Speak Out: Stand With The People Of Burma
Let Myanmar’s government know the world is watching. Urge the United Nations to take urgent steps to protect monks, activists and innocent civilians from further abuses.
Yesterday, Myanmar’s military junta continued a violent crackdown on its own people. Just a few hours after the departure of a U.N. envoy, soldiers went through homes looking for monks, and at least eight truckloads of prisoners were hauled out of Yangon, Burma’s biggest city.
We cannot let the violence go on.
Myanmar has an appalling human rights record. Thousands of political prisoners are detained in deteriorating prison conditions and the use of child soldiers, forced labor, and torture are common.
The recent violence has shown the world the extent of Myanmar’s brutal crimes. Urge the United Nations to take urgent steps to get Myanmar’s junta to stop the crackdown.
Thank you for speaking out on their behalf.
