Protest against Chinese Intervention in our Internal Affairs

Posted by Admin Monday, October 3, 2011
Today, Kachin language is not recognized as an official language in
Kachinland. Our children are forbidden to learn our own language, our
culture, or our heritage in our own State's institutions. Myitkyina
University's west lawn is littered with discarded illicit drug bottles and
bathroom walls are adorned with syringe bins. Our graduates are yearly
denied from entering government's workforce. Our churches have no official
permission to congregate. Our lands are forcibly confiscated and
transferred to the government cronies. The current scale of destruction
surpasses the misery we endured during the Japanese colonial era. In WWII,
Kachin Rangers collaborated with Gen. Chiang Kai-shek's army to expel
Fascist out of China and Burma. Unfortunately, fascism still remains in
Burma and this "Destructive Element" continues to terrorize its own 62
million citizens and searches for political resolution through the barrel of
a gun since 1962.

Six score and four years ago, Gen. Aung San lobbied Kachin national
leaders along with leaders from other national races to petition for
Independence in Unison. He promised our ethnic leaders with creation of a
genuine Federal Union and equal political rights for all. Pang Long
agreement was signed by four national races in 1947; hence the name the
Union of Burma was coined for the new republic.

In 2010, newly self appointed government was propped up to further
marginalize and oppress the minorities. We, Kachins, Shans, Karen, Chins,
are becoming second class citizens in our land. And, current Chinese
government's support of this authoritarian government only allows them to
suppress its own people in perpetuity. Therefore, we call upon Chinese,
Burmese, and international community to UNITE and PROTEST against this
tyrannical regime in any PEACEFUL means.

We demand China to:
1) Stop supporting the fascist government in Burma
2) Halt investment in Burma until the return of transparent and
accountable government
3) Engage with the ethnic opposition group
4) Open the border gates and help its western neighbors
