The IYDU recognises the inalienable right of every person around the world to be free and to decide on their own governments, and supports a stable and democratic Myanmar.
Since February 1st, the country’s military has seized power after detaining Aung San Suu Kyi and other democratically elected leaders. Thousands of people from all sections of Myanmar society have joined protests and ongoing civil disobedience movements aiming to destabilise the new military regime; during protests, there is a surge in unlawful killings, including extrajudicial executions, with no apparent attempt to stop the use of lethal force.
– Recognising and respecting the democratic results of country’s elections;
– Condemning the military violence against people’s rights to protest;
– UN Security Council Members to conclude in a joint statement and condemn the violence against Myanmar’s citizens;
– Myanmar’s military to release elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and stop violent actions;
– UN member states to agree on a number of sanctions against current military forces, as long as the democratic functioning of the State is not restored.
