right time, when will it be the right time? We
>>want them to think and compare that if SLORC says that it is not the
>>right time for criticism, how can we change the society and how can
>>we educate the people about what is happening and how can we let
>>learn from the events? We all are hesitant to admit our disorienting
>>dilemmas. It doesn't. (A woman whom we know, Mi Mi Khaing who was
>>NLD accused of being a spy and tortured and interrogated by Dr. Naing
>>Aung led ABSDF. She was released lately). We wish Radio Free Asia
>>interviewed her about her experience in ABSDF interrogation centre.
>>Win Aung is also free and is living in Bangkok.He can also tell his
>>experience in the interrogation centre).
>>It is quite irrational to say that someone is not supporting
>>democracy movements for pointing out the weakness. When we say like
>>this, we should notice that we are behaving like BSPP or SLORC and we
>>are copying their BAD EVIL BEHAVIOURS instead of removing them from
>>daily activities. The events can devastate ourselves and for
>>such reasons, many students feel insecure to make a
>>change within ourselves. Therefore many students have abandoned the
>>border struggle. We should be facing the reality and we should not
>>afraid of learning from the mistakes that we made.
>>We hope that we should make every efforts to stop such awful events
>>and we should analyse ourselves for a better changes. Internal
>>are necessary among us and we will never be able to
>>establish a peaceful and democratic country if we don't remove
>>those habits ourselves. We hope that Radio Free Asia will stand
>>firm from its right direction.
