Statement by Joint Action Committee for Democracy in Burma (Japan)
 on Recent Detention of  8 NLD Members by SLORC
Dated: Nov.5, 1997
It is obvious that even the NLD Congress held on 27-28 September and atte=
nded by over 700 delegates ended peacefully.  Moreover, Daw Aung San Suu =
Kyi=92s  trip to Thaketa and the NLD Youth Wing meeting held there also e=
nded without any incident. We warmly welcome such kinds of positive signs=
 shown by the authorities concerned. We will never hesitate to appreciate=
 every act which will lead to the meaningful dialogue and genuine nationa=
l reconciliation.

However, the authorities unnecessarily barricaded and blocked the NLD You=
th Wing meeting held in Mayangone township on 28 October and created a sc=
uffle by forcibly taking away many supporters by trucks. And the followin=
g eight NLD members were arrested on the nights of 28-29 October  and the=
ir  whereabouts are still unknown.
