Sign Petition to Protect the People of Burma

NEW YORK, (RUSHPRNEWS) October 4, 2007- Just hours after the departure of a U.N. envoy, Myanmar’s junta continued a violent crackdown on its own people. We need to act now to protect monks, activists and innocent civilians from further abuses.

Reportedly, more than 10 people have been killed, and thousands of pro-democracy protesters have been detained. “It is an emergency,” said Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, the U.N. human rights investigator for Myanmar.

Myanmar has an appalling human rights record. Thousands of political prisoners are detained in deteriorating prison conditions and the use of child soldiers, forced labor, and torture are common.

The recent violence has shown the world the extent of Myanmar’s brutal crimes. Urge the United Nations to take urgent steps to get Myanmar’s junta to stop the crackdown.
