Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for United Nations Security Council to hold emergency meeting
11 August 2009
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for United Nations Security Council to hold emergency meeting in order to send ultimate ultimatum demanding to free Aung San Suu Kyi or face collective practical action taken. We call for world leaders to take concrete immediate collective actions. United Nations Security Council must take practical action on Burma. Now is the time.
International Community has been calling for military regime to release Aung San Suu Kyi but junta ignores their pleas by passing down Aung San Suu Kyi to 18 months under house arrest again. This is the junta’s cunning act which is tantamount to turning their back on dialogue and ultimately national reconciliation.
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) warned very first in advance on 12 May 2009 that junta is plotting the ploy to imprison Aung San Suu Kyi. Now, the most fearful thing which we had anticipated has come true.
Aung San Suu Kyi once said that “It is even appropriate or justified for the international community carries out the responsibility to intervene in the internal affairs of another country whose power are creating hell for the population. The international community as a whole should recognise that it has got responsibilities. It can’t ignore grave injustices that are going on within the borders of any particular country.”
Burma crisis is in pivotal state. In Burma, there is no rule of law and junta is always above the law. Aung San Suu Kyi was elected by the citizens of Burma in the 1990 General Election. Ironically that election was conducted by the same generals who suppress Burma today. International Community must take united and coordinated action through United Nations Security Council to force junta to come to dialogue table and to free Aung San Suu Kyi along with thousands of political prisoners.
