We call on security forces to refrain from violence against demonstrators and civilians, who are protesting the overthrow of their legitimate government.
We unequivocally condemn the detention and ongoing arrests of political leaders, civil society activists, and civil servants, as well as the harassment of journalists.
We also denounce the military’s interruption of communications, as well as the restriction of the Myanmar people’s fundamental rights and basic legal protections.
We support the people of Myanmar in their quest for democracy, freedom, peace and prosperity. The world is watching.
