“Let's unite for Democratic Federal Union of Burma”
4th January, 2009 will mark the 61st anniversary of Independence Day for Burma. Since the fall of Mandalay Kingdom, People of Burma have never given up their fight to regain their independence. Thousands of people have sacrificed their lives. Why? They had only one hope to have a chance for the future generations to enjoy the fruits of independence.
However, People of Burma have not had this chance until now. They have been under the most oppressive and brutal regime in the world. Despite of their liberation from foreign colonization, they have not yet liberated from the dictatorial oppression of their own people. Without genuine liberation, no one can enjoy the fruits of independence. To have a genuine liberation, Burma must be established as a federal union that will guarantee democratic rights to all citizens and political equality for all ethnic nationalities.
Therefore, we call upon the People of Burma and overseas Burmese people around the world to the global action for the second struggle for national independence to establish a Democratic Federal Union of Burma. Demonstrations and a number of activities will take place in different countries. We would like to encourage everyone to join with us to show solidarity and unity.
