Burma's Communist Party launches a new website - The Irrawaddy, January 27, 2004
The Communist Party of Burma recently launched its new
website, in preparation for "the last battle"
in the decades-long conflict between the countrys
military rulers and the people, according
to the website... The Communist Party of Burma, or CPB,
collapsed in 1989 after many of its members mutinied against
their leaders. Today, most of its members live in Chinese
towns bordering northern Burma and deeper inside China...
The party was founded in 1939 by young dissidents who played
a key role in Burmas fight against British colonial
rule, including independence hero and national leader Aung
San, father of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The party took up arms against Rangoon in 1948. It also
took part in the 1988 pro-democracy movement and many activists
were jailed for having suspected links to the party.
