Join Peace Rally at Burmese Embassy in Bangkok with the Kachins

By Kachin Community in Thailand  •  January 10, 2013

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Kachin Community in Thailand invites you to join the peace rally in Embassy of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in Bangkok in Thailand to raise awareness for armed conflict in Kachin State, Shan State, and other ethnic States.

  • Date: Friday, January 11th, 2013
  • Time: 10:00 AM
  • Theme: To Stop War Crimes and Crime against Ethnic Minorities in Burma
  • Protest locations: Embassy of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar

It has been more than a year since the outbreak of armed conflict in Northern Burma, June 9th, 2011. The civil war being fought between the Burmese government forces and Kachin Independence Army has displaced over 100,000 internally displaced personals (IDPs), to date.

The ongoing fierce aerial assaults, the use of combat helicopters, fighter jets, and shelling on unarmed innocent civilians by our own government’s forces have killed civilians, hence putting the lives of thousands of Burmese citizens in grave danger.

So far, President Thein Sein’s administration and Member of Burmese Parliament have failed to stop this genocidal war against its own ethnic citizens.

In solidarity with over 100,000 Kachin IDPs, we stand together as one people and plea the Republic of the Union of Myanmar government:

  1. To immediately halt the attacking of Kachin civilians and KIO/KIA by using of jet fighters and heavy weapon shelling to the IDP Camps along the Kachin – China border
  2. To immediately halt the military pressure or offensive war against KIO/KIA or its headquarter from Burmese troops
  3. To allow international community, INGOs and local NGOs freely to go and offer aid packages to Kachin IDPs camps from Burmese government
  4. To immediately implement political talk with ethnic armed resistance groups after withdrawing all Burmese troops to the barrack

For more information please Contact:

  1. Mr. La Nu Nan : + 66 (0) 84 6122 697
  2. Ms. Nu Tawng : + 66 (0) 85 6257 476
