Hi everyone,

To thank everyone for their fabulous activism so far this year, and as a fun chance to take action on Amnesty's campaign for the 3 Freedoms in Burma, we'd like to invite you to "Shine a Light for Burma" and celebrate with some creative photo action-taking and a lovely picnic down at the Matilda Bay foreshore. We'll have some pizza and as the sun goes down, we'll have sparklers and glow sticks, and use them to write words of hope for the thousands of political prisoners behind bars in Burma. We'll use slow shutter photography to capture the words, and Artillery will use the photos as part of their event promotions. So come on down, and SHINE A LIGHT FOR BURMA! It's a great chance to catch up and have some fun on a lovely Monday night :)

Details are: Monday 25 October at 6pm. We'll be playing with some sparklers and slow capture camera lenses to take some exciting creative photos to raise awareness about freedoms in Burma. Please RSVP to jill.downard@amnesty.org.au, so that I know how much food we'll require.

What is Amnesty doing with regard to Burma? As you may know, Burma is holding it's first democratic election in 20 years. Amnesty is campaigning to defend the freedoms of association, expression, and assembly in Burma, and asking that Burma release its thousands of political prisoners that are currently behind bars for their activism and opposition to the regime.

All are welcome, so please feel free to forward this along to whoever you think will be interested. I hope you can make it!

၈၈-မ်ဳိးဆက္(ဆစ္ဒနီ) မွ ၾသစေတ်းလ် လ၀က ၀န္ႀကီးထံသုိ႔ စာတင္

ကုိစုိးလြင္ႏွင့္ရဲေဘာ္မ်ားမွ (ဆစ္ဒနီ)

Chris Bowen MP
Minister for Immigration and Citizenship Affairs
Parliament House
Canberra ACT 2600

Date: 21 October 2010

Dear Minister,

Burmese Community’s Request should be revoked a Performance Visa to the Military Junta’s Artist Khant Si Thu if a visa already issued to perform at a Festival in Australia

1. We understand that culture is important to the development of a country and social values of its people. In that regard, artists can change the thinking of the people for either good or bad depending on the role they took in public life.

2. The above-mentioned artist gave the excuse that his role in making of the film, ‘Aharyone Oo-Hmar Phoo Thi Kyar’ (literally meaning The Budding of the Lotus at Dawn) was the result of him and other artists being coerced into it by the regime. The film was mainly a distortion of Burma’s history and the propaganda to mislead future generations. Whatever the reason, the artist’s complicity in the making of the film should not be taken lightly as a valid excuse.

3. It is all under the grand scheme of the military for its perpetuate rule in Burma. The regime not only has avoided Australian Government’s sanctions imposed on them and their families by issuing their children passports with false names in order to study in Australia. They are sending monks, Pastors, writers, singers and actors as their emissaries to win over the Burmese community living overseas. Their malicious scheme was exposed in the United States and the visas of the artists and his colleagues were revoked. (The press cutting of the matter is attached herewith for your information).

4. Since the visit of this group of artists sympathetic to the military is nothing but the source of division and instability among the Burmese community living overseas, we would like to request the Minister that a performing visa or a visa of any category should not be issued and if a visa of any kind has already issued, should be revoked in accordance with the Migration Act of Australia for future.

5. To our knowledge, the above-mentioned artist was invited to perform at the festival to be held at Marrickville Town Hall in Sydney.

With regards,

88 Generation Students in Australia.

US revoked Visas of Burmese Junta’s Artists

Moemaka Reporter 002, October 9, 2010.

US Immigration revoked performance visas issued to Ovation Burmese music band before the completion of the USA tour.

Among the 10 Burmese performers was actress Wyne Suu Khine Thein who performed in the Junta’s propaganda film (Lotus at Dawn – Ar Yon Oo Ma Poo Thi Kyar). The film disregarded the Burmese struggle for democracy in Burma and portrayed it as acts of anarchy and violence.

The tour began in August 2010 and encountered numerous protests by the Burmese community in the US. As a result, U Ei Tha Ri ya (the monk who sponsored the visas for the band) filed personally on 7th October to the US government that he was withdrawing his sponsorship.

