Documents on Communism in Burma, 1945 -1977
MetadataShow full item record
The Year 1948 will be the most decisive year for the Burmese revolution. The conferment of bogus "independence" on Burma on January 4, 1948 is an imperialist manoeuver to launch another assault on the Burmese people, fighting for real independence and people's democracy. Desperate efforts will be made by the British imperialists in collaboration with the A.F.P.F.L. Government to rally mass support by capitalising the "independence" celebrations and then launch a virulent anti-communist campaign, both political and military. Imperialism knows that its plans to tighten its grip over Burma's colonial exploitation behind the facade of "fake independence" will not succeed unless it is able to disrupt and then crush the rising mass resistance of the people by isolating the Communists and launching full scale civil war against them.
