Spring Revolution Local News – Jul 10 (Evening)

Summary of News

1. Union Minister Daw Zin Mar Aung says that stronger international pressure is needed to halt the steps of the military council, that is treating the public as an enemy

Union Minister Daw Zin Mar Aung responded in a media interview in July that stronger international pressure is needed to halt the steps of the military council, that is treating the public as an enemy.

“There are efforts made by the AHA Centre [ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on Disaster Management] to provide [humanitarian] support to cyclone victims [in Myanmar]. However, they have not yet reached people who are actually suffering. ASEAN is not allowed to travel to the affected areas. Humanitarian access to the affected areas has been restricted by the military council. Not only ASEAN but also UN agencies are not allowed. That is why, no matter how willing the international community is to help, the military council is not willing to cooperate. They [the military regime] have no real goodwill towards the country and its people. The current international pressure is not enough to halt the steps of the military council that is treating the public as an enemy. We need to put more and stronger pressure on them,” Union Minister Daw Zin Mar Aung said.

Even before the cyclone, there were already about 18 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, and more than 1.8 million people remain displaced in Myanmar.

2. Union Minister Prof. Win Myat Aye urges the people to participate in “Let’s finish Min Aung Hlaing’s House to Strengthen Anyar Myay (Upland Region)” campaign

On July 10, Prof. Win Myat Aye, the National Unity Government’s Union Minister for Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Management, through his social media, urged people to take part in the End of Dictatorship (EOD) campaign to provide support to people who are in need of humanitarian aid in the Anyar region.

“According to UN estimates, the terrorist military offensive in the Anyar (upland) region displaced over 900,000 people and destroyed at least 60,000 houses. International humanitarian aid has also been stopped from reaching the Anyar region by the terrorist military. The End of Dictatorship is organising the “Let’s Finish Min Aung Hlaing House to Strengthen Anyar Myay” campaign to provide support to the Anyar region, which still needs a lot of humanitarian aid due to the inhumanity of the military,” Prof Win Myat Aye said. “The public who love Anyar and its people who are bravely resisting the injustice, let’s prove that ‘we have us’ not by words but by deeds,” he urged.

The campaign to strengthen the Anyar region has sold 1,484 shares worth US$148,400 within 6 days.

The second project of the EOD, InyaView@6.5 Mile, a residential property illegally acquired by terrorist leader Min Aung Hlaing and situated at six and a half miles in Yangon, saw the sale of 40,000 of its 70,000 shares, generating US$4 million. Now, the remaining 30,000 shares worth US$3 million, at US$100 each, will be sold within 20 days and donated to the victims of the terrorist military’s arson attack in the Anyar region.

3. Union Minister Prof. Win Myat Aye had a warm and cordial meeting with the Myanmar diaspora in New York

On July 10, the New York-based Myanmar community organisation, the NYCBC, announced that there was a warm and cordial meeting between Union Minister Prof. Win Myat Aye and Myanmar people in New York City on July 9.

Prof. Win Myat Aye will also have another community with Myanmar families in Folsom in Sacramento, the capital city of the U.S. state of California, on July 11. After that, he will also have a community meeting in Los Angeles, Southern California, on July 14.

At the meetings, the minister will explain the work done and being done by the NUG government during the two and a half years of the Spring Revolution, and the attendees will have the opportunity to ask the minister whatever questions they have about the revolution-related issues.

4. As the fighting escalates, most of the junta soldiers no longer dare to leave the bases but instead have to prepare for defence inside the bases

U Maung Maung Swe, Deputy Permanent Secretary of the NUG’s Ministry of Defence, said in a media interview in July that as the fighting escalated, most of the terrorist military troops did not dare to leave their bases any more but instead prepared defences inside the bases.

He said, “As the fighting escalates, we can go on the offensive from the defensive. When the fighting increased in pace, they [the military council’s soldiers] rarely dared to go outside their bases. When they did not go outside but instead prepared defences inside the bases, our drone forces could attack them effectively.”

According to the Ministry of Defence, there were 500 instances of clashes with the junta forces in Sagaing, Magway, Mandalay Regions, and northern Shan State in No. 1 Military Region, which resulted in 449 enemy causalities and 681 injuries. A large amount of ammunition as well as 24 different types of weapons were seized during those clashes. The clashes were fought by the PDF battalions, Pa-Ka-Fa forces under the command of No. 1 Military Region Command, and allied Ethnic Resistance Organisations (EROs).

5. The “Tawl Hlan Na Kham Nee (Revolutionary Lipsticks)” fundraising campaign has so far raised 54% of its goal, and people are being encouraged to contribute the remaining 46%

Since there is only one week left to finish the campaign, we would like to encourage everyone to contribute to the Tawl Hlan Na Kham Nee campaign before its last date, July 16, 2023.”
