Sixty-two years since July 7, 1962: A memorial for the anniversary

The 62nd anniversary of the July 7, 1962 memorial was held at the Sanimthoon Community Cafe in Chiang Mai, Thailand on July 7. It was organized by the Chiang Mai Burmese Students Network and the General Strike Committee (GSC).

“We must keep up the July 7 spirit for [our resistance to] the military dictatorship because we want to build a new nation. This is why we are currently resisting the military dictatorship in various ways. Not only through armed struggle but also through the civil resistance movement,” an event organizer told DVB on the condition of anonymity.

The July 7 commemorative event featured a screening of the documentary film “7.7.62 Don’t Forget.” It also featured photographs, performance art and poetry, as well as a fundraiser for the All Burma Federation of Students Unions (ABFSU).
