All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Rambo takes aim at Myanmar junta (in Japan)

Stallone was in a combative mood as he discussed his 4th outing...His target was the Myanmar junta, which he said is treating its people brutally. “This is apparent in the indifference of the government to the people’s suffering since the recent cyclone,” he said during a photo call at the Peninsula hotel in Tokyo...

“The reason I wanted to another ‘Rambo’ is because I wasn’t happy with the last one, much like with ‘Rocky,’” Stallone said. “This one is more realistic and political. Not many people know about the Burma-Karen civil war. It’s the longest-running civil war on the planet and has been going on for 60 years. It’s a strong film and I want to open people’s eyes. It’s especially important for Americans to understand that there is a lot of suffering going on beyond their borders. I think there will be great social change in Burma and we’ll be proud if our movie can be a part of that.”
