Say “No” To Burma’s Sham Election

October 26, 2010

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join us at Speakers’ Corner on Saturday, 30 October 2010 from 4pm to 4.45pm to say “NO TO BURMA’S SHAM ELECTIONS” .

Come for a photo session and get your voice heard with a large placard that reads “No to Burma’s Sham Elections”. As a gesture of solidarity, do wear a red shirt for the event.

The Burmese Junta is determined to push through with elections on 7 November 2010. This is being done despite electoral laws that clearly do not allow a free and fair election.

Long-time dissident and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi remains under house arrest while many political prisoners are still held in prison. Meanwhile, the Burmese people are living in constant fear of torture and harassment under the military regime.

Join us as we stand in unity with the people of Burma. Let us come together to say “No” to the planned election – a sham election that does not represent the true voice of the people.

No to Burma’s Sham Election!

8.8.88 – A Day of Unity that Must Live On

August 26, 2010

From Burma Partnership

Twenty-two years ago on 8 August, Burma’s army brutally massacred as many as 3,000 peaceful pro-democracy demonstrators marching against increasing poverty and oppression, and calling for an end to the military dictatorship. The serious human rights violations and economic mismanagement that led to the national uprising in 1988 have continued to worsen under the current regime.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s birthday marked in Singapore

June 20, 2010



We are gathered here today in Speaker’s Corner, Singapore, to mark the 65th birthday of Daw Aung San Suu Kyii, one that she regrettably still spends in house arrest.

It is especially significant for people in Singapore to continue to advocate on behalf of her and the Burmese people, because the government of Singapore would rather support and prop up the military regime.

On this day, we reaffirm our commitment to the noble struggle for peace, human rights and democracy in Burma. It is our sincere hope that Daw Aung San Suu Kyii will one day be free to take her rightful place as the leader of Burma.

Happy Birthday Aung San Suu Kyi.
