A total of thirty members of All Burma Federation of Student Unions (Upper Myanmar) from Yangon, Yadanabon University, Kyaukse Technological University, Myingyan and Monywa led by Vice Chairman Moe Tet Nay (a) Aung Kyaw Moe ABFSU (Upper Myanmar) and Aung Hmai San left Mula Ngasutaung Monastery in Paleik in Singaing Township at 8.50 am on 21 January and arrived at a house in Sugyi Htantaw in Pyilon-naing Ward in Kyaukse at 7.20 pm and spent the night there.
Along their way to Kyaukse, they distributed leaflets of the statement of the Leading Committee for Democracy Education Movement on prerequisites for development of the national education policy and enactment of laws for democracy education system and shouted slogans.
Township administrators and members of township management committees along their way explained them that they would be given permission if they sought it in accordance with the law.
On 22 January morning, Mandalay Region Security and Border Affairs Minister Col Aung Kyaw Moe, the advocate-general of Mandalay Region, the rector of Mandalay University and officials went to the house they were staying and explained them that their activities were breaching the law, saying they should do so in accordance with the law and should cooperate with the government by abiding by democratic principles at a time of democratic transition. The officials also told them that the president had sent a message to the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw so that the provisions of the national education law can be amended after considering their demands and the message had been released for the public.
However, the group responded to the officials that they would proceed with their schedule and continued to Myittha and Natogyi Township, according to sources.–Tin Maung (Mandalay)
