While facing death penalty, imprisonment and punishment, Not to lose sight of organizing people support

It was heard that on September 29, 2022, the Military Council Court of Nay Pyi Taw prison sentenced all 5 people, U Soe Win (former Minister of Planning/Finance), U Set Aung (former Deputy Minister of Planning/Finance/Industry) and U Kyaw Win (former Minister of Planning/Finance), who were charged in a joint trial, including State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Australian economist Mr. Sean Turnell, to 3 years imprisonment each.

As of June 2022, there were a total of 19 cases filed by the military council against State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. Of these, 11 cases have been sentenced to 20 years in prison by the military court. 


Now, in the case of Mr. Sean Turnell, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s sentence has been added to 23 years. It is known that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi still has to face 5 corruption cases related to the purchase of a helicopter and 2 corruption cases related to the Daw Khin Kyi Foundation, for a total of 7 cases.

The junta group is desperately trying to eliminate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and NLD political forces from the future of Myanmar, and there is no sign of slowing down so far. 


Since the military coup in 2021, the freedom of civil society has become more stringent. Efforts to register mobile phone usage and impose new taxes are aimed at reducing ordinary civilians’ access to phones and the Internet. In addition, surveillance of Internet users are increased. It is said that sending likes and emojis on social media posts related to the NUG and PDF forces can result in up to 10 years in prison. That is why freedom of speech has been tightened, said the Acting High Commissioner for Human Rights.

While the fighting between the armed revolutionary forces and the military group is fierce, the military group is trying to suppress the unarmed disobedient people and those who are against the military group. 


There is such intensity on the political front, and also, in the internal resistance war, the opposition on both sides is increasing step by step. According to DVB news – on September 29, Khin-U’s local drone forces reported that 11 PDF drones were shot down in Khin-U Township, destroying nearly 370,000,000 kyats worth of property because the military council used advanced drone weapons.

In early August, the NUG announced the launch of Project Dragon Fly and the establishment of Project Skywalk and drone forces. In addition, the news also said that drone operations called Federal Wings have been installed. Not only NUG but also the local PDFs have been increasing drone weapon installation by themselves since the last 3 months.

Since early September, there have been reports that the military council was purchasing advanced anti-drone weapons and Zaw Min Tun of the military council said at a press conference in Nay Pyi Taw on September 20 that Anti-Drone Guns have been installed in important places to prevent drone attacks.

During the operations, the military and the revolutionary forces proclaim each other in terms of psychological warfare, and we can see that they not only retaliate sayings but actually try to gain military advantage from gathering intelligence . It can be seen that the revolutionary forces are announcing that they can develop and install a large number of weapons, and the military itself is also expanding its purchase and installation of military weapons from abroad. The military is arming its soldiers fully to make them look like hell-bent killers and to drive mad dogs into the public.

Therefore, while resisting Myanmar continue to raise funds for donations and increase the installation of military weapons, it is also necessary to organize and rally support the unarmed civilians and rural farmers, who are suffering from the same war disaster as our revolutionary comrades, so that they do not lose their morale.

Writer Daw Hla Kyaw Zaw has highlighted such things in her article. … “In this spring revolution, which is like a beggar having to wage war against Indra, people’s revolutionaries have to fight back against these reactionary military forces at all military front, and at the same time, they need to do other means of organizing people in order to continuously get the public’s support. They must begin where they can and gradually expand. It is heartening to see revolutionaries doing what they can in some areas (helping local children with education, health, etc., as well as farming activities). The public seems satisfied. …”

As the military and political ups and downs of the revolution, like the above points, the military dictators will try to weaken the spirit of the revolutionary people and defeat them by sentencing the leaders to severe prison terms, brutally punishing and trampling them down, crushing all the people with excessive weapons. On their side, it is also necessary to stand united among the public in organizing activities (in addition to collecting money and donating) so that the morale of the people does not decline.


It is with this kind of spirit that the people are struggling and starving to death until the revolution succeeds, and now we see them supporting and encouraging the armed PDFs and marching forward. The eradication of the fascist army is world nirvana for them.
