Episode Description:

On September 18th, co-Oak Fellows, Maung Maung Than and Mya Nandar Aung addressed a full house in the Lunder Room, Diamond Building at Colby College in Waterville. They spoke of the military coup that occurred in 1962. The military has been in power, ever since. Maung Maung Than will give a brief outline of Burmese geography and history. Mya Nandar Aung will tell her personal story of persecution and torture by the military junta. In recent days, the corporate media has played up events happening in Syria. The drums of war have been beating incessantly. Yet, very little has been said about a genocide that's been going on in Burma for over 50 years. As it happens, I was in Rangoon, Burma with the Swedish merchant marine in 1962. I witnessed some of the arrests happening on the streets of Rangoon. People just being swept up. When I tried to talk to the Burma people, they looked fearfully around. They were worried that the military might hear them and they, too, would be disappeared.
