[b]Burma’s Anti-dictatorship People’s Freedom Movement calls for the people to rise against Burma’s junta generals.[/b]

[b]Washington DC, 21 August, ([/b] An appeal has been put forward for the people of Burma to grasp the rarest life opportunity to rise up against the Burma’s military rulers in order and unison like they did in 1988, while the junta generals were involved in purging, plotting against each other and clearing the ranks and file of the army.

While appealing to the people rise against the Army rulers, Anti-dictatorship People’s Freedom Movement in United States of America has cordially invited all freedom loving people to participate today in their 175th week of political defiance, a weekly demonstration in front of the residence of the Burma junta’s military representative located in the Washington DC.

“This week” according to the organizers of the demonstration, “we would like to pinpoint the fact that it is time for the people to say in unison that ‘we no longer want Than Shwe and his thieving regime anymore in our country’ and act accordingly and with determination also, unlike the United Nations statements backed by nothing other than ‘air.”

The invitation letter by the organizers undelined that there is no question about the role of the NLD and Aung San Suu Kyi playing in the democratic process of Burma and they further added that Than Shwe has kept them at bay by putting Aung San Suu Kyi out of sight and incommunicado and her people behind bars.

The Planning Committee of the Anti-dictatorship People’s Freedom Movement pointed out that now it is high time for the people of Burma to say or act in consensus, decidedly and determinedly also, that they have had enough of Than Shwe’s bullying and gimmicks for Burma’s democracy. There is no qualm over Than Shwe’s insincerity or unwillingness in the democratic process of Burma, other than his desire to establish himself in the country, the Committee said.