Ko Nyi Nyi Aung, an active activist from the Burmese community in Washington DC Metro area, told Moemaka that the United State’s Immigration Service immediately revoked their P1 visas of all of the 10 Burmese from the band because the band had caused controversy among Burmese American Community due to its inclusion of the junta’s propaganda actress, and the its sponsorship by the Burmese monk had been withdrawn.

According to the immigration rules and regulation, all the band members lost their visitors’ status and are considered illegal visitors. It was learnt that not only they were to leave the country effective immediately but also they will be prohibited to enter the US for the foreseeable future. The list of revoked visas include: Soe Moe (Manager), Min Maw Kun (Actor), Ye Lay (Actor), Leonard Maung Maung Lwin (Musician), Petric Maylar (Musician), Ye Phone (Musician), Tutkey (Musician), Wyne Su Khaing Thein (Actress), L. Sai Zee (Singer) and Rebecca Win (Singer).

“Since from the beginning of their tour, there were many discussions made within Burmese community to avoid protests but they (the band and the their supporters) never backed down and continued their tour. Due to our political principle and belief, we had to protest them as the instruments of the Burmese junta. However we were not making any personal attacks to the members of the band. Finally it was due to the solidarity of Burmese American community, collective wisdom of the Burmese monks’ community and last but not the least the policy of the US government to impose political sanction on the Burmese regime and its accomplices, the matter came to the end peacefully and lawfully” said Ko Toe Lwin, one of the active activists and dissidents of NLD (LA) (an exile branch of Burmese opposition party of Burma, NLD led by Aung San Suu Kyi) now living in San Francisco Bay Area.

This is first time in 20 years after the Burmese regime bloody coup in Burma that the Burmese American community publicly denounced the Junta’s propaganda activity and its supporters, and resulted in the expulsion of the regime’s artists.

မိမိအက်ဳိးကလြဲရင္ က်န္တာဂရုမစုိက္သူမ်ား၊ မိမိခ်မ္းသာဖုိ႔ဆုိရင္ ဘယ္သူ ့ကုိပဲ ထိခုိက္ထိခုိက္ လုပ္ဖုိ႔၀န္မေလးသူမ်ားအားလုံးကုိ က်ေနာ္တုိ႔ မုန္းသင့္ပါတယ္။ လူမ်ဳိးတုိင္းမွာ ဒီလုိလူမ်ဳိးေတြရွိပါတယ္။ ျမန္မာကစလုိ႔ ရွမ္းအဆုံးမွာလည္း ဒီလုိ ပုတ္သုိးေနတဲ့ လူေတြရွိပါတယ္။ ခြဲျခားၾကည့္ဖုိ႔ပါ။ ဒါက အနည္းစုပါ။


ျဖစ္ႏုိင္ရင္ ဘယ္ဘာသာကမွ ျမင့္ျမတ္တယ္ဆုိတဲ့အေတြးအေခၚအယူအဆကုိ မထားသင့္ဘူး။ ဘာျဖစ္လို႔လဲဆုိေတာ့ ဘယ္ဘာသာက ျမင့္ျမတ္လဲဆုိတာ က်ေနာ္နားမလည္လုိ႔ပါ။ မသိလုိ႔ပါ။ ဒုကၡေရာက္ရင္ ဘုရားကယ္တယ္လုိ႔ေတာ့ ၾကားဖူးတယ္။ ျဖစ္ႏုိင္ရင္ က်ေနာ္က အကုန္လုံးကုိ ကုိးကြယ္ခ်င္တယ္။ က်ေနာ္ဒုကၡေရာက္ရင္ ဘုရားေပါင္းစုံကယ္ႏုိင္ေအာင္လုိ ့။ ဘုရားတစ္ဆူမအားရင္ အျခားဘုရားတစ္ဆူက ကယ္ႏုိင္မယ္ထင္လုိ႔ပါ။

