Tin Oo set free, to lead NLD

P. S. Suryanarayana

Octogenarian Tin Oo, now set free by Myanmar’s military rulers, will lead the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD) as long as Nobel Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi remains under house arrest. She has so far spent over 14 years in detention, either at her own residence in Yangon or in prison, during the past two decades.

Ms. Suu Kyi’s political associate and NLD spokesman Nyan Win said over the telephone from Yangon on Sunday Mr. Tin Oo, Vice-Chairman of the NLD, appeared to be “well” upon his release from house arrest on Saturday. He would preside over a meeting of the party’s executive committee on Monday.

There would be “no agenda” for the party panel’s meeting, because the junta had not so far announced a date for the promised democracy-restoring polls, said Mr. Nyan Win. The required election law was not yet in place, either. The NLD did not also agree with the junta that a new Constitution was duly ratified by the people in the referendum held when Myanmar was still reeling under the impact of Cyclone Nargis.

He said there was still no official word on whether and, if so, when Ms. Suu Kyi might be set free. Mr. Tin Oo, a military hero who helped her form the NLD and remained her close lieutenant in the cause of democracy, was denied personal liberty for a number of years. He was now set free, only upon the expiry of his latest term of house arrest, said Mr. Nyan Win.

Our helpful friend, Walt Ratterman, died in Haiti Quake

with one comment

REMEMBERING A FRIEND

By Roland Watson
February 11, 2010

We have to accept a hard truth now: Walt Ratterman, a man who truly dedicated his life to helping people help themselves, passed away in the Haiti earthquake.

Walt was a great friend of the people of Burma, and of many other societies. He was an alternative energy expert, in solar and micro-hydro power. He brought energy systems to people in remote communities, along with training and spare parts so they could maintain the systems once he had left. This simple introduction of a small amount of electricity had a profound impact, lighting schools and clinics, refrigerating medicines, powering computers and communications gear, and for innumerable other uses.

For Burma, Walt was most active in the war zones in the east of the country. His systems provide electricity for over twenty Karen clinics, and for schools in refugee camps and villages. Walt visited the clinics himself, to install the gear, and on one trip he walked all the way to the Karen National Union’s Third Brigade. He generously gave us his photos, which remain on the Dictator Watch site, of the solar installations as well as the internally displaced persons and other victims of Burma’s military regime that he met along the way (photo essays 62, 59, 52, 45 and 31). Walt was also kind enough to support some of our most aggressive efforts to help free Burma.

A few of my memories of Walt are of being called by BBC Burmese for an interview while I was in his room at the Ambassador Hotel in Bangkok; meeting him at the Mawcheet bus station before he left for the border, with a stack of solar panels for cargo, and wondering how he would get them through the checkpoints; at a training he held at the Backpack Medics facility; and at his Pennsylvania farm, which was off grid – self-powered – and where I had the pleasure to meet his wife Jeanne and daughter Briana. I never met his son Shane, although Walt spoke of him with great pride many times.

Walt was warm, but also gruff and no-nonsense. He had work to do and if you could help you were very welcome.  If not, his time was too valuable to waste.

He led a convoy of aid trucks into Northern Afghanistan, immediately after the country was freed. He worked in such places as Rwanda, Haiti, Ecuador, Arunachal Pradesh in northeast India, and Basilan and Mindanao in thesouthern Philippines. As a confirmed travel addict, I used to joke with him that I would be happy to carry his bags if I could accompany him on his trips. He helped a huge number of people, and in the dangerous places that most humanitarians avoid. It is an extraordinary legacy. Would that it could have continued. He will be missed.

Big Kenny’s Friend Walt Ratterman’s Body Discovered In Haiti

    Dissidents want Suu Kyi released before election

    Dissidents want Suu Kyi released before election

    Friday, 29 January 2010 14:22 Myint Maung

    New Delhi (Mizzima) – The release of detained Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi before the 2010 election along with the initiation of a dialogue for national reconciliation is the talk of local political dissidents.

    The response follows a speech by Major General Maung Oo, Minister for Home Affairs, in Kyaukpadaun, Mandalay, on Thursday, saying she would be released in November this year.

    “According to Maj. General Maung Oo who said that the release would happen in November, it means no release before November. We demand they release her before November and to start a dialogue as demanded in our Shwegonedaing Statement. The dialogue is necessary,” Win Tin, one of the leaders of the National League for Democracy (NLD) told Mizzima.

    NLD party representatives issued the Shwegonedaing Statement in late April 2009.

    Win Tin said Burma’s political crisis could be overcome if dialogue between Aung San Suu Kyi and army leader General Than Shwe was commenced. But he also believes there is no chance for dialogue if she is released only after the election.

    Veteran politician Thakin Chan Tun added it would be difficult to consider a fair election if she were released after the fact.

    “It is necessary to release (Daw) Aung San Suu Kyi and allow her to participate in the election as well as to release all political prisoners,” said Thakin Chan Tun.

    “Daw Suu is aware of ethnic affairs. She has had experience in working with ethnic nationalities. She has been a coordinator between ethnic communities and the NLD. Besides, she’s the person who has support from international community. So, if she is released earlier, the international pressure can be reduced,” furthered Win Tin.

    Cho Cho Kyaw Nyein, Secretary General of the United Democratic Party (UDP), shares the same attitude.

    “If Ma Suu (Aung San Suu Kyi) is released tomorrow, I’ll be pleased. If today, I’ll be pleased more. I want all political prisoners to be released. I don’t want them to stay one more day in prison. She has started to offer the Senior General her cooperation. I am aware of the fact that she will cooperate as much as she can for the sake of our nation,” Cho Cho Kyaw Nyein told Mizzima.

    Aung San Suu Kyi previously sent a letter to Burma’s military leader seeking a face-to-face meeting and offering her assistance in the lifting of Western sanctions. To date there has been no positive response to the request.
