[Epoch Times February 22, 2021](Epoch Times reporter Xu Xiuhui reported in Los Angeles) On the morning of February 20th, nearly 400 Burmese immigrants shouted in front of the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles: “We want democracy” and “The CCP stops aid The Burmese military government” accused the CCP of exporting violent revolutions and authoritarian totalitarianism, including Vietnamese and Cambodian immigrants, and overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia. They also called for international attention to the issue of democracy in Myanmar and stop the persecution of human rights and freedom.
The Los Angeles Visual Artists Association also launched a team to support the team. At 11 am that day, more than a dozen cars departed from Los Angeles State Historic Park near Chinatown and marched to the Chinese consulate to meet with the Myanmar protesters.
Since the Myanmar military launched a coup on February 1 and arrested Aung San Suu Kyi, the Counselor of State of Myanmar (Aung San Suu Kyi), President Win Myint, and the leader of the ruling National League for Democracy, the Myanmar military announced that the country has entered a one-year period. The state of emergency has caused hundreds of thousands of Burmese people to take to the streets to protest. So far, nearly 500 people have been arrested. Six celebrities who called for a strike and paralyzed government departments are also wanted by the military.
Spiriton Lee, a Burmese immigrant who immigrated to the United States with his father and his family in 1975, said that democracy in Myanmar cannot be regressed and the rights of the people cannot be deprived. She said: “We love our country, but we have to leave. The authoritarian government has taken everything from us. Our entire generation, and future generations, have no future.”
In 2010, Myanmar carried out democratization reforms and ended the era of military government rule. Myanmar is also gradually developing its economy. Now the Myanmar military is using a violent revolution to seize power again. Li Tingting is very worried. She said: “This is not only a crisis of human rights in Myanmar, but also The crisis of international democracies, dictatorship and authoritarian regimes are disrupting the world order.”
Ask the CCP to stop assisting the Myanmar military
Li Tingting asked the CCP to stop supporting Myanmar’s military government. She said: “The situation in Myanmar is very serious now. We need the help of democratic countries and at the same time ask the CCP to stop assisting the military.”
According to a report by the Myanmar citizen group Justice for Myanmar, of the 16 foreign companies that supply conventional weapons and related items to the Myanmar National Defense Forces, five are from the CCP.
The protesters in front of the Chinese consulate held up Chinese slogans: “The black hands of the CCP get out of Myanmar”, “The People’s Revolutionary CCP gets out”, “Where is the justice of Myanmar? Restore the democratically elected government”, and strongly demanded that the CCP stop interfering in Myanmar’s democratic internal affairs; The people held a portrait of Min Aung Lai, the “puppet” of the Burmese military government controlled by the CCP leader. The slogans read “Help the people, don’t help the coup army” and “The CCP stops providing arms.”
Suspected that the CCP helped the Myanmar military government block the Internet
Khin, who was born in Myanmar and immigrated to the United States at the age of 18, said that the military government’s actions to suppress ordinary people were unscrupulous, and many innocent people were beaten and even lost their lives in the street demonstrations. She also questioned the CCP’s assistance to the Myanmar military government to block the Internet and demanded the CCP. The dispatched technicians and equipment left Myanmar. Khin said: “My family is in the United States, but I am very worried about my friends in Myanmar.” She hopes that the international community will hear the voice of the Burmese people and not tolerate the dictatorship of the military government and oppress the people.
Liu Yaya, president of the Los Angeles Visual Artists Association, said: “As a member of the United Nations, China should support the resolutions of the United Nations and jointly condemn the military coup in Myanmar.” Because democracy and freedom are common values that people seek, the people of Myanmar have the right to speak for themselves.
Strictly prevent the CCP from fostering a puppet regime
Zhang Ziyun, a new Chinese immigrant who participated in the convoy parade, said: “The CCP not only harms its own country, but also engages in revolutionary export. Burma’s coup d’etat and seizure of democratic power are completely copying the Soviet model.”
He believes that whether the CCP is behind the coup or not, all democratic countries in the world should strictly guard against the rise of dictatorships and dictatorships, because according to the logic of the CCP: “one bandit and three gangs”, bandits can also achieve great cause by working together. Western democracy The country must strictly prevent the CCP from fostering a puppet regime and cultivating its own little brother. The interconnection of these totalitarian countries will cause international influence and become a big problem.
Liu Yuan, a new immigrant from the mainland who supports Myanmar and supports democracy and freedom, said: “In order to achieve its goals, the CCP exported violent revolutions to the world, and it has used polar penetration in the world.” Although the US government has already condemned the military coup in Myanmar, But the intensity is far from enough.
Liu Yuan was interviewed by overseas media in front of the California state government office building. At that time, he bluntly stated that the CCP is a dictatorship. Soon after, his mother who was still in his hometown in Sichuan was questioned by the CCP police. This made Liu Yuan aware of the CCP’s control of overseas Chinese and even Will threaten the safety of relatives and friends.
He said: “The US government is the vanguard of democracy and should play a role to let these dictatorships move toward a democratic path.” So in solidarity with Myanmar’s activities, it also urges the United States to guard against the CCP. He also hopes that one day the Chinese can move towards democracy.
