  • Summary

  • 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.

    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. You can continue to support the people of Myanmar by keeping this conversation going. You can subscribe to this podcast on all major podcasting apps, including Apple, Spotify and Acast.

    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”.
