This is a Request for Discussion for the creation of a new group, 
soc.culture.burma.

WHY?

Burma is the largest nation of southeast Asia, and has been in the throes
of a civil war for decades.  Burma is one of the most isolated countries
in the world, and a place where political discussion is forbidden by law. 
Currently, netnews discussion of Burma is relegated to soc.culture.thai
and bit.listserv.seasia-l.  As for the former, posting to the Thai group
is inappropriate, because not only is it a group concerned with another
nation, but also a nation whose industrial and political activities
vis-a-vis Burma are often called into question.  Some people feel that
having to discuss Burma on the Thai group is like having to discuss Tibet
on a China group -- only sometimes appropriate.  As for
bit.listserv.seasia-l, open discussion is discouraged by the listowner,
because of its primary purpose as a distribution point of non-opinion
based news. 


CHARTER

soc.culture.burma will be an unmoderated forum for the posting of any and 
all news relating to Burma, as well as opinion and discussion about any 
aspect of Burmese politics, ethnicity, life, culture, society or war.

It will serve to hasten the end of the informationally-repressive 
circumstances affecting the Burmese people and land and anyone interested 
in them.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

                FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (1st of 2)

Unmoderated group soc.culture.burma

Newsgroups line:
soc.culture.burma       Politics, culture, news, discussion about Burma

Votes must be recieved by 23:59 GMT, 2 January 1994.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  Voting questions
should be directed to Ed Bailey <[email protected]>.  For questions
about the proposed group, please contact the proposer, Brian Beker 
<[email protected]>.

CHARTER

soc.culture.burma will be an unmoderated forum for the posting of any and
all news, opinion, discussion and information relating to any aspect of
Burmese politics, ethnicity, life, culture, religion, travel, society or 
war. 

It will be a forum in which diverse opinions and unfettered debate will be
encouraged, without regard to political, philosophical, religious or
personal bias. 

It will serve to hasten the end of the informationally-repressive 
circumstances affecting the Burmese people and land and anyone interested 
in them.

No commercial offers of any kind will be permitted on soc.culture.burma,
though information of the nature of money-saving travel tips will be
allowed as long as they do not constitute any direct offers to sell any
services or merchandise. 

OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION

Burma is the largest nation of mainland southeast Asia, and has been in
the throes of a civil war for decades.  Burma is one of the most isolated
countries in the world, and a place where political discussion or, for
that matter, any gathering of more than four people, is forbidden by law. 
The people of Burma have exerted a major influence on several areas
including religion, music, literature and art and philosophy. The
difficulty of accessing information about any of these subjects warrants
the birth of this new group. 

Currently, netnews discussion of Burma is relegated to soc.culture.thai
and bit.listserv.seasia-l.  Posting to the Thai group is inappropriate,
because it is concerned with another nation, and often burdened with Burma
topics that would be better relegated to a news group of its own. 
Creation of soc.culture.burma will enable other netnews users to locate
Burma topics without difficulty.  And as for bit.listserv.seasia-l, the
intention of the group is to provide news about Southeast Asia without the
considerable traffic that ensuing discussion may cause. In this way,
soc.culture.burma will augment these groups, not detract from them. 

The questions raised during the discussion period had to do with the use
of the name .burma as opposed to .myanmar.  The decision to go with .burma
was based on three factors: first, every Burmese respondent to the RFD
supported the group as soc.culture.burma; second, as another poster
pointed out, .burma is much more familiar and therefore practical to
netnews users; and, third, because no one voiced solid objections to 
.burma.  A few posters asked about the proper use of name, but did not 
object to .burma.

soc.culture.burma, in the finest tradition of the Internet, would
contribute to the free flow of information about this richly fascinating
nation and its people.

I am submitting a request for discussion to create a new newsgroup

Name:    soc.culture.burma

Status:  Unmoderated

Charter: To promote exchange of information and ideas on all aspects of
         Burmese culture and society, and DEMOCRACY MOVEMENT.

Why:     The country and its people are struggling for democracy and to
         join the international community.

         The newsgroup would serve an important role as a medium to carry
         information exchange for people who are related to Burma one way
         or another as well as for those who are interested in Burmese
         culture and current developments in politics (meaning democracy
         movement).

   **** Currently there's NO newsgroup that is directly related to Burma.
         (soc.culture.asean is the closest one but Burma is NOT a member of
         ASEAN)

Thanks to netters and newsadmins.
