Message from Speaker of Amyotha Hluttaw to the commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of 8888 Uprising


I am proud and delighted to send this message to the commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of 8888 Uprising, which falls on 8 August, 2018.

As a result of the 8888 Uprising, the country left behind the one-party system and moved towards a multi-party democracy system, and Myanmar is now on the road to a new democratic nation.

Myanmar’s political generation which had disappeared for many years in Myanmar is now reborn and the 8888 Uprising has become the biggest movement for democracy in Myanmar.

For gaining the peace in the Union and for emergence of a democratic federal Union aspired to by the people for many decades, commitment shall be made to march to our ultimate goal with the collective strength and joining our hands firmly through the obstacles, challenges and conflicts we are facing today.

I make a wish that from the 30th Anniversary of the 8888 Uprising, every citizen takes part, as much as they can, in building a future democratic federal Union while paying heed to the national solidarity and national reconciliation.
