Statement by President and Mrs. George W. Bush

March 12, 2015

DALLAS, Texas

“We are deeply concerned about the recent arrests of peaceful demonstrators in Burma by local authorities.  Among those arrested is Phyoe Phyoe Aung, General Secretary of the All-Burma Federation of Student Unions and a participant in the Bush Institute’s Liberty and Leadership Forum.  She is a passionate advocate for education in Burma. Like Phyoe Phyoe Aung, many of the demonstrators are students working to support Burma’s transition by advocating for a transparent and accountable education system. Education is vital to the political, economic, and social well-being of every nation and people.  We hope that those arrested will soon be released.”
