Socialist International condemns actions of the military regime in Burma against Aung San Suu Kyi
30 August 2000
The Socialist International strongly condemns the actions of the military regime in Burma, in its latest attempt to restrict the freedom of movement of pro-democracy opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi and officials from her party, the National League for Democracy.
The Socialist International expresses its concerns for the welfare of Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters, blockaded in unhealthy conditions, as they struggle for their right to freedom of movement and association.
The Socialist International urges the military regime to open a political dialogue with Aung San Suu Kyi and members of the National League for Democracy, as called for by numerous United Nations resolutions, other international organisations, including the Socialist International, and the international community in general.
The Socialist International, which has steadfastly supported the people of Burma in their fight for democracy, led with such dignity by Aung San Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy, reaffirms once more its full solidarity with their on-going struggle.
