Myanmar hero to grace global day of prayer
An iconic figure in the Myanmar resistance movement, U Tin Oo, will speak in London tomorrow (March 9) as part of a Global Day of Prayer for Burma.
U Tin Oo, 86, was commander of the army before he was forced to retire by the dictator Ne Win in 1976 and jailed the following year.
Released under a general amnesty in 1980, he was joint founder of the National League for Democracy (NLD) along with Aung San Suu Kyi in 1988. He remains the party’s patron.
Representatives of the Kachin and Rohingya communities will also be on the platform at the Emmanuel Centre in Westminster for the event, hosted by Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).
It is one of many to be held worldwide this weekend.
