If Burma’s military junta, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) doesn’t respond to the National League for Democracy (NLD) call for urgent actions to help the country, public movements must be carried out, the renowned Burmese author Ludhu Daw Ama said.
91-year old veteran journalist and author Ludhu Daw Ama stated that the SPDC government’s failure to respond to the call for the formation of a people parliament in order to solve the existing political problem of Burma shows that the junta is unable to find a way out of the political stalemate.
â€œThe NLD is calling for a way out (of the political stalemate). Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is calling for a way out. Nothing happened. They (the ruling generals) are not taking a way out. Whatever way out you show them they won’t take it. Nothing happened at their Nyaung-Hnapin (National Convention). If you stay on like this, nothing will happen,â€ said Ama.
By looking at the way the SPDC government repeatedly ignore the calls of the NLD, a solution could only be found with a public uprising, Ama added.
â€œOur country tends to explode from unexpected places. Only then would the camp be dismantled. That’s what I think. I think that we have to explode,â€ said Ama from her home in central Burma’s Mandalay. â€œYou can’t just despair, my sons (children). You have to do something. We have to find a way by public (movement) means to do things needed to be done. If you don’t do that nothing will happen. They will go on like that.â€
