Global Call to Action against Burmese Military Regime
Condemn Burmese Military Regime for human rights violations in Burma
'Dignity and Justice for all of us'
On 10th December, 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations that every individual and every organ of society shall strive to promote to respect for these rights and progressive measures, national and international to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction. Burma is a member of the United Nations and voted in favor of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
However, Gross Human Rights Violations, including forced displacement, forced labour, attacked by soldiers on civilians, destruction or theft of food supplies, murder, torture, rape and political imprisonment have been widespread in Burma. Freedom of expression and Freedom of Association are non-existence. The right to life, liberty and security for Burmese citizens are denied. People of Burma have been subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention and exile. In Burma, human rights violations are committed on a daily basis by ruling military regime.
Therefore, we call upon the international community and overseas Burmese people around the world to a global day action against the military regime in Burma on 10th December, 2008. Demonstrations and a number of activities will take place in different countries on that day. We would like to encourage everyone to join with us to condemn Burmese military regime for human rights violations in Burma.
