More on Burma

I’ve done a little more as far as learning about Burma.

Here’s a link for proactive things you can do, joining with people across the world.

Here is the statment fromt the Solidarity Rally in Indy on last Sunday.

The Solidarity Statement of the Chin Ethnic and Other Ethnic Nationalities

from the Union of Burma to the Peaceful Demonstrators in Burma

We, the ethnic Chins and other ethnic nationalities from the Union of Burma in Indiana State express our solidarity with the Buddhist monks, students, youth, and the entire people who are protesting peacefully in the Union of Burma for peace, freedom, human rights, reconciliation and democracy.

We deeply deplore the Burmese military regime’s violent yet brutal suppression of peaceful demonstration by killing many peaceful demonstrartors, including a Japanese journalist.

We condemn all violence against peaceful demonstrators and remind the country’s leaders of their personal responsibility for their actions.

We urge the Burmese Generals to immediately and unconditionally release all political prisoners, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Pu Cin Siang Thang, and Pu Thong Kho Thang.

We appeal the Burmese Generals to stop violence and to open a process of dialogue with pro democracy leaders including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the leaders of the ethnic minorities in Burma.

We appeal China, Russia, India, Japan, ASEAN and other countries in the region to use their influence in support of the people of Burma for a positive change in Burma.

We are very grateful to Senator Richard D. Lugar for issuing a statement on protest in Burma.  We, also thanks to political leaders, civil rights leaders, government officials, religious leaders, celebrities, students, and citizens around the world, who show their solidarity with peaceful demonstrators in Burma.

We, welcome the U.N. Security Council’s decision for dispatching U.N. Secretary General’s envoy Ibrahim Gambari to Burma.  We urge the Security Council to take further steps for political change in Burma.
