We, Burma Campaign India (BCI), the 28 member organizations of Burmese democratic forces based India issue this statement to day, 19th June 2008, the 63rd anniversary birth day of Aung San Suu Kyi.
First and for most, We would like to state that the respected Aung San Suu Kyi is the daughter of General Aung San, the national father of Burma and she is the General Secretary of National League for Democracy (NLD), the winner party of 1990 general election but military dictatorship refused to hand over the state power.
Moreover, she is honored with the Noble Prize for Peace on 14th October 1991.
And also, we would like to state again that Aung San Suu kyi was put under house arrest start on 20th July 1989 by military dictators and released on 10th July 1995. She was once again put under house arrest on 21st September 2000 and released again on 6th May 2002. Aung San Suu Kyi and her entourage are ambushed by mobs organized by the SPDC government at Depeyin near Mandalay, in Northern Burma on 30th May 2003 and she was put under house arrest again on 27th September 2003. After last for 5 years, the military dictatorship made one year extension again her house arrest on 27th May 2008.
And also, we would like to express our view that the world recognized Aung San Suu Kyi is the leader of Democracy and Human Rights movement in Burma and she is honored many prizes but those are no useful for her to release from house arrest. The worrisome situation of till to day for Aung San Suu Kyi and her people is the question of who can rescue them practically.
Moreover, we would like to express that we disappointed on some of the silent country governments especially India for Aung San Suu Kyi and political prisoners in Burma. Really, Aung San Suu Kyi and Political prisoners who are the ethnic nationalities leaders are the main key of the solution for democracy and human rights restoration of Burma.
And also, we would like to express our opinion that the world community include UNO should know non-violent strategy will not change the dictatorship of Burma and terminate military rule. We would like to request the world community include UNO especially USA and EUROPE to make intervention by force to rescue Aung san Suu Kyi, political prisoners and all the victim people under the military dictatorship of Burma because the life of people is more important than a group of military dictatorship’s perpetuation.
In conclusion, we, Burma Campaign India (BCI) state that our ultimatum to SPDC, the military dictatorship government of Burma is “to release Aung San Suu Kyi and political prisoners immediately”.
