Dialogue with CRPP?

Dear Dr Win Naing,
        I appreciate your willingness to see a dialogue between Daw Aung San
Suu Kyi, NLD , Democratic leaders and SPDC. Who want another bloodshed? Who
want to see another political turbulence in Burma? In the mean time , we
don't want to see any more political prisoners serving in brutal condition.
No more forced labor. No more injustice.  Cos we all are peace loving people
with great country , mother Burma.

 It is the SPDC regime who refuse to have a fair go . A true sense of
dialogue must be a prejudice - free . Do you agree with this point?
 Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is a much revered person , leader of CRPP,  NLD and
the entire people of Burma but SPDC always reject to have her in the
dialogue. Because their ego is hopelessly destructive . They can't even sit
down and talk with such a honorable person. It shows SPDC is such a coward ,
weak character.

I believe  dialogue must contain a democratic environment the both side are
not restricted or pre-conditioned. Local and global media must have access
to any genuine dialogue. In terms of legitimacy CPRR Committee Representing
People's Parliament led by Daw Aung Suu Kyi is trusted by general public
including ethnic minorities  and foreigners alike.  All of the ten leaders
in the CRPP are respectable figures ( please have a look at CRPP formation
and their notifications 1-24 )  .

Alternatively , SPDC should start a gesture of compassion by releasing all
political prisoners unconditionally. We have to make sure those activist do
not need to report twice a day to their local SPDC office.  In regards of a
participatory dialogue , freedom of expression must be allowed to let public
discuss their views on what going on with the dialogue.

It is pity,  indeed that SPDC consider they can go go ahead with their sham
National Convention , draw up the elements to justify their military power
in the future system and entrench a Constitutional Dictatorship . No way ,
my friend!

I think a genuine dialogue with above mentioned phenomena,  is the only way
to defuse current deadlock otherwise the showdown is escalating ( I am sure
you heard about 9999 global day of action!)

>which I learned while in Myanmar, from 20th..August to 19th.
>(1) The position of the Myanmar Government is that the Myanmar people
>themselves should solve their internal problems with mutual understanding,
>confidence and respect for one another.
>(2) Provided the NLD will relax its present rigid stand and be more
>flexible, the present Myanmar Government is fully ready and willing to work
>together with the NLD for the good of the country.
>A true dialogue should have a moderate and flexible approach. No one can

>conditions that two parties are flexible and bear respect and mutual
>understanding towards one another.

>Myanmar opposition Party Hluttaw Representatives strongly criticize Party's
>25 Pyithue Hluttaw Representatives Sign Declaration Demanding Party Start
>Dialogue with Government
>(Extract from a Japanese language article appearing in the ASAHI newspaper
>of 28 April 1999 made by Mr. Ryotsuke ONO, Bangkok, 27, April, 1999 )
>It is learnt that a signed declaration, requesting their party to have a
>dialogue with the Government, has been submitted to both the Myanmar
>Government and their own NLD party as well, by 25 Opposition Pyithue
>Hluttaw Representatives who were elected in the 1990 Multi-party Democracy
>General Election. In their declaration, they state that, " to have a
>dialogue, both the Government and the NLD must show flexibility and the
>willingness to compromise."
>They go on to point out that " NLD's decision to convene Parliament on its
>own has itself become a big obstacle to the holding of a dialogue," and
>criticize the NLD Central Committee's action. This is the first time in
>Myanmar that such a group of 25 NLD Hluttaw Representatives has released a
>signed declaration blaming on its own party.
>The signed declaration, issued on 26 April 1999, was addressed to one of
>the Government leaders Lt-Gen Khin Nyunt as well as to NLD chairman U Aung
>Shwe. Those signing the declaration include a well-known lawyer U Tun Shwe
>and a prominent NLD "woman sub-committee" member Daw Khin Aye Myint.
>The declaration first states that " Under the pressure of the Myanmar
>Government, NLD party members have resigned from the party ..(and) .. some
>party members have been detained ..." . The 25 NLD Pyithue Hluttaw
>Representatives then went on to say that " Prospect for holding a dialogue
>have been greatly reduced by the NLD's unilateral decision to hold a
>Hluttaw meeting by itself. Therefore we demand that the decision to convene
>Parliament on its own be reviewed."
>Regarding the declaration signed by the 25 NLD Pyithue Hluttaw
>Representatives, diplomatic circles in Myanmar commented: " The Government
>seems to have succeeded in urging some NLD Hluttaw Representatives to issue
>such a declaration. The NLD has no further recourse left to it to reduce
>the political impasse between itself and the Government. The feeling of
>being suffocated with no political outlet is becoming more and more evident
>among NLD  Hluttaw Representatives at present."
