President Thein Sein Should Reveal Role in ’88 Massacre

MEDIA RELEASE FROM BURMA CAMPAIGN UK

Reference to SSA leader’s call for Unity-

Like me, I am sure Sao Yawd Serk and those who constantly calling for Tai/Shan Unity are frustrated and fed up with having to ask, “when are some Tai/Shan going to see and realise that unity to fight for a common goal, is more important and essential for the survival of all peoples of the Shan State, than one's own political ideas? It is sad that some of our Tai/Shan who are supposed to be leaders and elite of society are not making much effort to make Unity possible. Under the dictatorial regime our peoples have suffered, bullied and subjected to all kinds of human rights violations yet some have failed to read the mind-set and ideology of the Burmese dictatorial regime, and their aim to Burmanise all ethnic nationalities, and to obliterate their country, ethnicity, language, culture, history and religion once and for all. When are all peoples of the Shan State going to realise that this is a very serious matter and Unity to speak with one voice is a “must” for the survival and common good of all concerned.
