DVB Athan: A Message for the International Community from Burma

Burma’s youth want their voices to be heard by the international community: #whatshappeninginmyanmar

“The Dictators tell us that the democratic world is crumbling. But here in Myanmar we are fighting for a democratic future. The fascists claim that social justice makes people weak, but these are the values which are inspiring normal people here to do great things. They are the values which we have set aside our lives to stand up for; which our friends have gone to prison and been martyred for. The coup regime would like for you to believe that our struggle is doomed. But we are just getting started. We will never live at peace with dictatorship, and we will never stop fighting until Myanmar democracy has secured its place in a world of liberty and social justice for all. But we need the world’s help. Foreign governments must stop funding this illegitimate coup regime which is waging a war against Myanmar people. In particular, we call upon the Thai government to stop buying gas from the junta. This week, Thailand is hosting leaders from across the Asia-Pacific region at an APEC Economic Summit, which aims to ‘support sustainable economic growth and prosperity.’ But it should be clear by now that authoritarian violence is the greatest threat to stability and economic growth around the world today. Here in Myanmar, they have plunged the country into chaos. Every day businesses are destroyed and villages are burned, and thousands more refugees are created. Just a few years ago, Myanmar was supposed to be, and was in fact becoming, one of the new frontiers of global economy growth. But now, thanks to the military junta’s genocidal violence and insane lust for power, Myanmar’s economy is being driven into the ground. How can the Thailand government and other attendees to the APEC Economic Summit talk about ‘sustainable economic growth’ if they are actively enabling these terrorists?”
