大俠行天下日記 我見我聞我思 10/28
當拜登總統本週通過視頻參加東南亞國家公約會議, 這是四年來美國總统首次參加的重要國際會議, 而在緬甸首都被囚禁九個月之久的翁山蘇姬正在接受軍方法庭之審判, 指控她貪汚煽動民眾及控制新冠疫情不力, 如果她的罪名成立,將被判百年囚禁, 也是變相要她死在獄中。
緬甸軍方自一九六二年統治長達近六十年之久， 翁山蘇姬曾於一九九O年及2010 年兩度高票當選帶領她的政黨蠃得選舉， 這項民主進展嚴重威脅軍方勢力， 因而让他們再次發動政變把反動人派統统抓起來， 並已造成一千多人死亡及九千人被捕。
緬甸是東南亞最富裕的國家之一，除了每年可收二到三季的稻米糧田之外， 並儲存大量石油、 金礦 、其中以玉石 、寶石為世界之冠。
我和家人早年曾經生活在這塊佛教聖地， 孩童時代每天清晨都看到各個年齡層次之尼姑和小和尚沿途化緣， 並敲打着小鈴鐺， 提醒眾人送上食物水果， 每當回憶起當年之情境 ，深感這個篤信佛教及溫順之緬甸民族 ，在軍人之欺壓下， 國家民生凋零 ，淪為世界最窮的國家之一。
諷刺的是 ，東盟及世界各國對於翁山蘇姬也無能為力 ，只有眼看這位民主鬥士逐漸凋零， 我們每天高談民主、 自由， 面對現實 ，真是雙重標準。
Myanmar’s Leader Appeared In Court
After eight months of being detained by the military regime, the leader of Myanmar’s ousted civilian government Aung San Suu Kyi was in a closed door court and was charged for inciting public unrest and breaching coronavirus regulations. No diplomats or journalists were allowed in the court. If she is convicted, she could be sentenced to jail for 100 years.
This hearing came as U.S. President Biden plans to attend a virtual summit with the ASEAN countries. This is the first time in four years that a U.S. president will attend the meeting. The head of Myanmar’s junta was excluded from the meeting which will focus on the crisis in Myanmar.
Almost 1,200 people have been killed by the military forces in Myanmar since the coup and nearly 9,000 have been arrested.
The situation in Myanmar is very sad and we really don’t see anything the outside world can do for this poor country.
My family and I spent our early life in Myanmar when I was a kid. Every morning we saw a group of monks pass by in front of our house and ask for food. Most of the people are Buddhists and they are very peaceful people.
Myanmar is a country that is very rich in natural resources. More than 100 ethnic groups live in the country. They have numerous parks and lakes and thousands of colorful pagodas which contain Buddhist relics that date back to the 6th century.
We urge the world to come to the rescue of the suffering people of Myanmar. They have been under military rule there for almost sixty years.
