Myanmar : URGENT ACTION to stop military junta

Since its 2020 coup that toppled Myanmar's democratic government, the military junta has killed more than 2,000 civilians including trade unionists and children, arrested more than 14,000, and displaced more than 1 million people.

This year, in a new wave of violence and impunity, the military junta has publicly executed 4 democracy activists, and is planning to execute 41 more political prisoners. The dictatorship has also sentenced State Councillor Aung San Suu Kyi to three years in prison with hard labour and dismissed the international community's demand for peace talks, including what it has committed under the ASEAN’s five-point consensus.

This has to stop. In the spirit of solidarity and democracy, the Council of Global Unions (CGU) calls on the 77th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to stop the military junta.
