Burma: Twentieth anniversary of uprising

Friday, August 8, 2008

Foreign Office Minister Meg Munn commented on the anniversary of the 1988 uprising in Burma when pro-democracy protests were crushed by the military.

 

She said:

 

“Twenty years ago today, the people of Burma rose up peacefully calling for the restoration of democracy and an end to misrule. These protests were violently suppressed with almost unimaginable brutality. We pay tribute to the thousands who were killed in 1988, as well as to those who continue to struggle so bravely for freedom, democracy and human rights in Burma.  

The UK’s commitment to support Burma’s people is steadfast. The government renews its call on the regime to release all political prisoners, including Aung San Suu Kyi, and to begin credible talks with the opposition and ethnic groups so they can play their rightful role in determining Burma’s future.”
