67th Karen Martyrs Day commemoration ceremony, Victoria (12/08/2017)

On the 12th of August 2017, the 67th Karen Martyrs' commemoration service was held and organised by the Australian Karen Organisation. Each and every year the Karen Martyrs' commemoration service is held on this day to remind us about our strong brave soldiers that had sacrificed their life for our Karen people's freedom. On this particular day, our Karen people pay tribute to our greatest leader Saw Ba Oo Gyi and his greatest fellow leaders who have made a great sacrifice, battled with an honour for the freedom of the Karen people.

The commemoration service was joined by a distinguish guest speaker, the chairman of the International Karen Organisation. A great encouragement speech was presented by the chairman of International Karen Organisation. The service was then followed by a number of great presenters and a number of beautiful songs were presented by various youth groups. Laying of wreaths (laying flowers crowns) took place in the middle of the service to pay their respect to our fallen martyrs.

The service then concluded with a nice refreshment and it was a successful commemoration service as many of the Karen people attended the service to pay their respect to our leaders past and present.
