၂ဝဝ၇ ၿငိမ္းခ်မ္းေရး လမ္းေလွ်ာက္သူမ်ားအား ျပန္လႊတ္ပါ

၂ဝဝ၇ ၾသဂုတ္ ၁၅ ရက္တြင္ နအဖ အာဏာပိုင္တို႔က ေလာင္စာဆီ ေစ်းႏႈန္းမ်ားကို ရုတ္တရက္ အဆမ်ာစြာ ျမွင့္တင္လိုက္လိုက္သည့္ အတြက္ ေနာက္ဆက္တြဲ ျဖစ္ေပၚလာမည့္ ကုန္ေစ်းႏႈန္း ႀကီးျမင့္မႈ အပါအဝင္ အေထြေထြ အၾကပ္အတည္းမ်ားကို ေျဖရွင္းေပးရန္ (၈၈) မ်ဳိးဆက္သစ္ ေက်ာင္းသားမ်ားက ၂ဝဝ၇ ၾသဂုတ္လ ၁၈ ရက္တြင္ တပ္မေတာ္ အစိုးရအား အေလးအနက္ ေတာင္းဆိုခဲ့သည္။

၂ဝဝ၇ ၾသဂုတ္ ၁၈ ရက္တြင္ (၈၈) မ်ဳိးဆက္သစ္ ေက်ာင္းသားမ်ားက ၿငိမ္းခ်မ္းစြာ လမ္းေလွ်ာက္ၾကသည္။ ေအာ္ဟစ္ဆူပူျခင္း မရွိ။ လႈ႔ံေဆာ္ျခင္းမရွိ။ ေတာင္းဆိုျခင္း မရွိ။

၂ဝဝ၇ ၾသဂုတ္ ၂၁ ရက္ ညသန္းေခါင္တြင္ (၈၈) မ်ဳိးဆက္သစ္ ေက်ာင္းသား အမ်ားစုတို႔၏ ေနအိမ္မ်ားသို႔ နအဖ အာဏာပိုင္မ်ာက တၿပိဳင္တည္း ဝင္ေရာက္၍ ဖမ္းဆီးေခၚေဆာင္သြားသည္။ မင္းကိုႏိုင္၊ ကိုကိုႀကီး၊ ကိုမင္းေဇယ်ာ၊ ကိုျပံဳးခ်ဳိ၊ ကိုျမေအး၊ ကိုဂ်င္မီ၊ ကိုအံ့ဘြယ္ေက်ာ္၊ ကိုမာကီ၊ ကိုပဏၰိထြန္း၊ ကိုယဥ္ထြန္း အပါအဝင္ ေက်ာင္းသား (၂ဝ)ခန္႔ အဖမ္းခံရသည္။ ယခုဆိုလွ်င္ တႏွစ္မွ် ရွိေလၿပီ။
