3. NUG’s Union Minister Prof. Win Myat Aye claims that the Ministry of Social Welfare Relief and Resettlement, which is currently under junta control, is no longer a ministry that is appropriate for its name

Prof. Win Myat Aye, Union Minister of the National Unity Government’s Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, spoke at the community meeting with Myanmar people in San Francisco, United States, on July 16 about the Ministry of Social Welfare Relief and Resettlement, which is currently under junta control: “The Ministry of Social Welfare Relief and Resettlement of the previous government is now controlled by the military council, so it can no longer be called by that name. The Ministry of Social Welfare Relief and Resettlement is no longer what the Ministry of Social Welfare Relief and Resettlement was before. It no longer has humanitarian sympathy for the people, and there is no desire to rescue them. Far from rehabilitation, they are destroying everything, so it is a ministry that is not appropriate for its name.”

The National Unity Government reorganised the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management (MOHADM) as soon as it was formed as a new government.

Within two years of the establishment of the National Unity Government, the MOHADM provided humanitarian assistance worth 6.6 billion kyats to the people who were suffering due to the terrorist military council. The ministry also provides monthly food assistance for an average of 200,000 IDPs.

5. The actions of Thai caretaker government Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai to Myanmar not only disregards the people of Myanmar’s Spring Revolution but is also an attempt to create a political divide

On July 17, the General Strike Collaboration Committee (GCSS) issued a statement regarding the recent visit of Thai caretaker government Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai to Myanmar, arranged by the brutal military junta.

The GCSS stated that the Myanmar Spring Revolution is not person-centred but built on principles in accordance with the Federal Democracy Charter and that the Foreign Minister of Thailand’s caretaker government is “creating chaos in Myanmar’s politics.”

Moreover, the GCSS noted that the attempt of the Thai Foreign Minister, who promotes personalistic political culture, to push Myanmar’s issue within ASEAN “manifests ignorance and insult towards the Spring Revolution of Myanmar people—who are sacrificing so much and fighting for their political principles, not a person—is an act of politically conspiring disunity.”

The statement asserted that the efforts of the ASEAN member states as well as the international community, if they are to help resolve Myanmar’s issue, must be in line with the will of the people of Myanmar, who are waging the Spring Revolution, and made a strong recommendation that they do not engage in any conspiracy with their own vision that would cause greater chaos unnecessarily.

6. Pre-celebrations of Martyrs’ Day and recruitments of MFDMC support members were held in South Korea

The MFDMC said that during the demonstrations, the members of the MFDMC led and exhorted everyone to join forces and fight until the fall of the military dictatorship and to show unrelenting enthusiasm despite the revolution’s duration of more than two years.

After that, they mobilised new monthly support members, saluted the martyr leaders of all ethnicities who had given their lives fighting for the end of the military dictatorship for successive generations while lowering the flags to half-mast, and recited the revolutionary poems of the revolutionary poets.
