Throughout history, Burmese Muslims have been involved in every liberation struggle

Throughout history, Burmese Muslims have been involved in every liberation struggle  The Burmese-born Muslim minority has historically lost much of its life, from the independence struggle to the current struggle against the military dictatorship. They are risking their lives.  On April 4, the All Burma Muslim Ethnic Advisory Council announced that 59 Burmese Muslims had been killed in more than a year since the military coup.  The dead were all those who opposed the coup in various ways and will continue to do so, Kyaw Swa, head of the All Burma Muslim Tribal Advisory Council, told RFA.  "What went into the city? It all includes arresting and retrieving the body. We can record as many as 59 people killed in connection with the Spring Revolution. History of the Democratic Revolution We Burmese Muslims have never lagged behind in this spring revolution. The current armed rebellion is also taking place. Those who are rebelling in other ways are also rebelling. "We believe we will fight until they fall."  U Soe Nay Oo, a mosque pioneer in Sagaing Division, told RFA that there is evidence that the Burmese-born Muslim minority has been heavily involved in the history of Burma's pro-democracy movement since Burma's independence struggle.  "We, the Burmese Muslims, have been involved in every turn in Burma. Like U Rajat, nowadays, like U Koni and Ko Mya Aye, we have been widely involved. By 2021, Ko Wai Moe Naing is well known. He is also a Muslim. "We took part in the anti-authoritarian movement."  He led a Muslim boycott in a township in the divisions during the 2021 coup d'état and has been active in supporting the non-violent rebellion (CDM) to this day.  At the beginning of the coup, the people were armed on the streets, but some young people chose armed struggles due to police and military shootings. This includes young Muslims.  "When we have a responsibility to free all, we must take part in this fight." Ko Myo Ko, a young Muslim man who took up arms against the military council, told RFA that the liberation of the country is also the liberation of Burmese Muslims, as the Muslim minority in Burma, which has been ruled by successive military dictatorships, has always been discriminated against.  "We, the Muslim minority, have never been free. We have always been discriminated against. We have always been treated as inferior citizens. Instead of being treated as Burmese citizens, we have been shaped by the military as foreigners and as immigrants.  Myo Ko said he now sees a positive attitude that there will be no discrimination and that Muslim youth will be given a place in the leadership and will fight together.  Aung Ko Ko, a student studying conflict and peace at a US university, said he hoped the new nation, which would overthrow the military dictatorship and rebuild it, would be a peaceful and just nation without discrimination.  "In this revolution, when we work together in different religions, there will be mutual understanding and understanding," he said. There will be more trust. If we understand each other's problems better, there will be less conflict in the new nation that will be rebuilt in the future. There will be more opportunities to build a united nation. The new country that will be overthrown by the military dictatorship will be more peaceful and prosperous. We hope it will become a more just society. "  Equality; Burmese Muslim youths interviewed by RFA said they would continue to oppose the military junta, which had seized power from a civilian government in order to build a new state of justice and peace.   More than 100,000 Burmese workers allowed to work in Thailand  According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Myanmar, The Thai Department of Labor (DoE) has allowed more than 140,000 migrant workers from Laos and Cambodia to work.  More than 160,000 Thai workers have applied for jobs, more than 100,000 of them, according to Pairoj Chotikasathien, director general of the Thai Department of Labor, according to the Bangkok Post.  Of the more than 100,000 migrant workers allowed by DoE to work in Myanmar, 117,029, compared to 38,933 in Laos and Cambodia.  Min Oo, a labor official with the Labor Education and Development Foundation (FED), said there were already plans to recruit workers.  "They already have a plan to call," he said. But employers, You have to apply for a work permit from the agents. These permits have to be vetted by the DOE. I confirmed to call. Out of more than 160,000 posts, more than 140,000 were allowed. The director general of the Department of Labor said.   More than 10,000 MOU workers from Laos and Cambodia have arrived in Thailand, but Myanmar has yet to find a One-Stop Service Recruitment Center to serve the MOU due to political unrest. Pairoj Chotikathien, director general of the Thai Labor Department, said it was not yet possible to transport the workers.  Min Oo said it would not be easy to recruit workers because of the ongoing fighting on the Thai-Burmese border and poor transportation.  "Once it is allowed, it is very close to working here," he said. Because the agencies over there already have collections. But if his date is not yet here, it will not be possible. However, if this is the case, most of them are from Ranong. I had to call from Kawthaung and Myawaddy. "At a time of political instability and shootings, it is difficult to come even if we get it."  Aung Myo Thant, a legal adviser with the Bangkok-based Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation (MOEAF), said he was still working on how to recruit MOU workers.  "We are working according to plan," he said. But nothing is known yet. Most of the work on the Burmese side has already been done, such as job offers, contracts and names. But I still do not know how to send it. There is still work to be done. This is the delivery trip. Will you go by car? "We are still working on whether to go by plane."  Aung Myo Thant said Burmese embassy officials in Bangkok were looking for job offers at the end of March to recruit MOU workers. Currently, more than 2.1 million migrant workers are allowed to work in Thailand without having to return home. Residence permit is extended.  The Thai government announced in early February that it would recruit 800,000 MOU workers to meet its economic needs.    Protest leaders call for 'Revolutionary Thingyan'  It only takes five days to reach Thingyan. Protest leaders are urging people to take part in this year's Thingyan as a revolutionary Thingyan.  How to celebrate Revolution Thingyan? Ko Tay Za San, the leader of the boycott in Mandalay, said, "We would like to pay tribute to our fallen martyrs, imprisoned heroes and PDF / ERO heroes in advance and fall."  The coup junta is preparing for this year's Thingyan celebrations. A strong pavilion has been erected in front of Rangoon City Hall, as well as a city hall on 26th Street in Mandalay.  Ko Tay Za San thinks that the military council is preparing to hold a big event this year to propagandize that the situation in the country is normal.  "I want to show that the country is normal now. The people have become accustomed to military rule. They are cold-blooded. They want to show that the country is normal. We want to show the world that the country is normal. We want to show that the country is normal." "Now is the time for the revolution, so I would like to urge you to celebrate the Revolution Thingyan."   Protesters are distributing leaflets calling for participation in the Revolutionary Thingyan. He also preached on the buses.  Nang Lin, a youth strike leader in Rangoon, said: "The current coup d'état in our country has been in a really bad situation for more than a year. It is a revolutionary Thingyan. "We call for participation in all kinds of revolutionary methods. It is an opportunity to show that the bloodshed of the revolution does not allow the regime to rule. Therefore, we must call for individual participation and unity."  With the exception of Torayo, the annual Thingyan festival was not celebrated in 2020 due to the Coronavirus epidemic.  In 2021, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, seized power from the people's elected government, sparking nationwide protests and a ban on Thingyan.   This year, it has been three years since Thingyan. Nang Lin, the leader of the strike, said: "When Thingyan is to be enjoyed, we must rejoice in a time when we, in all parts of Burma, in all the mountainous lands, in freedom and fearlessness, will be able to celebrate Thingyan, which is valued by all peoples, religions and ethnic groups. It is important for the people to fight for it.  According to the Association of Former Political Prisoners (AAPP), 1,735 people have been killed by the military council since the military coup on February 1, 2021.  At that rate, at least four people were killed each day during the coup.
