TIME WILL TELL MANKIND THAT: !THE ONLY HOPE FOR THE GREAT PEOPLE OF  MYANMAR AND THE ROHINGYAS ! to get their voice, their rights and justice is The World Students Society.

IN MYANMAR : POETS - STUDENTS - PAINTERS HAVE BEEN JAILED for peacefully speaking their minds. 584 people are either political prisoners or are awaiting trial on those kinds of charges.

ONCE UPON A TIME DAW AUNG SAN SUU KYI WAS thought of as a peace icon. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has become the type of leader she once decried. She has totally and permanently lost her halo.

Her strongest critics accuse her, as a member of the Bamar ethnic majority, of racism and unwillingness to fight for the human rights of all people in Myanmar.

Her Facebook page once carried the post ''Fake rape',' abruptly discounting the systematic and well-documented sexual violence committed against the Rohingya.

''IT IS IRONIC THAT WHILE THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY used its liberty to promote Aung San Suu Kyi's, she is using some of the very same legal mechanism as the military to stifle freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly,'' said Bill Richardson, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a longtime ally of of Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi.

Mr. Richardson broke with her two years ago, when Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi became so angry that he thought she might slap him after he urged her to free two Reuters journalists who had been imprisoned after uncovering a massacre of Rohingya, he said.

MS. AUNG SAN SUU KYI SIMPLY AND PLAINLY refuses to acknowledge the military's drive to rid the country of Rohingya Muslims. In 2017, roughly three-quarters of a million Rohingya fled to neighboring Bangladesh.

Many of those left in the country are in internment camps. The Rohingyas were not allowed to vote in the Nov-8 elections, and the polls were canceled in other ethnic minority conflict zones, disenfranchisng more than 2.5 million non-Bamae.

As result, ethnic parties were unable to make the electoral gains they once expected, although the National League for Democracy successfully fielded two Muslim candidates.

''Making peace and reconciliation is much easier with ethnic groups, but she only tried with the military,'' said Tu Ja, chairman of the ethnic Kachin State People's Party.

Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi's supporters say that her refusal to speak up on behalf of Myanmar's vulnerable communities is not innate chauvinism but rather a political pragmatism that comes from anting to deny the military an opportunity to once again seize full power. Army rule began in 1962 with the excuse that a civilian government was being overwhelmed by civil war.

But the national mood in Myanmar is animated by the Xenophobia that limns Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi's unwillingness to defend the rights of ethnic minorities. Thousands of Buddhist monks have held protests against the West for wanting to bring the military to justice foe ethnic cleansing.

Many others in the country's Bamar heartland accuse an Islamic cabal to trying to turn a Buddhist nation into a Muslim enclave.

''People in the West thought that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi would be unpopular because of the crackdown on the Bengalis,'' said U Tha Citta, an influential Buddhist monk, using a term to suggest, incorrectly, that the Rohingya are from Bangladesh, not Myanmar. ''But what she did was right.''

Since the election, Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi has remained holed up in a villa in Naypyidaw, the fortress capital that was built by the generals to showcase their might. She has repeatedly refused requests to talk to The New York Times. She is still said to meditate every day.

The coronavirus rages outside. The military-linked party, which was trounced by the National League for Democracy, has rejected the election results, called for a do-over and threatened to bring the army in as observers.

In Yangon, the former capital abandoned by the military, a new generation of human rights activists trade tips on how to avoid getting nabbed by Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi's government.

''We have nearly 600 political prisoners, and I was one of them a few months ago,'' said Ma Thinzar Shunlei Y1, 28, who was convicted of contravening a law on peaceful assembly when she protested the persecution of ethnic minorities.

''She has not done enough to lay the democratic foundation for basic freedom for all.''

The Sadness of this publishing continues. The World Students Society thanks authors Hannah Beech and Sa Nang.

With respectful dedication to the people of Myanmar, Students, Professors and Teachers and then the world. See Ya all prepare and register for Great Global Elections on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter- !E-WOW! - The Ecosystem 2011 :
