Mon people and Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM)Welcoming the Release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Genuine National Reconciliation

December 3, 2010

Along with the people in Burma and international community, the Mon people and Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) are glad to see that Burma’s democracy leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, was released on November 13.

Many people expect she can make a change for Burma, as she also officially spoke about building up a ‘national reconciliation’.  But since the regime change after November 7 was not significant, whether she can move forward or deal with the regime in getting genuine national reconciliation remains a question.

The people in the entirety of Burma have suffered enough because of no ‘national reconciliation’ in this country.  The regime has not tolerated the people ‘s freedom of speech and assembly since 1988 and the people’s and Buddhist monks’ peaceful demands’ for national reconciliation and peace are always rejected.

Ceasefire talks with ethnic armed groups do not proceed toward peace and reconciliation.  The regime uses them just for show and never guarantees them rights to their lands, property, language, and culture preservation.  By the end, when there is no political guarantee, a dozen ethnic armed groups again oppose the,  now new, USDP (Union Solidarity and Development Party) government.  When the new civil war breaks out the ethnic people in all of the border regions will face more suffering through displacement and migration from their homes.

Yet, ethnic people have always been expecting national reconciliation because they want to stay at their homes safely and work in their farms without harm.  If Daw Aung San Suu Kyi can bring peace and reconciliation, then change for all of the people will really happen.

Thailand:Migrant Worker with temporary passport arrested twice

Monday, 29 November 2010 00:00

A female worker, who is about age 50 and holds a temporary passport, was arrested twice within a few hours by the police in Mae Sot.

Daw Htay, the arrested woman, works at the Daycha Phanit fishing-net factory, Khon Kaen, on the Thai-Lao border. She heard that her mother who was living in Swelay village, Beelin Township, Mon state of Burma had passed away. She was travelling home to attend her mother’s funeral ceremony but was arrested on her way.

Daw Htay was arrested near the Mae Tao clinic when she arrived in Mae Sot and had to pay the police 400 baht for her release. Then she was arrested again when she went to the immigration office to apply for a re-entry visa. She was sent to jail. Daw Htay explained that she was arrested because she had no work permit.

“I planned my trip quickly when I heard that my mom passed away. Everything was fine on my way and nothing happened when I entered Mae Sot. I came to stay with the younger brother of my husband who lives in Mae Sot. I showed my temporary passport but they still arrested me because I have no work permit. I had to pay 400 baht. Then I came to the Immigration office and they didn’t accept my explanation. They arrested me and brought me by car to a 2-story jail.”

“I was in shock. I had the phone number for BAT, the organization that came from Bangkok last month to solve the serious temporary passport problem that took place at our factory and called them for help. Soon after, Ko Htet Kaung from Arakan Worker Action group in Mae Sot came to see me. I again needed to pay 500 Baht at the Mae Sot jail. I have much less money now because I had to pay 900 baht to the Mae Sot police. Anyway, thank you to all who helped me” she added.

Ko Htet Kaung who went to assist her, explained that “I received a call from U Kyaw Thaing, my work partner. I quickly left to assess the situation and it was really disappointing. I would like to say that Thai authorities have to stop doing whatever they want to workers who already have temporary passports. Instead of seeing the worker as a worker, the police may be seeing a kind of animal whose meat is tasty.”

It has been announced that those with temporary passports made in accordance with the joint agreement between the Burmese and Thai governments are eligible to travel freely in Thailand.

Burma off Security Council agenda-again China….

UNITED NATIONS, December 2 — While military ruled Myanmar was on the November agenda of the UN Security Council, albeit in a footnote, it was removed from the agenda for December, during which the United States has the Council Presidency.

Early on December 2, Inner City Press was told that China had opposed the inclusion of Myanmar in the Program of Work, even as a footnote. It was agreed that, without giving the session a name, UN envoy Vijay Nambiar will brief the Council on his Thanksgiving weekend visit to the country on the afternoon of December 6, under “Any Other Business,” the Council’s catch-all phrase.

When US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice came to brief the press on the month’s agenda at 1 pm, the Program of Work distributed to journalist had in the footnotes between “Non-proliferation” and Somalia a blank spot, the length of the word “Myanmar.”

But on December 6, the Program listed only the tribunals for Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia. Inner City Press asked Ambassador Rice along with questions on Sudan to confirm that there would in fact be a briefing on December 6, and whether the obviously deleted footnote had been Myanmar.

Ambassador Rice said that yes, Mister Nambiar will brief on December 6, and said that her copy of the Program of Work reflected that. She did not explain the missing footnote. Q&A here, from Minute 16:04.
