Myanmar(Burma) Martyrs' Day, is observed on the 19th of July every year in Myanmar. It is on this day in 1947 that the Father of the Burmese independence, Aung San(the father of detained pro-democracy leader and Nobel Peace laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi ), and independence leaders including his elder brother, were assassinated. Burmese from all over the world observes the day in memory of his martyrdom and of all those who gave up their lives for the freedom of Myanmar(Burma).

For the souls of nine Heroes
Who, on this day were slain
We humbly bow and pray
A wreath of honour could be made
But nothing could ever match your sacrifices and commitment
For the freedom we embrace.
Moulmein Thu
