United Nations Must Act to Protect Religious Minorities in Burma

The Common Good Foundation, along with 90 plus organizations and individuals, has signed a joint letter calling upon the UN Secretary General to stop rampant violations of religious freedom in Burma by the Burmese military.

The Burma Human Rights Network and CSW initiated the letter to the United Nations Secretary General. Specifically, the letter notes:

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres should lead high-level efforts to increase diplomatic pressure on the junta and mobilise countries in the region to deploy their influence to end the military’s violence and repression and seek the release of political prisoners and the establishment of genuine federal democracy and respect for human rights for all.
