At this critical time, with resistance mounting across the country, KPSN urges the international community to stand with the people of Burma, and cut off all diplomatic and economic support for the illegitimate coup regime. KPSN also urges foreign donors to immediately scale up cross-border humanitarian aid in Karen State and other conflict-affected areas of Burma.
