The illegal military coup in Burma (Myanmar) has abolished civilian democratic government and installed an illegitimate military administration.
The results of the 2020 election demonstrated the overwhelming support for the National League for Democracy (NLD) and the abject failure of the military backed party USDP.
The military and police have killed scores of civilians and arbitrarily detained thousands of people including President Win Myint, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, leaders of state government, student leaders, artists and public figures including Australian advisor Associate Professor Sean Turnell.
Australian businesses are currently operating in Burma (Myanmar) and children of several coup leaders are studying at Australian universities.
This letter has been developed with a range of Burmese community groups and activists in Australia and reflect calls for action inside Burma (Myanmar)
Please send a letter to support targeted sanctions on the military and to return democratic rule to Burma (Myanmar).
