Subject: An appeal to the UN Security Council Call for the immediate and unconditional release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi , U Tin Oo and all political prisoners in Burma now !!!!

Dear Secretary General and Member Nations of the United Nations Security Council ,

We, the undersigned, are writing to respectfully urge you to put the situation in Burma on the formal agenda of the United Nations Security Council and to use your good offices to support the passage of a binding resolution requiring the restoration of democracy to Burma.
We warmly welcome the first United Nations Security Council briefing on Burma conducted by your office in December of 2005. However, the briefing was only a first step to bringing resolution to the current crisis in Burma. We believe the increasingly unstable situation in Burma represents a threat, not only to the people of Burma, but to international peace and security. As a result, the United Nations Security Council has an obligation to intervene.
There is great urgency in this request because the situation in Burma continues to deteriorate. As numerous reports make clear, Burma is ruled by one of the world's most brutal military juntas. Abuses being committed by the military regime include:
According to reports by BBC News, Monday, October 1, 2007 at least 4,000 or more monks have been arrested and questioned by government authorities in their recent crackdown on protests favoring democracy for the nation. It is reported that they are being held at the Government Technological Institute, the Kyaikkasan racing track and in a prison called Insein Prison. From these locations, they will be transported to prisons located in the extreme northern part of Burma. The monks have not been allowed to wear their robes and are in shackles, and some of them have been beaten. Many have also initiated a hunger strike, refusing to eat.
Although the Burmese government reports only 10 monks to have been killed, other reports from activists and media agencies say that the death toll is in the thousands.

1. The continuing detention of the world's only imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Aung San Suu Kyi.
2. Imprisoning and torturing opponents, including more than 1,100 political prisoners, thirteen of whom are fellow members of Parliament.
3. Using rape as a weapon of war.
4. Forcibly recruiting up to 70,000 child soldiers, far more than any other army in the world.
5. Causing at least 700,000 refugees, with more to come, to flee across Burma's borders into neighboring countries.
6. The SPDC Army has forced over 500,000 villagers from their land. These people remain in Burma as internal refugees. They live and barely survive in the jungles and mountains of eastern Burma. Their only desire is to return home and live in peace.
7. Burning or otherwise destroying 2,700 villages.
8. Forcing humanitarian aid organizations such as Doctors without Borders (France) and the UN's Global Fund on HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis, to leave Burma because the junta refuses to permit them to carry out their work.
9. Maintaining Burmafs status as the largest producer of illegal methamphetamines in Southeast Asia, causing devastation of individuals and families throughout the region.
10. Conducting a new military and brutal offensive against Burmafs ethnic Karen minority. The acts of aggression against the Karen include the shooting of unarmed civilians and children, burning villages, rape, torture, and mutilation.
Aung San Suu Kyi Refuses to Accept Food In a developing move, detained pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi refused to accept a food delivery to her home one week ago, according to the exiled National League for Democracy - Liberated Area. The exiled group released a statement on Monday saying that Suu Kyi has refused to accept food from members of her party for nine days.
Last week, Aung San Suu Kyi cancelled two scheduled meetings with United Nations Special Envoy Ibrahim Gambari during his visit to Rangoon. Observers said that Suu Kyis refusal to meet with the UN envoy showed her disappointment with his failed attempts to broker a solution to the countrys decades-old political standoff. Aung San Suu Kyi has been under house arrest for 13 of the past 19 years. During most of this time, her food has been supplied exclusively by her colleagues.

Daw Suu Kyi's the Nobel Peace Prize laureate on a hunger strike to protest the military-run government's refusal to hold talks on democratic reforms. Tuesday she has failed to retrieve food for nearly two weeks.
This resolution should:
(1) Require the government of Burma to work with the UN Secretary General in implementing a plan for national reconciliation.
(2) Request the UN Secretary General remain involved in the reconciliation process and require him to report back to the Council on a regular basis.
(3) Urge the Government of Burma to ensure the immediate, safe, and unhindered access to all parts of the country for the United Nations and international humanitarian organizations to provide humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable groups of the population, including internally displaced people.
(4) Call for the immediate and unconditional release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi U Tin Oo and all political prisoners in Burma.

Thank you for your attention to this most serious matter.
