|The old man confronting ASSK the Nobel laureate.|
ASSK has been actively persuading and prodding her supporters to come out onto the streets of major cities and towns to protest against following Clause-436 of Burma’s 2008 Constitution’s on 8-8-14 the 26th anniversary of that failed 8-8-88 Uprising.
“436. (a) If it is necessary to amend the provisions of Sections 1 to 48 in Chapter I, Sections 49 to 56 in Chapter II, Sections 59 and 60 in Chapter III, Sections 74, 109, 141 and 161 in Chapter IV, Sections 200, 201, 248 and 276 in Chapter V, Sections 293, 294, 305, 314 and 320 in Chapter VI, Sections 410 to 432 in Chapter XI and Sections 436 in Chapter XII of this Constitution, it shall be amended with the prior approval of more than seventy-five percent of all the representatives of the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (Uniuon Parliament), after which in a nation-wide referendum only with the votes of more than half of those who are eligible to vote.
She desperately wants to water down those strict conditions required to amend the constitution so that she could later amend the following Clause 59-F of the same 2008 Constitution once she has some majority in the parliament after 2015 general elections.
“59. Qualifications of the President and Vice-Presidents are as follows:
Recently she has been on road all over Burma’s heartland for that purpose of mobilizing her supporters. But so many other Burmese people especially the Buddhist-Nationalists are up-in-arms against her demands and they let her know their disappointment by counter-protesting at her public meetings and also at her vehicular convoy on the roads between towns.
On June-1 one ugly encounter occurred at the small town of Tart-Kone between Pyinmanar and Lel-way towns in Middle Burma during such anti-ASSK protest. A 76-year-old Burmese man and a nationalist-patriot named San Lwin had challenged her verbally and the video in Burmese of that ugly encounter is below for your viewing and my English translation of part of the script for non-Burmese follows.
(ASSK, the Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, was still nicely sitting inside her luxury air-conditioned-SUV and the old man 76-year-old U San Lwin was standing on his tired feet on the roadside as he’d been waiting for her for many hours in hot midday sun.)
ASSK: Come, come, come here. Why don’t you want to change (the Act-436)?
ASSK: I don’t ask people out onto the streets.
ASSK: Of course, I’m following the laws. All the stuff (the public meetings) we’re doing is legally permitted. We are working inside the frame of laws.
ASSK: We aren’t doing that. They have their rights to come (and protest on the streets).
ASSK: I didn’t force them. They have rights to protest.
ASSK: Okay, is someone (among her minders) recording this?
ASSK: So that’s right. Who do you think established Tatmadaw (Burma Army) and when?
ASSK: Okay, if Thirty Comrades started the army, who do you think led the Thirty Comrades?
ASSK: So your father was killed by Fascist Japanese. If that so, the Thirty Comrades must be responsible for your father’s death too?
ASSK: So the whole Tatmadaw (Burma Army) was responsible (for your father’s death).
ASSK: When I said nothing to do with Tatmadaw meant that except my father the rest (Thirty Comrades and other Thakhins) had nothing to do with establishing the Tatmadaw. My father alone had started the Tatmadaw. So Tatmadaw is not supposed to continue taking responsibility (politically of our country).
ASSK: So what?
ASSK: Yes I know, so why?
ASSK: So may I ask who is responsible to stabilize our country?
ASSK: Oh, am I the Government now?
ASSK: Yes, that’s right.
ASSK: So say it. Government has no duty (to keep our country peaceful and stable).
ASSK: You first answer what I’m asking. Doesn’t the government have a duty?
ASSK: You’re saying that keeping this country peaceful and stable is not government’s duty. I believe government only has that duty.
ASSK: Yes I do follow the law.
ASSK: You could have refused to come when I called you. You could still stand over there.
ASSK: You can say whatever you want. But I still believe government is responsible (for democracy and stability).
After few more minutes angrily arguing with San Lwin the old man and a patriot ASSK abruptly ordered her driver to drive off and angrily disappeared into the sunset.
NLD Trying to Discredit the Old Man
After the confrontation video went viral on You Tube NLD personnel together with the reporters of various donor-stooge media organizations such as DVB and RFA went to Tart Kone and dug up the old man San Lwin’s background and released them all over internet.
They released the details that Old Man’s NRC (National Registration Card) is 9/Ta-ka-na (Naing) 024856 and he is living with his family at North Pone Hnyat Street in Quarter-6 of Myawaddy Ward in Tart-Kone Town.
They also released that Old Man was once a hardcore member of Ma-sa-la (BSPP - now defunct Burma Socialist Programme Party) and the powerful Chairman of Township Paddy Purchase Committee.
