Burma: Help Justice Defeat Tyranny
Today, Aung San Suu Kyi, the iconic Burmese pro democracy leader, was cruelly sentenced to another year and a half of detention on trumped up charges.|
But this is just the tip of the iceberg of thousands of crimes committed by the regime against the Burmese people. Over the next two months, with the UK and the US holding the Presidency of the United Nations Security Council, we have our best chance to get an international inquiry that could lead to the top generals' arrests. But we need a massive global movement to push the US, UK and the Council to act and persuade China not to veto.
Sign the petition for an investigation and we will deliver it at the UN with a massive banner like the mock up image at right:
To UK and US Governments and the United Nations Security Council:
We call on you to condemn the cruel conviction of Aung San Suu Kyi to another year and a half in detention and to immediately take steps at the United Nations Security Council to create a Commission of Inquiry to investigate and hold the Burmese regime to account for crimes against humanity.
