Student Leader Escapes Junta With Help From The People

Source: Democratic Voice of Burma

One of the student leaders from All Burma Students’ Union, Ko Kyaw Ko Ko, told DVB that he was grateful to the people for helping him escape the clutches of Junta.

On the 9th of October, the authorities had tried to snatch him from a house in Rangoon where he was hiding, but he managed to get away, thanks to the sympathetic public. He told DVB:

“Everyone I met along the way has been very kind, and without their help, I would not have made it to safety.”

He added that while many of the students and student leaders are under detention, ABSU will continue the legacy and carry on the fight for democracy.

“As long as there are students, there is a student union. We’re regrouping now, working to get everyone together.”
