The following human rights groups, political organizations and individuals would like to express our grave concern and anger over the suppression of the pro-democracy movement in Burma. We support the peaceful demonstrations organized by the Buddhist monks, which were joined by many Burmese people. We condemn the military junta’s use of force to crack down on the peaceful protesters and urge the junta to heed the voices of the Burmese people and respect their human rights, including the freedom of protest, freedom of assembly and freedom of expression.
We salute the courage, determination and persistence of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her fellow democrats in fighting for a democratic Burma. We urge the junta to end Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest and allow her party and other political parties to operate freely and to take part in free and fair election.
We call on the Hong Kong people and members of the international community to condemn the bloody crack down and to support the courageous Burmese people in their fight for democracy, human rights and the rule of law. At this critical moment, we offer our support in solidarity.
