Description/subject: "...Recently, the authorities have been compelling welfare organisations, trading organisations, professional organisations, academic organisations, students and other organisations involving government servants to hold so-called " Meetings to display the peoples' wishes". They have been coerced to attend these meetings where speeches and resolutions have had to be made and taken as instructed by the authorities. Using and manipulating these organisations for political ends is improper and is a deliberate ploy by the authorities to confuse the political issues. 4. The National League for Democracy is a legally registered political party and has the confidence of the people by having gained 82 percent of the seats in the parliamentary general elections. Therefore, we claim the right to hold a public meeting to inform and reveal to the people about what is happening in the country today.""
