Review on the Flawed Election

[…] A review of the 2010 elections and the flawed results by 10 activist organizations inside Burma. The organizations conclude that the military system will continue to prevail in Burma because the post-election parliament will be dominated by the military and the junta-backed USDP.

Don’t legitimize Burma’s elections

By Ashin Issariya

The government that emerges after Nov. 7 will be no less corrupt and unlawful than the present one.All actions are based on intentions. For instance, the goal of monks is to bring peace and kindness to the people, and so Burmese trust their actions.

When Burma’s monks marched through the streets in 2007, we did so because we saw the pain of the people, and knew we had to respond. People have suffered needlessly for many years because of the military system of control and intimidation […]

“Let’s Oppose 2010 Elections Resolutely”

The political forces which are thinking of participating in elections should not gamble
the fate of the country with their dreams.

Our struggle for democracy has already reached its’ 22nd anniversary, if we count from the 8888 nation-wide pro-democracy uprising. On this anniversary, we again recognize that it was the nation-wide uprising, not the parliamentary debate that abolished the Burma Socialist Programme Party dictatorial regime of Bo Ne Win and his 1974 constitution[…]
