EU: Squeeze The Burmese Junta

This Monday October 15, the 27 foreign ministers of the European Union will meet–and decide whether to keep their word on Burma.

More than three weeks ago, the day before the junta’s brutal crackdown began, the EU warned that it would “not hesitate to reinforce and strengthen the existing sanctions regime” if the government resorted to violence. As atrocities in Burma worsen, the EU must act. By threatening the generals’ economic interests, targeted sanctions can squeeze the military and push them into negotiations without hurting the Burmese people. That’s why the democracy movement and Aung San Suu Kyi are asking us to act, saying “Please use your liberty to promote ours.”

Let’s stand with the Burmese people and urge our foreign ministers to strengthen the sanctions – while offering aid and incentives for progress.

Continue your stand with Burmese Protesters,

WOG out.
