The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) vows to root out the military dictators, who are the common enemy, with full nationalism
The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) sent a message to the 102nd National Victory Day, which falls on November 17. The contents of the message state:
“On the occasion of the 102nd National Victory Day, which falls today, the CRPH would like to pray that all ethnic groups and citizens will be able to continue to walk with full strength during the spring revolution, facing the evil dictatorial system with great awareness.
Under British Colonial Rule, on December 5, 1920 (the 10th waning day of Tazaungmone, Myanmar Era 1282), the historic day of National Victory Day came into being.
Similarly, at present, the budding democracy has already been destroyed since the nation’s sovereignty was illegally seized by the military from the people’s government led by President U Win Myint and State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, who were democratically elected by the people’s vote.
On this special day, the CRPH would like to record with pride and respect the young students who have been actively and brilliantly participating in the reforms of the country while boldly resisting the dictators from all ages until this spring revolution and the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the country.
In order for the complete disappearance of the military dictatorship on the land of Myanmar and to achieve the dream of a new federal democratic country, which the ethnic people have been hoping for many years but has yet to be realized, the CRPH strongly urges all to confront and overcome the military dictators’ divisions and deceptions, and to continue working together in unity.
The Union Hluttaw Representation Committee is preparing in various sectors to take the lead in shaping a better future for the country and the people by responsibly exercising the authority entrusted by the electorates, and is sending this message with an affirmation to eradicate the common enemy, military dictators, together with all revolutionary forces with full national spirit.”
The 102nd National Victory Day ceremony on November 17 was hosted by the NUCC and broadcast live. Acting President Duwa Lashi La, Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn Khaing Thann, Chairman of the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw U Aung Kyi Nyunt, union ministers of the National Unity Government, as well as other relevant officials, attended the ceremony.
Acting President Duwa Lashi La’s message at the National Victory Day ceremony saying that the new country will be built by discarding the old country
At the 102nd National Victory Day ceremony organized by the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) on November 17, Acting President Duwa Lashi La remarked the following:
“I would like to give a speech to all the members of the National Unity Consultative Council. We will discard the old country and build a new one. In building a new country, we will try to build around it with new ideas, new visions, and new spirits. We will all try to work together to love and appreciate each other more than before. We want to achieve a national unity not seen in more than 70 years of independence.”
In addition, the Acting President also urged to work together, both mentally and physically, on this spring revolution as a national revolution for national unity and the eradication of military dictatorship.
NUG Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng says that helping and donating during the revolution is an expression of love
In November, Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng made a remark regarding donations by the people.
“During the revolution, helping and donating was not about having more or less; it was about showing love. It is providing warmth,” Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkwang said.
The fundraising campaign, “Help Kachin—Passion for Hope,” was launched recently to help displaced people in Kachin State and to use in places in need.
The NUG Human Rights Minister says that even though the military council released political prisoners, there is nothing to be thankful for
U Aung Myo Min, Union Minister of Human Rights of the National Unity Government, commented on the release of political prisoners by the military junta on November 17.
“The military council released the people who were unjustly arrested, including political prisoners, in order to polish their election paths. I am happy for those who were freed. But there is nothing to be thankful for. I want everyone to see the tie that those freed will be punished if they do again. I also do not want everyone to forget the current situation where people are being unjustly prosecuted without any evidence. I believe that everyone will continue to fight while understanding being tied and controlled by using your common sense, as you all are comrades who will continue to fight in the revolution,” said the Union Minister.
The military council has closed the case against eleven artists who were charged with Section 505(a) of the Penal Code and released 5,774 prisoners in various prisons from their sentences.
NUG Deputy Foreign Minister U Moe Zaw Oo will attend the conference organized by the World Affairs Council of America
On November 17, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the NUG announced that Deputy Minister U Moe Zaw Oo will attend a conference themed “Navigating a Fractured World,” organized by the World Affairs Council of America.

Clapp, Senior Advisor at the Institute of Peace, under the theme “Navigating a Fractured World.”
At the United Nations, Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun states that urgent and decisive action against the Myanmar military is immediately required
U Kyaw Moe Tun, Representative of Myanmar to the UN, addressed the Third Committee of the 77th Session of the General Assembly of the UN on the “Situation of human rights of Rohingya Muslims and other minorities in Myanmar.”
“For nearly 22 months, all people in Myanmar have been suffering from inhumane and terrorists acts of the junta. The statements and reports of the international community including UN agencies and mechanisms have greatly pointed out the military’s countless atrocities and human rights violations against the innocent civilians. Therefore, an urgent and decisive action by the international community is immediately required to stop the military’s further atrocities and to end the military impunity.”
Furthermore, the ambassador claims that all of the circumstances have demonstrated that the Rohingya crisis cannot be solved in isolation, but must be addressed holistically.
