Stop Rape in Burma Action

The Burmese government has now signed the Declaration of Commitment to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.

The declaration contains practical and political commitments to end impunity, promote accountability, and provide justice and safety for victims of sexual violence in conflicts.

This shows pressure works. However, just because Burma has signed the declaration, it doesn’t mean that they will actually do anything about it. We have seen a great many broken promises by President Thein Sein in the past, including his failure to release all political prisoners by the end of last year, his failure to stop using child soldiers in the Burmese Army, and his failure to stop Burmese Army attacks in Kachin State.

Pressure must be maintained to ensure that President Thein Sein agrees concrete actions within a specific timeframe to actually implement the declaration.

Please write to Philip Hammond MP, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and urge him to take action to stop rape and sexual violence in Burma.
