Burma's 8-8-88 Massacres Commemorated in more than 8 Countries
The Rangoon Post - Free Burma Independent Media
8 August, 2000
Free Burma activists,the elected NCGUB government and friends of Burma, are
commemorating the massacres of up to 10,000 men, women, monks and children.
In Washington, D.C. there will be the traditional wreath laying ceremony at
the embassy residence as well as a demonstration at the Japanese embassy. At
junta control embassies and consulates around the world from Malaysia to
London and Tokyo to South Africa demonstrators will meet on August 8th to
remember the martyrs and again present their demands that range from "Halting
human rights abuses by the military" to stepping down and allowing the
legally elected and legitimate government led by Prime Minister Doctor Sein
Win into power.
Will Burma be free in 2000? It remains to be seen. Some insiders are very
confident this year. While others are skeptical that the junta in all its
various forms over the past 38 years will even decide to do the right thing
for the country this time and not what they want.
