March 13

On 1988 March 13, this day, special police forces (lone htane) shot down the students from YIT, killing Ko Phone Maw and Ko Soe Naing. This event continued as students’ demonstration on March 16, which was cracked down by the troops horribly and later that event was known as Red Bridge massacre. That day, demonstrating students were surrounded and hit with truncheon to death by troops. Again, arrested students died due to suffocation inside prison trucks. (Later the BSPP gov confessed the deaths in prison trucks when U Aung Gyi’s open letters came out.)

These events sparked the revolution of students against dictator BSPP ( မဆလ).
