Let’s start a campaign to kick out Than Shwe
and his thugs
Let’s start a campaign to kick out Than Shwe and his thugs bu showing our hatred and disapproval to them and reveal to the world that Myanmar Tatmadaw is the illegal ruler of our country, Burma.
Showing our hatred to SPDC and cohorts is another step forward for us from the ineffective nonviolent civil disobedience campaign.
We must start the campaign by brainwashing all the people with a propaganda barrage that it is disgraceful to be associated with the SPDC Junta and its affiliated groups that disguised as civilians. Myanmar/Burma needs self consciences people that hate this cruel military government.
We all have an obligation to devote our life to fighting for justice and the present time of SPDC shouting the victory success as if more then 92% of us had supported them and as if it has effectively nullify the 1990 NLD’s election win. We all have a responsibility not to give those injustices our practical support by keeping quiet, remained submissive, obedient, loyal and subservient.
Philosopher-cum-thinker John Saul in his book, ‘The Unconscious Civilization’ wrote:
“Conformism, loyalty and silence are so admired and rewarded.” Yes those keep quiet could be rewarded for their well behaviour or decorum. They could get some left-overs after the SPDC Cohorts’ big feast. Hatred in our heart and mind is not very effective although it is better than loving to cooperate as the collaborators hoping to get a chance to lick the left over bones!
Nowadays the popular saying is “To walk the talk” but I hereby wish to state that
- “We need to walk our THOUGHTS”.
- We are already talking about starting a civil disobedience or to start a revolution.
- We should plan and consider various methods as a “diversity of tactics”.
- To be effective, tactics must be carefully chosen, taking into account SPDC and Burmese political and cultural circumstances, and we need to plan different tactical approaches as part of a larger plan or strategy to overthrown them.
Nonviolence civil disobedience is good during the colonial days but it tends to give very slow results or used to achieve political changes much later only. And we all know that Colonial Masters were gentlemen, respect the Human Rights and there was the Rule of Law then.
But the present Than Shwe led SPDC thugs are inhumane, never respect Human Rights and they rule by the law of jungle. They even fail to observe the International Law of engagement, in the Ethnic Minority areas, which is the guiding principle of each and every war. For the SPDC, might is always right and power and law come out from the barrel of the gun only. Worse of all is even that the law of the jungle coming out of the SPDC guns are ever changing according to their whims and fancies.
- During times of war, hatred becomes quite respectable, even though it has to masquerade often under the guise of patriotism. (Howard Thurman)
- Without something to hate, we should lose the very spring of thought and action. (William Hazlitt)
- Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. (H. Jackson Browne)
- Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. (Helen Keller)
- With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity. (Keshavan Nair)
So I hereby wish to propose one method of civil disobedience to show our hatred to the SPDC and cohorts. This is defined as material defiance under nonviolence civil disobedience.
A. Target the following persons and properties:
1. SPDC army vehicles.
2. Police cars.
3. Kyant Phut and SPDC Government affiliated organizations’ vehicles.
4. SPDC propaganda sign boards around the country.
B. What to do? Try to vandalize or deface or spoil or ruin or damage or dent or scratch or disfigure or mutilate or graze or sabotage them by any of the following means.
1. Throw dirty water or mud.
2. Throw old engine oil.
3. Throw animal blood.
4. Throw eggs, better if rotten.
5. Throw tomato, better if rotten.
6. Not very nice to write but if dare to do, throw waste or organic waste or even shits packages or urine packages.
C. Those who are brave enough, target any SPDC soldier, police, Kyant Phut or their relatives and do the above acts.
You can do it in the markets, on the roads in the town or on the rural roads or while they are guarding at the gate posts.
There may be some revenge mass punishments on the people around that area but those sabotaging acts of hatred may start the circle of hatred.
Their ammunition and firing power is too big to fight one by one as noble Knights.
At least they may know that we, most of the citizens hate them and are against them.
No need to be ashamed. Anyone doing these is not cowards. We all would regard those acts as very brave acts against the very powerful enemy.
- There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. (Anais Nin)
- So we all citizens of Burma should not just quietly let the iron grip of SPDC squeeze and crush us.
- Let free the democracy to blossom with our safe civil disobedience struggle. Now SPDC is attacking relentlessly on NLD and Ethnic Minorities.
“The best defence is attack”. That was a very popular saying in football. Our best defence for now is to attack back. These SPDC thugs are very brave to attack Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and NLD because they are strictly adhering to their non-violence methods.
- One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. (Andre Gide)
- Non-poisonous snakes are not even respected by the children. If we are weak, we are always exposed to the exploitations of the bullies and thuds. See what SPDC and Kyant Phuts are doing on NLD leaders including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. We have to prepare and strengthen our-selves physically, intellectually, economically, socially, mentally, spiritually etc.
- We must always hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
- Victory is for those dare to try again and again. Perseverance is the key-word for success.
Actually power comes from within.
- If we all have confidence, self respect, and if strongly believe that we are not a simple weak person, but we are brave willing to work hard and ready to sacrifice, one day will surely progress, there is definitely a very bright future of crowning with the success.
- Inner spiritual strength is more important and always guides the outer physical power.
- Even if we are weak physically, inner spiritual and mental strength and power will guide, train and convert it to become powerful.
If you think my plan is some form of violence and could not accept, just read this great Philosopher’s thoughts:
- “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.” (George Bernard Shaw)
- The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. (Charles DuBois)
- We must take some risk to get to our destination of Democratic Secular Federal Union of Burma.
