Soe, Thakin


Soe, Thakin
   (1905-1989)
   A prominent communist leader, member of the Dobama Asiayone, and a founding member of the Communist Party of Burma (CPB) when it was established in August 1939. During World War II, he served as secretary general of the CPB, but he broke with the mainstream communists and established his own party, the Communist Party-Red Flag, in February 1946. Until captured by government troops in 1970, he operated underground, mostly in the Arakan (Rakhine) Yoma region. Granted amnesty by the Ne Win regime in 1980, he played a peripheral role in the prodemocracy movement of 1988, as a patron of the Unity and Development Party.
