11th anniversary of '96 uprising

11 years ago on this day, we started the fight against the injustice by taking to the streets.
11 years ago tomorrow (3rd December), the junta started the crackdown on us by beating and arresting.
11 years ago this month, streets were filled with demonstrating students and crushing troops.
11 years ago, we lost the battle to free Burma from dictatorship.

But the fight continues. Our burning desire to achieve freedom continues. So many of us has ran away. So many of us has spent time behind bars for years. So many of us are still fighting.....

We had failed. We might have failed. But we will fight till we die.

In memory of 96 uprising and in honour of who risk their lives for the cause of better Burma.
