City Declares August 12, 2022 to be Karen Martyrs' Day in Roseville

Four members of the Karen community, and Mayor Dan Roe stand for acceptance of proclamation.

On August 12, the City of Roseville commemorates Karen Martyrs' Day.

The City of Roseville is committed to recognizing and honoring the contributions of all members of our communities. On August 12, 1950, Karen National leader Saw Ba U Gyi, the founder and president of the Karen National Union (KNU), was assassinated with eight of his colleagues in Kawkareik, Karen State (Burma) by the Burmese Army. Ever since then, August 12 is recognized as Karen National Martyrs' Day. 

On Martyrs' Day, Karen people all over the world commemorate and honor fallen leaders, soldiers, and civilians that have lost their lives in the struggle for freedom, democracy, and human rights.

The City Council declares August 12 2022 to be the 72nd Commemoration of Karen Martyrs' Day in the City of Roseville.
