RESIDENTS of Muse, Kutkhine and Namkhan in northern Shan State held rallies in their towns on 24 October in support of the recently signed Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement between the government and eight ethnic armed groups. The NCA was signed on 15 October in Nay Pyi Taw in the presence of President U Thein  Sein. The rallies were held at each town’s city hall.
Local ethnic leaders asked the demonstrators whether they agreed to NCA, and many responded that they approved wholeheartedly and committed to implementing the initiatives of the ceasefire agreement.
Over 1,000 people rallied in Namkhan on Saturday.
