TAÑADA: “LET’S UNITE FOR DEMOCRACY & THE PEOPLE OF BURMA”

 TAÑADA:  “LET’S UNITE FOR DEMOCRACY & THE PEOPLE OF BURMA”

 Rep. Erin R. Tañada calls for international cooperation and national reconciliation in support of the struggle for democracy of the people of Burma.

 “The government’s militaristic response to the growing national clamor for the release of all political prisoners and true democracy is very disturbing,” said Tañada

 As Chairman of the House Committee on Human Rights, Rep. Tañada sees the threats of a possible crackdown of militant protesters only shows an utter disregard of people’s rights to express grievances towards the government.

 Continued suppression and oppression in Burma have led to discontentment pushing the people, even the monks, to the streets and show their unity for fundamental changes in the government. The government’s continued callousness has rendered them inutile to serve the people of Burma and now must yield to the growing clamor for a better and truly democratic nation.

  Rep. Erin R. Tañada appeals for international intervention to push the government to pave the way to a clear transition towards democracy and a government that respects and promotes human rights.
