4. NUG’s Deputy Education Minister says that the method of suppression used by the military council throughout the ages is instilling fear and division

On April 12, Daw Ja Htoi Pan, the National Unity Government’s deputy minister of education, made the following remarks regarding the oppressive methods used by the military council:

“The military council’s methods of suppressing those who oppose it throughout the ages have been to instil fear and divide. There are also many examples showing that its methods of suppression were effective. It used various forms of division. One of them is instilling the belief, which is coming out of its equation, that the revolution is being carried out by a subversive group. In reality, the anti-military movements that have risen throughout the ages have emerged from the general public. Now in the spring revolution, the military council is dividing the populace and the revolutionaries as if the revolutionaries had nothing to do with the populace. The military council portrays the revolutionary movement as the enemy of the general public, engaging in war crimes without differentiating between military and civilian targets. What do these acts show? They want to show that those who support or are related to the PDF, NUG, and other revolutionary parties will face the same fate. They are dividing the public and the revolutionary forces.”

5. A prayer rally for the people of Kanbalu will be held in New York, USA

A prayer rally for the people of Kanbalu and the people of Myanmar, who are bearing the brunt, will be held in New York, USA, on April 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. local time.

U Nay Tin Myint from the NYCBC told Radio NUG about the prayer rally to be held at Moore Homestead Playground in New York, USA, as follows:

“Recently, on April 11, in Kanbalu, the military group carried out an air strike, bombed people, and brutally killed people with machine guns from aeroplanes. As a result, more than 100 people, including children, pregnant women, and the elderly, were killed, and many others were injured. Therefore, we, the NYCBC in New York City, USA, will be holding a prayer rally for the people of Kanbalu and the people of Myanmar, who are bearing the brunt, on April 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in order to express our clear opposition to and condemnation of the actions of the terrorist military group. There are three main purposes. The first point is that this kind of thing is not just happening now; it has happened in Hpa-Kant before, and it has happened many times in other states and divisions as well. Therefore, we are asking the international government and international leaders to take action since condemnation is no longer enough. Mainly, we urge them to impose the no-fly zone precisely. The second point is urging the United Nations, including the UN Security Council, to strictly implement the noflyzone issue since only by doing so will our innocent people be safe from being brutally killed every day. In case the UN and the UNSC cannot decide on these issues, we urged them to hand the Myanmar issue over to the ICC and let the ICC implement these issues. The third point is that we want to show that all the people in the rest of Myanmar and New York citizens stand soldierly with the people of Kanbalu and will continue to fight with all our strength and mental strength to eliminate this terrorist military group from motherland Myanmar.”
