1. The National Unity Government pledges to end military coups in its statement sent to the ceremonies of the 61st Anniversary of the “Seventh July Student Uprising”

The National Unity Government issued a statement to the ceremonies of the 61st Anniversary of the “Seventh July Student Uprising” which fell on July 7, 2023.

“Today, July 7, marks the 61st anniversary of the Seventh July (July 7, 1962) Student Uprising, when the blood of young students who bravely and decisively opposed the brutality of the military rulers in Myanmar fell on the ground of Yangon University,” the statement said.

On July 7, 1962, the military dictator’s henchmen bloodied the students on the land of Yangon University, where historical educated-political leaders were born, and the student union building was brutally bombed and destroyed, the statement said.

Just as the military dictators during the historical periods, who lacked intelligence and relied on weapons, brutally killed and tortured the students who were the future of the country for no reason, in the 21st century, the terrorist military led by the dictator Min Aung Hlaing continues to brutally torture and kill the entire population of monks, students, and other civilians, the statement continued.

Aiming to completely eradicate the military coups that “made the history of Myanmar ugly and encouraged murder by relying on weapons,” to ensure no dictators will emerge again in the future and the military dictators who have committed war crimes against humanity be punished, the National Unity Government expressed its determination to continue its best efforts in the spring revolution with the combination of the union spirit of courageous students who were revolutionised for all ages, the determination of the people, and the experience of diverse ethnic resistance leaders.

Union Minister Dr. Zaw Wai Soe said the following in his opening remarks at the ceremony: “As everyone knows, Seventh July is a symbol of revolution. It is a symbol of revolution against the military dictatorship. Even the word ‘Seventh July’ was forbidden to us when we were young. I see that the revolution that has been going on for generations needs to end today.”

Moreover, the Union Minister went on to say that the courageous sacrifice of the students’ union and the students in 1962 remains a source of strength for today’s revolution.

Meanwhile, Ko Chit Win Maung, a former students’ union leader of the Magway People’s Strike Committee, called on national level celebrations of anniversaries of the Seventh July Student Uprising in the post revolution period. He said, “I would like to make a request while Sayargyi Dr. Zaw Wai Soe is here that the new government that will be formed following the revolution hold the Seventh July celebrations at the national level.”

Then he explained the history of the Seventh July Student Uprising and the spirit of the students’ union and declared that students’ unions of all ages opposed the military dictatorship.

After that, the event organiser, PSSTF, provided psychosocial support training and discussions to the people and CDMers present. The CDM students then performed the union mother’s song in the entertainment session of the event.
