March 1st. You should know.


So, how went the celebrations? I am going to celebrate what I missed thusly:

1. Barbados: today between 9:30 and 12 PM EET
2. Scotland: today between 12 and 14:30 PM EET
3. Central African Republic: today between 14:30 PM and 17 PM EET
4. Antractica: overnight
5. Laos: tomorrow between 9:30 and 12 PM EET
6. UAE: tomorrow between 12 and 14:30 PM EET
7: Myanmar: tomorrow between 14:30 and 17 PM EET

Upcoming 3 celebrations:
December 5: Thailand
December 6: Finland
December 9: Tanzania


And I missed one. December 1st was also Myanmar's day (although, to be noted), their National Day varies according the full moon in the month of November.

Myanmar: (1920)



In 1920 the first university students' strike in history broke out in protest against the new University Act which the students believed would only benefit the elite and perpetuate colonial rule. 'National Schools' sprang up across the country in protest against the colonial education system, and the strike came to be commemorated as 'National Day'. There were further strikes and anti-tax protests in the later 1920s led by the Wunthanu athins. Prominent among the political activists were Buddhist monks (hpongyi), such as U Ottama and U Seinda in the Arakan who subsequently led an armed rebellion against the British and later the nationalist government after independence, and U Wisara, the first martyr of the movement to die after a protracted hunger strike in prison.

December 5:

Thailand: (1927)



Thailand celebrates the birthday of their king on their National Day.
Bhumibol Adulyadej (Thai: ภูมิพลอดุลยเดช; RTGS: pronounced [pʰuːmípʰon ʔŕdunjádčːt] (born 5 December 1927) is the reigning King of Thailand. He is known as Rama IX. Having reigned since 9 June 1946, he is the world's longest-serving current head of state and the longest-reigning monarch in Thai history. Although Bhumibol is legally a constitutional monarch, it is believed that he has made several decisive interventions in Thai politics. He was credited with facilitating Thailand's transition to democracy in the 1990s, although he has supported numerous military regimes, including Sarit Dhanarajata's during the 1960s and the Council for National Security in 2006–8. His reign has seen 15 coups, 16 constitutions and 27 changes of prime ministers. He has used his influence to stop military coups, including attempts in 1981 and 1985. Bhumibol is advised by a hand-picked Privy Council.

December 6:

Finland: (1917)



After new elections and the defeat of the interim government, on 5 November 1917, the Parliament declared itself to be "the possessor of supreme State power" in Finland, based on Finland's Constitution, and more precisely on §38 in the old Instrument of Government of 1772, which had been enacted by the Estates after Gustav III's bloodless coup. On 15 November 1917, the Bolsheviks declared a general right of self-determination, including the right of complete secession, "for the Peoples of Russia". On the same day the Finnish Parliament issued a declaration by which it assumed, pro tempore, all powers of the Sovereign in Finland. The old Instrument of Government was however no longer deemed suitable. Leading circles had long held monarchism and hereditary nobility to be antiquated, and advocated a republican constitution for Finland. The Senate of Finland, the government the Parliament had appointed in November, came back to the Parliament with a proposal for a new republican Instrument of Government on 4 December. The Declaration of Independence was technically given the form of a preamble of the proposition, and was intended to be agreed by the Parliament. Parliament adopted the Declaration on 6 December. On 18 December (31 December N. S. ) the Soviet Russian government issued a Decree, recognizing Finland's independence, and on December 22 (January 4, 1918 N. S.) it was approved by the highest Soviet executive body – VTsIK.

Since my time here on the weekend is not assured...

December 9:

Tanzania: (1961)



British rule came to an end in 1961 after a relatively peaceful (compared with neighbouring Kenya, for instance) transition to independence. In 1954, Julius Nyerere transformed an organization into the politically oriented Tanganyika African National Union (TANU). TANU's main objective was to achieve national sovereignty for Tanganyika. A campaign to register new members was launched, and within a year TANU had become the leading political organization in the country. Nyerere became Minister of British-administered Tanganyika in 1960 and continued as Prime Minister when Tanganyika became officially independent on December 9, 1961. In 1967 Nyerere's first presidency took a turn to the Left after the Arusha Declaration, which codified a commitment to socialism in Pan-African fashion. After the Declaration, banks were nationalized, as were many large industries.
