• Summary

  • The ah nah: Conversations with Myanmar podcast was born from a desire to bring into public consciousness the atrocities that are currently being committed in Myanmar (also known as Burma). Our goal is simply to keep the conversation going and to let the people of Myanmar know that they have not been forgotten. We hope that through these conversations we can tell the stories of Myanmar and highlight the horrific human rights abuses that continue to be perpetrated by the Tatmadaw (military), under the watch of the UN and the international community in 2021 (yes, this is happening in 2021!) With so many amazing people both inside and outside the country working hard to fight for freedom and basic human rights, we want to offer a platform for these voices to be heard. Some have been fighting this cause for decades, others are just beginning to raise their voice. Through these informative and inspiring conversations we aim to give hope to the people of Myanmar, that they will one day experience real change and finally live freely and in peace.

  • "Tin Maung"

    Oct 18 2021

    Tin Maung is a student, activist and researcher in labour and trade unions in Myanmar. Since the coup he has participated in the protests and has been involved in a number of peaceful resistance efforts in Myanmar. Most recently he has joined the Blood Money Campaign as a researcher. BMC is a non violent campaign strategy comprised of a team of core activists from different backgrounds such as labour, students, peace and education. The aim of the Blood Money Campaign is to stop all payments to the illegal Myanmar Junta particularly those from the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise also known as MOGE. They are calling on companies to freeze all payments to MOGE and instead keep the funds in an Escrow Account (until the civilian government is reinstated) in order to help the Revolution in Myanmar succeed. Here he shares his own personal insights into the situation in Myanmar while also sharing the goals and strategies of the Blood Money Campaign.

    Song: Kabar Makyay Bu (Until the End of the World), was written and recorded by Naing Myanmar, it became the revolutionary anthem of the 1988 pro-democracy movement and could be heard once again all over Myanmar during the 2021 Coup. Naing Myanmar maintains that the song is no longer his, since the '88 uprising “it belongs to everyone”.

  • Thet Htar Thet

    Oct 11 2021

    Suzanne and Ruth are joined by social media activist, Thet Htar Thet. As a member of the Karen ethnic minority, she grew up with stories of the Tatmadaw's brutality, but as a young child she did not quite understand the true evil they were inflicting on others. But now that her eyes are fully open to the true horrors of this military regime, and now that she is witnessing firsthand the very 'calculated, clinical domination and decimation' that the military is enacting on her people, she can’t sit back and do nothing: she will not allow the world to ignore her people's plight and is determined to document what is happening in Myanmar. As one of Ah Nah's trusted news sources, she describes herself as a little fish, but with thousands of followers on social media; she is playing a vital role in raising awareness and turning the tide on the Tatmadaw. Thet Htar Thet is an extraordinary young woman who is bravely exposing the atrocities committed daily by the Myanmar military for the world to see. Listen and be inspired by another outstanding member of Myanmar's youth risking everything to save her country and her people.

  • "John Sifton"

    Oct 4 2021

    Suzanne and Ruth are joined by John Sifton, Asia Advocacy Director at Human Rights Watch. Having previously served as a researcher and Acting Deputy Washington Director, he now focuses on South and Southeast Asia, East Asia, the Middle East, and terrorism and counter-terrorism issues worldwide. Sifton began working at Human Rights Watch in 2001, first as a researcher on Afghanistan and Pakistan, and then as the senior researcher on terrorism and counterterrorism. He has been working on sanctions policy in relation to Myanmar for over 10 years. Here he offers his expertise and knowledge on the subject of sanctions on the Tatmadaw, particularly Myanmar Oil and Gas (MOGE), which is worth over $1 billion to the Myanmar military annually. If sanctioned, the blocking of this main source of the military’s income could prove decisive in changing the course of Myanmar's future.
