Myanmar junta, U.N. envoy fail to meet

Monday, October 01, 2007

Associated Press
YANGON, Myanmar -- A U.N. envoy was unable to meet with Myanmar's top two junta leaders in his effort to persuade them to ease a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters, but was allowed a highly orchestrated session Sunday with detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The military government, meanwhile, flooded the main city of Yangon with troops, swelling their numbers to about 20,000 by Sunday.

Scores of people also were arrested overnight, further weakening the flagging uprising against 45 years of military dictatorship.

Ibrahim Gambari, the U.N.'s special envoy to Myanmar, was sent to the country to try to persuade the notoriously unyielding military junta to halt its crackdown. Soldiers have shot and killed protesters, ransacked Buddhist monasteries, beaten monks and dissidents and arrested an estimated 1,000 people in the last week alone.

But it was not clear what, if anything, Gambari could accomplish.
Japan, Myanmar's largest aid donor, said it is mulling sanctions or other actions to protest the junta's crackdown, which left a Japanese journalist dead, the chief Cabinet spokesman said today.

Word by word translation

The man : Your honorable monk, my name is Moe Thee Zun and I was a student leader in 1988 revolution against current Military Dictators (“Dogs”: writer’s expressoin). Presently, Military Dictators are killing monks and civilians who are participating in the people’s movement against the Military Government peacefully in Burma. Due to this, more than 100 monks, many students, civilians and a Japanese Reporter have been perished. The famous entertainer Ko ZarGaNar has also been detained along with many other student leaders. The raids conducted by the military forces have led to the death of one of the most honorable abbot (1 of 5 to have completed Pidakat Thone Pone) of “Ngwe Kyar Yan” monastery. The whole country is in disarray. Please give us some guidance, Your honorable monk.


The honorable monk : I have already written newsletter to the monks in Burma, people and also the Association of Buddhist Religion. However, the situation has been worsen. In fact, I believe that those Dogs have no regards to our religion and showing the sign of willingness to even destroy the religion by doing all these ( killing the monks ). The monks have started this movement because the Dogs have been harassing and torturing the monks. And now, it seems Dogs are determined to crush the monks all over the country. All Buddhist must fight those Dogs because they aim to destroy our religion. Therefore, every Burmese led by the monks must fight those Dogs. If we don’t do this, those Dogs will become worse.

So how do we fight them? We will fight them righteously and peacefully. We must gather as much International help as we can get. This is our call of war by Buddhist religion. Dogs are destroying the religion ; they don’t regards the monks for who they are now. I would like to request all the monks in Burma to fight peacefully and to the people to follow and support the monks. If we don’t do this now, we will always be under the boots of those Dogs. I heard with my own ears in 1984 about how those Dogs were saying after they stole the power that everyone must be under army boots.

I would like to request all the monks to be resilience and not to give up the movement. I would try to come back into Burma one way or another to join your movement. People also must believe in the movement and not giving up. We can no longer sit and watch. We must find a way to over-throw those Dogs.

We must learn the lesson after 1988 revolution. Those Dogs made sure everyone was under their boots. They systematically destroyed our Education system and drove our economy into depression.

I would like to remind everyone to take care of themselves.
