Spring Revolution Local News – Mar 22 (Evening)

Summary of News

1. The Acting President says that the military regime is creating an ethnic conflict by dividing the Karenni and Pa-O ethnic groups

At the March 21 Cabinet Meeting of the National Unity Government, Acting President Duwa Lashi La said the following in his remarks:

“Through joint operations, our victory will surely come into our hands. There are also circumstances consistently created by the military council in order to hinder our victory. In the Karenni region, the military regime is creating an ethnic conflict by dividing the Karenni and Pa-O ethnic communities. I would want to urge all of us to remain vigilant in the face of these circumstances and to continue our journey to achieve the revolutionary goal.”

The terrorist military forces were using excessive airstrikes and artillery to battle in the Sagaing Division, Magway Division, and Karenni States, where they were suffering heavy losses in the fights.

2. NUG’s Union Minister Dr. Zaw Wai Soe says that ground strikes pose a threat to terrorist military forces

At a meeting with township people’s administration groups and forces of ground strike committees on March 21, which was led by the Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration, Union Minister Dr. Zaw Wai Soe said:

  • The main thing is for all the revolutionary forces to work together in unity to implement the Federal Democracy Charter and deal with the sham election.
  • It can be seen that the strike forces exert international pressure on the terrorist military council.
  • The Federal Democracy Charter will, with the participation and collaboration of the population, help build a Federal Democracy Union.

Following that, the Union Minister of Women, Youths and Children Affairs, Naw Susanna Hla Hla Soe, gave welcoming remarks. She said that she would like to thank and congratulate all the strike forces and township people’s administration groups because, according to records, they are able to stage strikes in more than 50 locations across the country, which is quite satisfying.

The forces of the ground strike committees and the township people’s administrative groups present had discussions and exchanged views.

3. NUG’s Human Rights Minister tells the international community that concerns and worries about Myanmar’s issue are no longer sufficient and to show solidarity for the democratic forces

In an interview in March, Human Right Minister U Aung Myo Min said, “The fact that powerful countries like the EU and UK attach more importance to the Ukraine issue, which is geographically close to their territorial borders, and only act based on the ASEAN’s Five-Point Consensus, which is not really effective when it comes to the Myanmar issue, and that some neighbouring countries in ASEAN have the attitude of seeking profit by cooperating with the terrorist military council rather than solving the problem, these are our main challenges. In addition, we welcome concerns, but worrying is not enough. In order to prevent these [the atrocities committed by the military council], we need sanctions and solidity towards the democratic forces.”

Sanctions against the arms trade are needed specifically to target the terrorist military council at present.

4. Local PDFs and guerrilla forces used mines to attack a black Toyota Alphard carrying the chief of police near Zaw Ti Ka monastery in Monywa city

On March 21, the Youth Revolution Attack Force (YARF) released a mission report: “At 11:00 a.m. on March 21, the Youth Revolution Attack Force (YARF), in collaboration with Da Tha Guerrilla Force (Monywa PDF), detonated, despite strict security and inspections throughout Monywa, a 6-cluster mine at the intersection of Kyauk Kar and Yan Kin streets near Zaw Ti Ka monastery in Monywa city, to attack a black Toyota Alphard carrying the chief of police. The black Toyota Alphard was turned over when the mine struck it.”

Four people, including the police chief, were said to have been killed in the mine attack.

5. Myingyan Black Tiger (MBT) Camp No. 2 was raided by junta troops, and ammunition, including two homemade shoulder-fired grenade launchers and one homemade RPG, were seized

Myingyan Black Tiger (MBT) informed the news on March 22 as follows:

“We would like to inform the public that Camp No. 2 of our Myingyan Black Tiger (MBT), which is based in Magway and Sagaing Divisions, was raided by the coup terrorist army. Our comrades survived that raid on Camp No. 2, but we lost two home-made shoulder-fired grenade launchers and one home-made RPG, as well as ammunition.”

This is the second camp to be seized, as the junta troops also seized the MBT’s headquarters camp on March 18.

In order to defend against the military attacks that are still being made in the area, the MBT asked the populace to assist in arming.

6. Radio NUG is accessible in the Southern Regional Command territory of the NUG, where there is no internet access

On March 22, a PDF comrade from the 2nd Brigade of the Southern Regional Command told Radio NUG that they could listen to the Radio NUG programs in the Southern Regional Command territory where there was no internet access.

“Comrades in the battalion have to listen to and rely on the radio. They always listen to the defence minister’s radio speech. They also listen to the news program,” he said.

“Our comrades also want to know what the government future plans are. But there are few of them on the radio,” he continued.

Radio NUG’s programs are being broadcast with the aim of bringing news to areas without internet access.

7. The April 2 fundraising event of the Spring Tea Family from the San Francisco Bay Area will feature up to 55 food menus

The Spring Tea Family from the San Francisco Bay Area announced its April 2 fundraising event as follows:

“Please support our Spring Tea Family by placing a pre-order. The sale will close at 9 p.m. on March 30. Items ordered can be picked up on April 2 in Daly City, Union City, or Stockton, depending on your location.”

The funds raised will be said to be donated directly to local PDFs in Karenni (Kayah) State and Anyar (upland) regions, where the battles are fierce.

The food fundraising event of the San Francisco Bay Area Spring Tea Family is held once a month on the first Sunday of every month, and funds raised (both capital and profit) were effectively donated for the revolution.
