This week, Aung took a break from self-imposed exile on the Thailand-Myanmar border to condemn India's moves to exploit one of the world's largest deposits of natural gas discovered in the 1990s in the Arakan sea off Myanmar's west coast.
"The dollars that the military regime earns from gas will go into bullets to kill pro-democracy students," said Aung, president of the All Arakan Students' Youth Congress. "Their blood will make the colour of the gas red." Aung is among Myanmarese pro-democracy activists, student leaders from India's Northeast, and international human rights watchers who have gathered here to protest against India's involvement in a proposal to transport the gas from Myanmar to India. But this is a wrong time to buy gas from Myanmar," said Aung. "Those who want Myanmar's gas should wait until democracy is established," Aung said. In Malaysia 82 activists including an Australian national were arrested for gathering illegally while 17-Burmese activists in Bangkok, Thailand were detained in the Bangkok Immigration Detention Centre today, said Wong Aung, the President of All Arakan Students’ and Youth Congress (AASYC) based in Thai-Burma border.

"It is too early to say whether the Burmese government is taking the lead on the issue of transparency," said Wong Aung, director of the advocacy group Shwe Gas Movement, which has devoted several years to promoting fairness in the gas and oil sector.
"We have been pushing them [corporate stakeholders] to publish this information, however, there are challenges in identifying who the stakeholders even are," said Wong Aung, a member of Burma's EITI civil society steering committee and director of the advocacy group Shwe Gas Movement. "I do not believe that crony companies will disclose this kind of information," he added, emphasizing that the data is only meaningful to concerned communities if it is complete, inclusive, and applies especially to those corporate entities that are most reluctant to cooperate. "There are more than 100 [extractive] projects operating in Burma informally, illegally, with no contract and no accountability," he said.

Protest group the Shwe Gas Movement repeatedly called for the project to be abandoned, citing several human rights abuses during the construction - including confiscation of land, environmental damage and poor labour practices."We cannot let this project set a bad example for future investors," said Wong Aung, coordinator of the Shwe Gas Movement.
