NMSP vows to keep fighting against military dictatoreship through armed revolution


Ye Chaung Phyar, 1 September

The New Mon State Party (NMSP) declared on the 76th Mon Revolution Day that it will continue to oppose military dictatorship through armed revolution until national liberation is achieved.

The New Mon State Party, the veteran Mon ethnic force, stated in their statement that their party is independent, placing the strength of the Mon people first for national development.

The New Mon State Party has expressed that it will deal with any force and organization as a party in order to create a complete destiny for the national interest and the construction of a true federal union.

In addition, the statement said that the NMSP will focus on strengthening the party, the army, and the region; protecting the civilians, building national unity; and working for national progress during the current political turning point.

In response to this declaration, Dr. Thiri Mon Chan, Chairman of the Military and Political Steering Committee of the Mon State Defense Force (MSDF), believes that the NMSP will not be able to engage in armed conflict with the military council in the future.

The New Mon State Party said that amid the internal conflict and ongoing violence, the current political discussion cannot solve the country’s problems, and there is little sign of peace in the country.

On the other hand, the NMSP also informed that it will work together with the ethnic groups to solve the political problem in a meaningful political way.

Dr. Thiri Mon Chan said, “We need to be clear now, and various military dictatorships cannot be solved by political means. Because the junta took power in 1962 under General Ne Win. Also, it is this junta army that is causing difficulties in the 1988 People’s Movement and in the main roles”.

The New Mon State Party has called for the whole nation to continue fighting together with ethnic allies, domestic and foreign democratic groups, with strong spirit, perseverance, and unity because only the liberation of the Mon is not yet a destiny, but the revolutionary responsibilities will continue to be carried out.

The 76th Mon Revolution Day was held in some areas where ethnic groups live, including NMSP-controlled areas, with the slogan “National rights will emerge only through the powerful revolution”.
