On this day, the imprisoned artists such as singer Popo, Ma Win Min Than and director Mai Tee were released. That’s why there aren’t many artists left in prison. Many of those who have been released do not do much artistic activities anymore. Even a famous model, Paing Takhun, has been criticized for repeating himself on the job. As artists, it would be better to stay away from the war council and do nothing at this time. If not, it may be resented by the people.
At 8 o’clock tonight, they will hold a fire strike to commemorate the tragedy in Kachin Anantpa. We can’t do it everywhere in the big cities, but we participate in some place. Lately, the interest in that style of strike has gradually decreased. The military council must be threatening. As interest waned, such strikes would eventually disappear.
