The courageous actions of ordinary people and political leaders alike to stand up for the principles of human rights and democracy in the past 3 years prove that the spirit of 8888 is alive and well in Burma. That these actions are being done despite threats of death, detention or persecution, show that the peoples of Burma refuse to give up on their vision of a free and democratic Burma.Altsean-Burma salutes the courage of the peoples of Burma, both in and outside the country, in their struggle.

We support the common aspiration of the diverse ethnic groups for peace, justice and development and renew our determination to see the achievement of political reforms in Burma in the near future. We call upon the international community, in particular, the governments of ASEAN, India, China and East Asia, to actively support political and economic reforms in Burma. We urge them to support initiatives to bring Burma before the UN Security Council as a means to hasten reforms.

8888 - Don't Forget, Don't Give Up!
