ABSDF celebrates its founding and mobilizes democratic forces

The All Burma Students’ Democratic Front (ABSDF) stated that it has been able to train and mobilize “a new generation of comrades” and is fighting the junta alongside pro-democracy coalition forces in Burma. The ABSDF marked the 34th anniversary of its founding on Nov. 1. It was formed by students who fled to Burma’s borderlands to fight against a previous junta known ominously as the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC). This followed a brutal military crackdown on protests during the country’s 1988 pro-democracy uprising, which led to the establishment of the National League for Democracy (NLD) party led by Aung San Suu Kyi. The ABSDF stated that a total of 764 ABSDF members were killed and 401 were injured over the last three decades of combat against the Burma Army. This figure includes those killed since last year’s coup. Pro-democracy forces including the National Unity Government (NUG), Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP Burma), and General Strike Collaboration Committee (GSCC) congratulated the ABSDF for its continued struggle against tyranny and dictatorship.
