Burmese activitists launch campaign Depeyin killer in Japan

Burmese pro-democracy activists will held rally and demonstrate in
Tokyo to launch protection of a delegation of Burmese military junta
from 24 August to 26 August.
A key leader of the Union Solidarity and Development Association
(USDA), the junta-backed mass organization, Maj-Gen Htay oo who is
also the minister of Agriculture and Irrigation, is on an official
visit to Japan, the first Burmese senior official to visit the East
Asia nation in four years.

USDA has been involved in several past attacks on democracy activists,
particularly during the demonstrations of August and September 2007
including the 2003 Depayin massacre in which hundreds of opposition
party supporters were killed
Japanese government officials said they will raise issues affecting
Burma during Htay Oo’s one week visit.
Burmese activists and supporters of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu
Kyi, have criticized with the visit.
Wai Yen Moe, Burmese activist in Japan told on Monday, “We will held
rally and demostrate to protect the visit of Burmese military
official. Our demonstration will start from 24 August to 26 August in
front of New Otani hotel which Htay Oo stay and office of Ministry of
foreign affairs of Japan.
He added that some activists raised All Burma Students’ Democratic
Front (ABSDF) flag in compared with Burmese and Chinese Flags at the
New Otani hotel at 5 am of Monday.”
After the Suu Kyi verdict, the Japanese foreign minister said in
statement that Japan was deeply disappointed and called for the
release of Suu Kyi and other political prisoners.
Japan is one of Burma’s main donor nations. Japan provided Burma with
more than US $2.96 billion from 1999 to 2006 in Official Development
Assistance (ODA), according to Japan officials.
Yuki Akimoto of BurmaInfo, a group analyzing Burmese politics and
relations with Japan said, "We find it hard to understand the Japanese
government's intention in inviting (Htay Oo) just after Suu Kyi was
found guilty (of breaching the terms of her detention)."
After visiting the Great Buddha of Kamakura, in Kanagawa Prefecture,
on Thursday, they were to meet Japanese lawmakers and farm ministry
officials and visit farming facilities, according to officials.
About 700 people also hold a rally and demanded in Tokyo on Sunday to
release pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. They carried signs
saying "Unjustice Court of Burma" or "Free Daw Aung San Suu Kyi".
