This from the U.S. Campaign for Burma:
Crimes against humanity and war crimes continue to be committed by the Burmese Junta.
The Burmese regime has destroyed 3,500 ethnic minority villages, recruited tens of thousands of child soldiers, and used systematic rape as a weapon of war. The people in Burma deserve to live without these crimes.
E-mail your representative today urging them to co-sponsor Resolution 898 to help end these abuses. The resolution calls for:
1.) The United Nations Security Council to establish a Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity, war crimes, and impunity in Burma
2.) A Global Arms embargo against the Burmese junta
3.) All of Burma’s political prisoners to be freed, including Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi
Do your part by emailing your member of Congress today asking them to co-sponsor this resolution.
Our message becomes much stronger to the President and the international community if we have dozens of Representatives co-sponsoring this legislation.
Drop an email to your member of Congress here.
