About the Oxford Burma Alliance
_Created by two Oxford students and former volunteers on the Thai-Burma border, the general aim of the Oxford Burma Alliance is to spread awareness about Burma issues and create a long-lasting advocacy movement in Oxford supporting the movement towards change within Burma.
Students have always been an important force in the pro-democracy movement in Burma, and as fellow students we feel that it is our duty to stand in solidarity with them in their struggle. Their campaign for freedom, peace, and democracy has meant the end of an education system that was once the best in South-East Asia, and they are fighting against a government that wants to keep them ignorant and in the dark. Their courage and resilience in the face of brutal oppression is such an inspiration and is what keeps us going and makes us refuse to leave them behind. Burmese opposition leader and Oxford University alumna Aung San Suu Kyi once said, "Please use your liberty to promote ours." We hope that Oxford students will use their liberty and education to promote that of all Burmese people and students.
