A decade back, he founded the Lovely Mind Foundation in Mandalay to give complimentary healthcare services to the bad. He additionally worked as chairman of the Mandalay Area All Burma Federation of Trainees Union.

Though he remains in concealing to avoid apprehension, he spoke on Wednesday with press reporter Soe San Aung from RFA’s Myanmar Solution about the anti-junta demonstrations in Mandalay. The Q&A has actually been edited for size and also clearness.

RFA: What do you consider the authorities announcing a 10 million-kyat benefit for info bring about your apprehension your arrest today?

Tayzar San: In this country, as I comprehend, they are shooting, eliminating, and apprehending whoever they desire. Whether they release an apprehension warrant or otherwise, whether they introduce a benefit or otherwise, they do whatever they want. I have nothing particular to say about the warrant or the reward. I will do whatever I need to do as usual.

RFA: Are you worried concerning being jailed?

Tayzar San: I am doing the very best I can not to get jailed, yet this transformation is something that can not be quit or postponed. I will certainly do what I concern miraculous energy. We will certainly try not to obtain arrested and also not be struck with bullets. However, as I have constantly claimed, we have actually thought of the worst-case circumstance. I will maintain benefiting this transformation as a revolutionary.

RFA: Last week, authorities jailed Wai Moe Naing, a well-know objection leader, who is from Monywa in Sagaing area. Will individuals quit demonstrating versus the military routine once the authorities have detained all the protest leaders?

Tayzar San: Oppose leaders in various cities are obtaining detained, [including] Wai Moe Naing, a colleague of mine. Information of his apprehension created frustration and heartbreak among individuals. I really feel sad that Wai Moe Naing obtained detained, but this change did not emerge because of Wai Moe Naing or Tayzar San. As long as this change lives and also as long as individuals intend to withstand the routine, there will certainly be many Wai Moe Naings and Tayzar Sans. Just because somebody obtains arrested or something occurs, individuals need to not abandon their hopes, political aspirations, and promises. I want to ask for that they keep this transformation entering whichever methods they can. As long as there is a revolution, more and more Wai Moe Naings will certainly arise.

RFA: Are the protests in Mandalay still going on?

Tayzar San: In Mandalay, there are dawn objections, and mid-day as well as evening protests each day. Safety forces, both in uniforms and in plainclothes, have actually been designated to roadway junctions throughout the entire city. They stop individuals, cars, as well as motorcycles for inspection. I listened to that they are examining smart phones which they have actually enhanced safety in recent days.

RFA: How do you handle to still lead the protests despite the fact that you remain in hiding?

Tayzar San: Primarily, I need to see to it which roads or courses are the safest for me to take a trip on prior to I most likely to a [demonstration] site. Due to the fact that I was birthed and raised in Mandalay, I know the roads rather well. I recognize which roads I need to pass to get to an area. During the demonstrations, our precursors inform us when cops as well as soldiers in military trucks are coming. That’s why, recently, they no more utilize the military vehicles when they come. I believe they have found out exactly how we work. The police and soldiers are currently making use of guest vehicles and also motorbikes to set in motion. The autos as well as motorbikes were extracted from private citizens in previous protests. During a demonstration a few days ago, safety forces appeared in plainclothes. They carried weapons as well as weapons, yet they clothed like normal private citizens. We have actually been attempting to avoid them as rapidly as we can and also use the info from the precursors. Some of our buddies have been arrested. For us, despite just how difficult it is, the resistance motion versus the army routine will certainly continue in numerous ways in Mandalay as well as in various other cities throughout Myanmar.
