In Memoriam

Douglas W. Payne

29 July 2009

    
The Socialist International is very sad to say goodbye to Doug Payne, a longstanding collaborator associated with numerous activities of the Socialist International since the 1980s, who recently lost his battle against cancer. A social democrat from the United States, Doug was first active in the pro-democracy initiatives of the organisation in Latin America and the Caribbean, participating in many SI Missions to countries in that region supporting democratic change and observing elections, later becoming closely involved with the organisation’s activities in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in the work of the SI Asia-Pacific Committee. He cared passionately about the environment and was an early voice calling for action on climate change and global warming. A well known face and an invaluable contributor at many Councils and Congresses of the International, he will be remembered by his friends and colleagues for his compassion, his understanding of international politics and his sharp wit.

Socialist International congratulates San Suu Kyi and NLD on historic election results


13 NOVEMBER 2015


The Socialist International warmly congratulates Aung San Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy, NLD, on their historic victory following general elections held in Myanmar on 8 November. The results of these elections, in which close to 30 million people were eligible to vote, already show that with 80% of the contested seats now declared, the NLD have more than the two thirds needed to choose the President and put an end to more than 50 years of military rule. These elections, despite the role and influence of the military, has been seen as the first openly contested poll in Myanmar in twenty five years, when the NLD won by a large majority in national elections in 1990 but Aung San Suu Kyi was prevented from taking office by the military and spent several long periods under house arrest, which only ended in 2010....

We equally stand alongside all those who embrace and defend the values we share...
