Dear GJC Friends,
We ask you to stand with us to demand an end to the systematic use of rape as a weapon of war in Burma and the exclusion of Burmese women from governance and peace negotiations.
As thousands of women from around the world gather at the United Nations for the 53rd Annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), we are urging Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to take immediate action to:
End impunity for ongoing rape and other heinous crimes being carried out by the regime and; Denounce Burma’s 2010 elections as illegal because the proposed constitution will forever exclude women from government AND give the junta and others responsible amnesty for crimes against humanity.
The United Nations must honor its legal commitments to end impunity for Burma’s criminal junta by enforcing the rights of the women of Burma to justice and power. We need YOUR voice in this global call for justice. Please sign the letter online at:
and then forward it on to five other people who you think will join us!
The letter will be delivered with your signatures to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at the end of CSW on Friday, March 13th. There are only four more days to join in this urgent call for action!
Thank you for your support,
-The GJC Team
