SOUTH ASIANS IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF MYANMAR

undefined

Since the 1 February 2021 military coup took place in Myanmar, the situation in the country has become a humanitarian crisis. The struggle for democracy has turned into an armed struggle. More than 15700 people have been arbitrarily detained and at least 2300 people have been killed according to the non-governmental organization Assistance Association for Political Prisoners.  Thousands of people have been displaced and some have fled to neighbouring countries. 

SAHR, representing South Asians, stands together with the people of Myanmar who have risked their lives in demanding peace and political independence. We support their demands to restore the democratic order and for Myanmar’s elected leaders to be released immediately. 

As a part of SAHR’s initiatives to strengthen the call of the people of Myanmar, we will be uploading published newspaper articles and statements related to the coup and the situation in Myanmar on this web page.