ႏုိင္ငံေရး ႏွင့္ ဘာသာေရးမေရာေစနဲ႔

စစ္အာဏာရွင္ စနစ္ကုိ ေတာ္လွန္ေနတာပါ။ ေတာ္လွန္တဲ့ေနရာမွာ စစ္အာဏာရွင္စနစ္ႀကီးထြားလာေအာင္ အားေပးအားေျမွာက္လုပ္တဲ့လူမွန္သမွ် က်ေနာ္ေတာ္လွန္မယ္။ အေတြးအေခၚ၊ လုပ္ဟန္ (က်ေနာ္ကြန္ျမဴနစ္မဟုတ္ပါ)၊ အပါအ၀င္ ဘယ္လုိနည္းနဲ႔ စစ္အာဏာရွင္စနစ္ကုိ ေထာက္ခံ၊ ေထာက္ခံ က်ေနာ္တုိ႔ရႈတ္ခ်တယ္။ ဒီေနရာမွာ မြတ္စလင္မွ၊ တရုတ္မွ မဟုတ္ဘူး။ ေထာက္ခံတဲ့လူမွန္သမွ် ခြင့္မလႊတ္ပါဘူး။

ေရြးေကာက္ပြဲမွာ မဲ, ရဖုိ႔အဓိကပါ

စစ္တပ္က ကုိယ္စားလွယ္ေတြက သူတုိ႔ကုိ မဲေပးဖုိ႔အတြက္ နည္းမ်ဳိးစုံနဲ႔လုပ္မွာပဲ။ ဗလီမကလုိ႔၊ ဘုံေက်ာင္းေဆာက္ေပးဆုိလည္း ေဆာက္ေပးမွာပဲ။ ဒါက စည္းရုံးေရးျဖစ္တယ္။ အာဏာရွင္က တရား၀င္အာဏာရွင္ျဖစ္ေရးလုပ္တာကို အားလုံးသိတယ္။ ဗလီေဆာက္ေပးေတာ့ ဗလီရတယ္။ လမ္းေဖာက္ေပးေတာ့ လမ္းရတယ္။ မဲ, ေတာ့မေပးနဲ႔။ ရသမွ်အကုန္ယူထားေပါ့။

အရင္တုန္းက မြတ္စလင္ေတြကုိ စစ္အစုိးရႏွိမ္တယ္။ အခုလက္တေလာ မဲရေအာင္ မြတ္စလင္ေတြကိုဖားတယ္။ စစ္အစုိးရက သူ႔အလုပ္သူလုပ္တာဆုိေတာ့ ဘာမွမေျပာေတာ့ဘူး။


ဘယ္ဟာ မွားေနတာလဲ။ မွားေနတာကို ေထာက္ျပၿပီး ဒဲ့ဒုိး တုိက္ခိုက္ပါ။ ၀ါးလုံးရွည္နဲ႔ေတာ့ မရမ္းၾကနဲ႔။ အခု မွားေနတာက ေရြးေကာက္ပြဲအတုကိစၥပဲ။ ဒါကုိလုပ္ၿပီး သူတုိ႔အာဏာတရား၀င္ယူဖုိ႔အတြက္လုပ္္ေနတာက မွန္ေနတာလား။

ဘယ္လူမ်ဳိး၊ ဘာသာကြဲမဆုိ သူတုိ႔ကုိ စိတ္ပုိင္းဆုိင္ရာ၊ ရုပ္ပုိင္းဆုိင္ရာ အားေပးေထာက္ခံတာကုိေတာ့ က်ေနာ္တုိ႔ရႈတ္ခ်တယ္။ စစ္အစုိးရကုိအားေပးေနတဲ့လူေတြထဲမွာ ျမန္မာလည္းပါတယ္။ ရခုိင္လည္းပါတယ္။ တရုတ္လည္းပါႏုိင္တယ္။ ကုလားလည္းရွိတာပဲ။ ဆုိေတာ့ လူအမ်ဳိးအမ်ဳိး၊ ဘာာသာအမ်ဳိးအမ်ဳိးရွိႏုိင္တယ္။ ဒီလူေတြက ဒီမုိကေရစီေရးတုိက္ပြဲမွာ ဘာမွသုံးစားလုိ႔မရတဲ့လူေတြပဲ။ ဒီလုိမ်ဳိး လူပုတ္သုိးေတြကုိပဲ တုိက္ခုိက္ပါ။

ျဖစ္ႏုိင္ရင္ ခြဲျခားၿပီး ျမင္ႏုိင္ေအာင္ က်ဳိးစားၾကည့္ေပါ့။
