 Download flyer

To commemorate the 2015 Burma Human Rights Day, you are cordially invited to join a round table discussion with activists, organizations and community members to discuss our views on the situation in Burma and how we can continue to support positive changes there.  

Sunday March 22nd, 2015; 12 pm to 4 pm
Union City Public Library

34007 Alvarado-Niles Rd, Union City, CA, (510) 745-1464
(Social & Moht-Hin-Ga Lunch 12-1pm; Discussion and Q&A 1-4pm)

With the election less than eight months away, so much is going on in Burma. Among other things, a new generation of student protesters is emerging and fighting to change the unjust education laws. The government has now begun to crack down on them as they have done to the garment workers, farmers (land-grab victims) and media.

The round table discussion is to be moderated for effectiveness, and the key topics of the discussion are (but not limited to): Reforms, constitutional amendments, 2015 elections, peace and reconciliation, protests, land grabs, and the current human rights situation.

Organized by Burmese American Democratic Alliance (BADA); co-sponsored by Burmese American Women’s Alliance (BAWA) & Community Organizations, www.badasf.org, 510-520-8675, 510-220 1323 Read More

Burma is going through its most challenging time as reforms are taking place while the 2015 Election is only a year away. Through the country seems to be changing, the people's livelihood is no better and they are as always struggling for their daily survival. There are paramount concerns with slow pace of reforms and peace process, wide-spread land-grabs, continued human rights abuses, cronyism, uncertainty with amending the Sham constitution and the ultimate outcome of the 2015 elections.


Though Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is pushing hard for the constitution amendment, it is going no where and we may all end up legalizing the military rule further as the constitution is designed to do and the international community might just give up to pressure further after 2015 elections. Therefore, now is the most crucial time for Burma and her people and come join us to learn about how you can help for the better there.
