Announcement No. 5
No Faith in Razali
We, New York Burmese Democratic Community, will be holding a rally
urging United Nations Security Council to take a stronger action
on Burma, on the following schedule.
United Nations Secretary-General sent a special envoy Mr. Razali
Ismail to Burma for the tenth time last month, which was after the
Depeyin slaughter by the Burma’s regime. Mr. Ismail was unable
to achieve his goal of fostering the dialogue process between two
parties, State Peace and Development Council and National League
for Democracy. Additionally, he failed to give the world detail
information on Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s health and whereabouts
after the regime’s May 30th attack. We are greatly concern
for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and NLD’s vice chairman U Tin U’s
The world has condemned Burma regime’s despicable act on
that “Black Friday”. At once, many Burmese people questioned
Mr. Ismail’s stand and commitment to NLD party and the people
Therefore, we will ask United Nations and its Security Council
to stand for the people of Burma, while Mr. Razali Ismail is in
town. We will let the world know that we do not have a complete
trust in his ability to carry on with his given duty, while holding
30% share of Iris Technology company in Burma. This is the most
crucial time for the Noble Laureate, one of the world greatest leaders,
and Burma’s democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, who is
in regime’s prison, and her 50 millions suffering people.
Our friends and some leaders from Japan and Australia and a 1988
student leader Moe Thee Zun will join us during the following schedule.
We are kindly asking for your help and participation for our movement
for democracy in Burma.
