1. Acting President Duwa Lashi La calls on unity under one chain of command to achieve revolutionary victory

Acting President Duwa Lashi La made this appeal in his State of the Union Address on the second anniversary of the declaration of the People’s Defensive War by the National Unity Government on September 7:

“I would like to make a special appeal to the local defence forces (LDFs) to join our PDF and allies in building a mass force and conducting an offensive against the military junta forces. In defeating the military junta, it is vitally important that we be organised and unified, as well as have a well-organised chain of command in the military. Therefore, I would like to appeal to everyone to unite under a single chain of command and achieve the goal of revolutionary victory.”

Furthermore, the Acting President warned the revolutionaries to consistently adhere to the military code of conduct while engaged in combat and to avoid thinking and behaving like military dictators, given that they themselves are actually opposing the military dictatorship.

The National Unity Government has now established more than 300 battalions and columns under the People’s Defence Force (PDF) in addition to People’s Defence Organisations (PDO/Pa-Ka-Fa), which function as People’s Militia, in over 250 townships in the three military regions.

U Aung Myo Min, Union Minister for Human Rights of the National Unity Government, stressed the importance of unity and collective strength through Facebook, saying:

“During the revolution, we cannot be content with our own comfort. We can’t just do our part alone. We must also have a desire to improve the lives of those who are not comforted. Instead of merely completing our tasks, we must do our best. Collective strength is more crucial than individual strength.”
