Monks On the March Again in Burma

Monks On the March Again in Burma

Dear friends,

Big news: one year after Burmese Buddhist monks led a nation-wide "Saffron Revolution" calling for human rights and democracy in Burma, some have begun taking to the streets yet again.  In Sittwe, a major city in western Burma, over 100 Burmese monks marched through the streets, calling for change in the country. 

Meanwhile, in response to your activism and growing international criticism of the Burmese junta, this weekend, the United Nations Secretary General convened a group of countries that called for the regime to release all political prisoners in Burma.

The UN's announcement is only a small step forward for the those who want to see an end to military rule in Burma, and more pressure is needed to ensure that the UN increases its efforts to secure freedom for all political prisoners.  

If you haven't done so already, please send a message to the UN Secretary General urging him to seize the moment and secure the release of all 2,000 political prisoners in Burma. Once you have, please encourage friends to send one too.

It is very important for the UN to receive your messages because, unfortunately, it looks like the Secretary General may be trying to back out of a plan he had made to travel to Burma in December.  Yet, he is suggesting no alternatives and still hasn't offered his support to an international call for a ban on global weapons sales to Burma's military regime.  Lack of action on his part is adding to his reputation as a very weak leader (see yesterday's outstanding analysis of this in the Washington Post).  Backing out of a trip to Burma would even further diminish the UN's standing.
 
Keep circulating that petition!  We need to keep the pressure on the UN to DO SOMETHING REAL for Burma.  Talks in New York aren't enough -- the Secretary General needs to show some leadership by obtaining the release of all political prisoners by the end of December.
 
In addition to your actions, please take a moment to say a prayer and/or consider the courage of the Burmese monks.
 
Sincerely,

Aung Din, Jeremy Woodrum, Mike Haack, Jennifer Quigley, Jacqui Pilch
