USDA start hate campaign against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi

November 17, 2007

The Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA) has begun to spread canards about Daw Aung San Suu Kyi among villagers in different townships in Mon state.
The USDA has briefed its members to tell the people that though Daw Suu was given many honours, she never did anything for the cause of development for the people in the Burma . Whatever has been done in terms of development has been done by the State Peace and Development Council such as building bridges, roads, and other development works.The junta backed USDA campaign aims to ensure that there is no support for Daw Suu from among the people if demonstrations take place again in the future.A source close to the USDA member, said they (USDA) speak ill of Daw Suu to distance her from the people. The members were told to tell the people about the optimism the SPDC is generating.However a Moulmein resident in Mon State said “They (SPDC) have done nothing for the people. If they actually worked for the people, they (people) would not have any trouble.”“Why didn’t they build roads and bridges in Chaungzone Township , Mon State ? They do things for their own benefit. That’s why there is no hope for thepeople. They are only interested in the business run by the Burma Army, he said.

USDA began their campaign in Kyaikmayaw Township on November 10 and are continuing their campaign in other townships, he added.SPDC chairman, Senior General Than Shwe has urged the USDA to join hands with the people in carrying out the seven step road map to “disciplined democracy” and in building a new state, according to The New Light ofMyanmar controlled by the military regime. USDA has 29 million members and was formed in 1993, according to The New Light of Myanmar.
