DVB Athan: A Rally to Denounce the Death Penalty in Burma

Human rights activists held a rally at the Three Kings Monument in Chiang Mai, Thailand on Dec. 6 against the planned execution of seven student activists in Burma. Organizers gave speeches condemning the military council in Burmese, Thai, and English.

“We the young Thai and Myanmar students and activists seriously requests to stop the violence and oppression of the Burmese people,” an organizer said. A prayer and minute of silence was held at the end of the rally for the students. The student activists were handed the death sentence on Nov. 30. #whatshappeninginMyanmar
