40,000 People from Burma Appeal to UN Security Council

  • VOA News

More than 40,000 refugees, migrant workers and civil society organizations have signed a petition calling on the United Nations Security Council to address Burma-related issues at an upcoming meeting in October.

The petition, presented by the Women's League of Burma, outlines issues such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic, child malnutrition, child soldiers, and sexual violence against women.

It is calling on the U.N. Security Council to urge Burma's military government to enact measures that would promote "human security" for people in the country.

The petition is also calling for Burma to release democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners, and to withdraw troops from ethnic minority areas.
