Bay Dah's Statement in English and Burmese
During the period of Pre World War II in Burma, the Indian Chettiars are the main Money lenders to the poor Burmese Farmers and they benefited a lot from tricking the uneducated Burmese farmers by asking them to sign(make a cross) on the piece of Paper before they borrowed the money.
By these way Many Burmese farmers were cheated and loose their land, their home and worst of all their daughters become mistress of that Chettiars because of that piece of paper that they signed Blindly on that paper without knowing what was written on that. Now Than Shwe and his followers are trying to do the same TRICK on the Burmese People. They didn't explain to the whole country what is inside this "so called" draft constitution. They DON"T distributed the booklet of Draft constitution sufficiently(eg. only one book at the Burmese embassy in UK and 8 books at the Burmese embassy in Singapore and people have to put their passport or ID as a deposit at the embassy to read the draft constitution within the embassy compound) and they still ordered the people to vote for the referendum for that unexplained draft constitution.
Since we even don't know what is written inside, we will NEVER vote "yes" (actually we don't even need to read what is inside because we all know it is all about for them to retain their power) All Burmese PLEASE BEWARE of this TRICK!! Don't let Chettier Than Shwe and his Followers cheat you. If all of you get cheated then you and your whole Burma will lost the freedom, Human rights and Democracy forever. Only action that will save your future is Vote "NO"
