Excerpt from U Win Tin’s prison memoir, Translation copyright Kyi May Kaung 3-25-2010

“As in the well known Burmese nursery rhyme Jah-Eh, which runs in an unending vicious circle, the Burmese people are still crying.
“Although the addendum activism to the revolution is trying to pull us out of the darkness through the hole in the wall, we are still hanging there stuck, our legs half in, half out.
“The monkey on the shrine shelf is still running up and down.”

Hanthawadi U Win Tin, What’s That? A Living Hell! p. 38., AAPPB, Bangkok, March 2010
