The May 18 Memorial Foundation Condemns Myanmars Military Coup!

 

 

The May 18 Memorial Foundation is alarmed by the news that the Burmese military seized power on Monday February 1 in a coup and detained civilian government leaders, including President Win Myint. This is a clear defiance of the democratically elected government and its people.

This unlawful action was made based on assumptions that the outcome of the November election was a fraudulent one. The election result was the will of the Burmese expressed via their votes and the military must respect this very will of the people.

This act of the military is a grim issue and will seriously impede Myanmar’s democratic transition, reversing its clock prior to the year of 2008 when the Burmese had made a transition to democracy.

The May 18 Memorial Foundation affirms its strong support for Myanmar’s democratic institutions and urges the military to adhere to democratic norms and rule of law and to release all the unlawfully detained immediately.

The May 18 Memorial Foundation condemns the military’s coup that has destroyed the country’s constitutional order and will closely monitor the situation to stand for democracy with the people of Myanmar in solidarity.
