RAKHINE STATE- The Arakan Liberation Party (ALP) announced on Thursday (October 12) that it condemned the junta council’s 8th anniversary of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) which no longer has the essence and stood together with the oppressed people to work together in this revolutionary movement to end the junta dictatorship.
ALP issued a statement on the junta council’s attack on the Munglai Hkyet IDP camp and concludes its opinion regarding the 8th anniversary of the NCA, which would be on October 15.
The ALP strongly condemned the junta council’s attack on Munglai Hkyet Camp on the night of October 9, in which nearly 30 people were killed and more than 50 were injured.
ALP expressed its condolence for the surviving family members and the Kachin people who have suffered.
The junta council has been committing similar attacks like the Munglai Hkyet incident, violating human rights and killing innocent civilians including children and women all over the country. They, on the other hand, are preparing to commemorate the 8th anniversary of the NCA which no longer holds its meaning. These acts of trying to suppress and divide the internal resistance forces (by brutal bombing) and trying to get international recognition by holding the anniversary of NCA are two polar opposite acts the military is trying to achieve, stated the ALP.
International organizations should condemn and take proper legal action on the military brutal acts and human rights violations as soon as possible, urges the ALP.
The ALP is one of the ethnic armed groups that signed the NCA. After the coup d’état by the barbaric terrorist council, there were disagreements among the leaders and the party split among the former vice president Ms. Saw Mya Yazar Lin and her fellows who agreed to cooperate with the junta council, and the current chairman Mr. Khaing Ye Khaing who did not accept the military coup. ALP also announced that the former president no longer represents the party and any agreement or discussion made by her has no association with the party.
