KNU chairman said that he will cooperate with all organizations to end the military dictatorships.


Karen National Union (KNU) chairman Pado Saw Kwe Htoo Win said that they will cooperate with community-based organizations, including democratic forces, and the ethnic armed groups who are fighting against the military dictatorship to end all the ways and activities of the dictatorship. On August 12, the KNU chairman sent a message for the 73rd Karen Martyr's Day, pointing out that although the army is still using racism and military dictatorship, there is still no unity among those who are fighting for reform, including the Karen people.


Pado Saw Kwe Htoo Win said that we must gather all groups and work until the fate of the army is returned to the hands of the people. Although the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) was signed, the KNU has revealed that the NCA has been destroyed since the military coup.


The KNU, which controls the Burmese-Thai border areas within Kayin, Mon, Bago, and Thanintharyi regions into seven regions, joined the armed resistance after the military coup.


According to the list of the KNU center, during the two and a half years of the military coup, more than 10,000 clashes took place in the KNU area, and nearly 600,000 civilians fled their homes.
