All Ramanya Mon Association

   (ARMA)
   Established in August 1939 in Rangoon (Yangon), near the Shwe Dagon Pagoda, ARMA was a nonpolitical organization whose goal was the preservation of Mon language, culture, and identity. Largely inactive during World War II, after the war the Association published Mon language textbooks and a journal, The Mon Bulletin. Although it was basically apolitical, some ARMA members supported the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League, while others wanted to make common cause with other minority groups, especially the Karens (Kayins).
