, the Director of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said “In
Burma, it is our general beliefs that if the three sons of Burma are united togetherand joined hands together, we can bring about the change in Burma. In 1988 and1996, the students (the sons of the schools) were spear-headed the public and openedthe new chapters in Burma. In 2007, the Buddhist monks (the sons of the LordBuddha) were at the fore-front of the public demanding the change in Burma. Now this time, we genuinely hope that the soldiers (sons of the wars) will take the lead
bringing about the peace and prosperity in Burma.”
U Tint Swe Thiha, the Patron of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said “The
Burma soldiers have the good reputation of standing with the public decisively whenthe time is necessary. When we look at the 1988 mass uprising, the Burma soldiersfrom army, navy and air-force joined hands together with the public and unitedtogether. As the result, General Ne Win led one party authoritarian regime wastoppled leading toward holding the election in 1990 in which Daw Aung San Suu Kyiled National League for Democracy (NLD) won the land-
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) understands that most of the soldiers in theBurma military wanted to serve the people and the nation rather than a bunch of thecorrupted dictator generals.
Daw Khin Aye Aye Mar, the Patron of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said “In
Burma, Maw-Bi, Taik-Gyi, Min-Gala-Don and Maik-Hti-La constituencies are rightto say the military towns since they are mostly hosting soldiers of the military bases.In 1990 election, almost all of the military towns voted for the Daw Aung San Suu
Kyi’s Party and elected the NLD MPs. Now, the time is RIGHT again and we honest
ly hope that patriotic soldiers will take action decisively leading towards national
reconciliation in Burma.”
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) expresses our solidarity with the patriotic soldiersfighting for their rights and we would like to call for all the people of Burma to welcome the brave patriotic soldiers.
