Citizens of Color : Ko Bo Gyi

by 伊凌 yi ling

Ko Bo Gyi, one of the lead strikers under Aung Sang Suu Kyi for the National League for Democracy, shares his story of fighting for Burma’s freedom. Moving from the country…to army…to jail…to rallying 100+ villages to vote and working with Aung Sang Suu Kyi…to escaping to the Thailand border and Kareni army…to being a human rights reporter with ANKHR…to continuing to dream and strike for Burma here in the U.S.

What guides him? Dreaming of the end of military rule, returning to Burma and the rule of law, globalization of peace, 4 NLD agreements, the 5 Buddhist precepts.
