Event: 51st Anniversary Kachin Revolution Day - UK

Dear Sir or Madam,

We, the Kachin National Organization - UK, are honoured to invite you to the 51st anniversary of “Kachin Revolution Day” ceremony.

It is well known fact that “the Union of Burma” came into existence after the signing of “panglong’s agreement” between the ethnic’s minority brethren and the Burman majority led by General Aung San.  We, the Kachin voluntarily took part as signatory in the panglong conference with a view that democracy, justice, equality and self-autonomy would be guaranteed through the panglong treaty so that the newly formed “Union of Burma” prospers in peace and harmony. 

Following the independence, however, during U Nu-led parliamentary era based on the unitary centrally planned government: no political space is given to the ethnic minorities to exercise their political right contrary to essence of Panglong.  In addition, the discriminations, suppression, injustice and many forms of abuses were perpetuated against the ethnic minorities due to the Burman extreme nationalists, and its doctrine of Burmanization.  Under these circumstances, the political impasse between the Kachin and the central government became impossible to solve through meaningful dialogue.  Therefore, the KIO/KIA was established and took its armed struggle on the 5th of February 1961. 

The last five decades have seen our leaders and revolutionary fighters confronting the hardships, miseries and various forms of challenges in the pursuit of peace and freedom. The sacrifices have been made and their lives have fallen.  However, our revolutionary spirit would never come to an end.  In fact, the emergence of future new generations is to continue its journey of restoring freedom and self-determination.  

We, the Kachin National Organization, would like to request of your presence in the ceremony of the Kachin Revolution Day to share our common struggle for freedom and equal right in solidarity.  

We look forward to seeing you.

Sincerely yours,

Kachin National Organization- UK

ငါသာလွ်င္ေတာ္ သူမေတာ္ရ
လူေတာ္ထင္မွာ တို႔ျမန္မာကို

ၾကြားရင္းႏွင့္နစ္ ဝါးရင္းနစ္သည့္

အေကာင္းဆိုးထင္ ဆိုးေကာင္းထင္ႏွင့္
အထင္လြဲပါ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ ရမည္လည္း

သူ႔ကိုငါညွိဳး ငါ့သူညွိဳးႏွင့္
အညွိဳးႀကီးပါ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ ရမည္လည္း

ၿငီး၍မၿပီး ညဴမၿပီးဘူး
အၿပီးတကာ လုပ္ႏုိင္ပါမွ
ေတာ္ရာေရာက္လိမ့္ ေနာင္အဖို႔
ႏိုးၾကထၾကျမန္မာတို႔ သားေျမးတို႔အတြက္ ႀကိဳးပမ္းစို႔
