Protect the Burmese: An appeal to UN Security Council

[b]Protect the Burmese: An appeal to UN Security Council[/b]

[b]Bangkok, 09 August, ([/b]The National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma, the Burmese Government in exile of the National League for Democracy (NLD), opposition political party led by democracy icon and the Nobel prize laureate for peace, indomitable Aung San Suu Kyi, has urged all Burmese living abroad to appeal individually and in groups to all 15 members of the UN Security Council to protect the people of Burma.

This appeal is to be initiated on the occasion of the 17th Anniversary of the "8888 Democratic Uprising" in Burma and the concerned friends of Burma around the world, and the people of Burma compelled to live in exile are requested to appeal to address the rapidly deteriorating situation in Burma and find ways and means to protect the people of Burma from the systematic human rights violations and social illnesses, including poverty and deprivation of access to health care and education resulting from the protracted armed conflict and the long political stalemate.

The proposed appeal is to urgently indicate the early warning signs emerging from Burma today which indicates that Burma is on the verge of devastation unless national reconciliation is reached through negotiation and compromise so that a common course of action can be pursued to immediately address poverty, poor health care, low education standards, environmental degradation, and the general feeling of insecurity in the society.
