Support Burma Watch International in seeking the Freedom of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the Freedom of Burma

In Burma, the military regime refused to transfer power to the elected Government led by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and has now put her in prison for the third time. The military regime is an unlawful and illegitmate goverment.

Members of Burma Watch International have been active and effective in seeking the freedom of our leader "Daw Aung San Suu Kyi" and the 50 million people in Burma who are severely oppressed under the rule of military dictators. We ask you for your support in our efforts.

While we welcome you to join as a member, we welcome just as much your willingness to allow us to say you share and support the goals of Burma Watch International. You can indicate that willingness by (1) signing a statement of support or (2) sending an email to

The Manassas Call for Worldwide Solidarity for a Democratic Burma

On July 12 and 13, 2003, about thirty compatriots from Burma of diverse backgrounds convened in the shadow of Virginia's Manassas Battlefields of the American Civil War, to reaffirm their support and commitment to the people's freedom struggle in our ancestral homeland.

For two days, they explored ways to build a worldwide solidarity movement for Burma's freedom and deliberated their resolve. At this gathering in the shadow of Manassas, Virginia, where the American peoples fought to defend their Union, they embarked on building a Global Solidarity Movement for a free Burma. They set a long-term goal to establish an expatriates' forum and a fair and democratic process for all compatriots who care about Burma and her future.

To let the whole world know of the epic struggle of the people of Burma for their inalienable rights articulated in the American Declaration of Independence, demanded by the French Revolution and enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, they called upon all compatriots, and friends, the world over to descend on Washington, DC and participate in "Global Solidarity Rally for Burma's Freedom" and/or organize and coordinate similar rallies in the world's capitals on December 10, 2003, the International Human Rights Day. Their immediate goal is to get a rally of 500-1,000 expatriates from Burma in Washington, DC.

Than Aung, Vice-President of Burma Watch International, participated at Manassas and is one of the signatories of the Manassas Call.
