Burma Democratic Concern had distributed this statement inside Burma

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC): People Power
If Burmese junta is willing to negotiate with the opposition leader, they must come to discussion table and must release all political prisoners. This is the first step forward and they must prove it by doing so. Junta is using prisoners’ release as the bargain chip. They always did in the past and will do in the future. Junta wanted to ease-off pressure by releasing a few political prisoners. We do not accept any delaying tactics or small scale concession or using tricks. Student and ethnic leaders also called for the genuine dialogue and to recognise 1990 election result. Aung San Suu Kyi said she is willing to co-operate with the regime to make the process a success. Aung San Suu Kyi has been calling for genuine time-bound dialogue but regime fails to cooperate and declared that they are planning to hold another election in 2010 in which they are set to win. On February 2, 2009 Aung San Suu Kyi demanded 4 main principles to military junta-
• To recognise 1990 election result
• To convene people’s parliament based on 1990 election result
• To review 2008 constitution
• To release all political prisoners
We call for all Burmese citizens to join with Aung San Suu Kyi and demand junta above 4 main principles. “If this country is to achieve genuine democracy, the result of the elections of 1990 must be recognized. It must be recognized by the military regime, as it has been recognized by the people, and by the world at large. It is through this recognition that we will be able to make genuine progress in Burma. The results of the 1990 General Elections must be implemented is a resolution already taken by the United Nations. We already know that the General Assembly of the United Nations has accepted the notion that the will of the people has been expressed in the 1990 General Elections. This is something we cannot abandon. It will be to the detriment of our country if after an election has been held the results are not honoured and we do not resist attempts to trivialise it”, Aung San Suu Kyi insists.
We want government of the people, by the people and for the people. Let’s work together to gain our freedom through mass movements, civil disobedient and mass uprisings.
