The National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) and the National Unity Government (NUG) issued this 2024 new year statement in appreciation of the revolutionary forces who collaborate together to eradicate all forms of dictatorship and build a Federal Democratic Union.

  1. Since the beginning of the attempted coup, this revolution has been carried on through various efforts involving the entire society, and it has undoubtedly gained success due to the solidarity of revolutionary forces through timely attacks across the country, such as operations 1027 and 1111. We gratefully acknowledge these achievements as the result of the relentless backing of the public, the coordinated efforts of ethnic revolutionary organizations, people defense forces (PDF), and local PDFs, and the assistance from people from both inside the country and abroad.
  2. In addition to the daily expansion of revolutionary forces-controlled territories, the revolutionary forces are able to conquer major military bases, and the steady shrinking of military controlled areas can be attributed to the people defensive war’s key success.
  3. At the same time, the need for humanitarian assistance is growing as a result of the military terrorist group’s targeting of millions of civilians, including women, children, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. To reflect this need, both regional and international governments must establish direct contact with us.
  4. We truly document the entire society’s strong commitment from the perspective of the “People Movement,” including nonviolent demonstrations and non-cooperative actions, while the military terrorist group commits horrific killings and arbitrary arrests. Furthermore, we want to inform the public that revolutionary forces are still effectively blocking the essential economic pillars of the military terrorist group from the of “Economic/Financial” front, including international sanctions.
  5. We share a strong spirit and an explicit objective for the eradication of military dictatorship, the establishment of a Federal Democratic Union, and the peace and stability of the entire region. The military terrorist group is the primary obstacle to achieving this goal, and the military has failed to build peace for several decades. And its allies, including border guard forces, militias, and other forces, are engaging in unlawful activities, threatening regional prosperity and stability. All revolutionary forces, including the NUCC, NUG, and ethnic resistance organizations, noticed the military terrorist situation as a threat to the region. Therefore, the revolutionary forces require the cooperation of regional and international governments to implement the country’s stability as well as for the regional peace and development.
  6. Currently, we are speeding up our efforts to reach a political pact among our revolutionary forces and coordinating on civilian protections, human security, and local governance arrangements in revolutionary forces-controlled areas. Furthermore, the process of developing a transitional constitution has been continued with the necessary preparations. The revolutionary forces are working together to develop arrangements for transitional justice, politics, the economy, social services, and rehabilitation for the post-revolutionary period. We would like to inform the public and international governments of our responsive efforts to build trust and solidarity.
  7. By taking the solemn oath to revolution, this spring revolution can be perceived as a precious movement toward the establishment of a Federal Democratic Union with coordinated and collective leadership, coordinative action of revolutionary forces, and participation of people of all walks of life from diverse ethnicities and areas, including women.
  8. With this New Year statement, we call on military generals, officials, officers, and soldiers who are still taking orders from the military junta to make a timely decision to oppose Min Aung Hlaing and his allies’ orders to commit war crimes, crimes against humanity, and terrorism that devastate the country and military institutions and to stand at the side of the people to fight against them.
  9. We firmly pledge that 2024 will be the year to secure the victory of the people. We wish the entire people a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Year and a victory of the Spring Revolution.

Our revolution must surely prevail!


With the solemn oath to revolution,
National Unity Consultative Council and National Unity Government
