Young Martyr Ko Ko Win

Original source : Nicknayman blog (and a photo)

Since 1962, there have been countless Democracy Freedom Fighters, who have been brutally killed by the ruthless military junta. One of those young martyrs, who selflessly and willingly gave their lives for the freedom of their beloved country was Ko Ko Win.

The eldest son of U Htay Oo and Daw Win Win Myint, who lived in 376 Marga Road, 12th Quarter, South Okkala, Ko Ko Win protested in September's Golden Colour Revolution. On 27 September, at the foot of Shwe Dagon Pagoda, he was beaten by soldiers and riot police. His head, back and chest were hit with steel batons. He was being treated at first in local clinics, but was sent to Thingun Gyun Hospital on 24 October, as his condition was worsening. He died on 3nd November, as a result of the head injuries he sustained during the murderous attack.

Burma, an independent country, but in name only, will be the scene of much more fightings until Democratic Freedom is achieved and inevitably, many more of its most precious stars will fall.
