Background Information

With the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and some reforms in Burma, there is a growing perception by many people that everything is ok in Burma now. But it isn’t.

Burma still has one of the worst human rights records in the world. Hundreds of political prisoners remain in jail, attacks against ethnic minorities continue, reports of rape by Burmese Army soldiers have increased, and almost all repressive laws remain in place.

International pressure is still needed to promote human rights and democracy in Burma.

Please help us spread the word. The people of Burma still need our help.
