“The international community and the United Nations Security Council must not remain silent as the regime demonstrates yet again its contempt for universal freedoms and its disdain for the international community’s calls to release all political prisoners.

The White House, U.S.A.

…………………………………

“The regime’s crimes against humanity have gone unchallenged for too long. We believe the international community should seriously consider invoking the principle of the ‘Responsibility to Protect’ with regard to Burma.”

Mervyn Thomas, CSW’s chief executive,

……………………………………

“Burmese prisons are predominantly about the exploitation of the vulnerable. Prisoners become slaves who are robbed of everything. Unless a prisoner is willing to become an exploiter himself, he will suffer without respite. Conditions are worse for political prisoners. If they are not broken by beatings then they will be isolated indefinitely.

I’ve seen prisoners whose skin was falling off due to vitamin deficiencies. When I raised this with a visiting doctor he merely laughed. I’ve seen prisoners whose eyes have died, prisoners with blood pouring down their faces, prisoners who have almost forgotten that they are human.

Despite all the suffering of Burmese prisoners, many endure with great resilience and courage, and they showed me compassion, generosity and even humour. I am convinced that Burma will become free, but the cost to get there is incalculable.”

James Mawdlesy, the young British activist who was arrested in Burma on three ocassions and sentenced to 17 years in jail back in 1998. (He spent more than 400 days as a prisoner in Keng Tung jail, in Shan state and was released in 2000. Even then his thoughts were about the other prisoners still inside. He eventually wrote a book about his experiences.)

…………………………………

“Those detained have done nothing other than exercise their right to express themselves and have at all times underlined their willingness to work with others for a better Burma.”

Bill Rammell, a Minister at the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office

…………………………………….

“Freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law are values fundamental to Canada’s foreign policy. We call upon the Burmese regime to respect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all the people of Burma,”

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon

………………………………..

“These brave democracy activists are peaceful citizens whose only crime was to challenge the regime’s illegitimate rule.”

US State Department spokesman Robert Wood

………………………….

“The right to free and fair trial is an important factor for a legal system and its policies. These court cases have shown how much the legal system in our country has been weakened. Moreover, it’s not legally appropriate to give maximum sentence to people like Nay Phone Latt who was only on trial for the first time.”

U Nyan Win, the spokesman of the NLD and a trained lawyer

‘Nobody is above the law’

General Shwe Mann (in 2004), the junta’s third most powerful leader

အဓမၼ Ah-dhhamma (injustice) is winning now, but one day ဓမၼ dhamma (justice) will win.”

Lawyer U Aung Thein, accused by the junta for ‘Contempt of Court” and jailed 4 months.

The leaders of the National League for Democracy hail Obama’s victory “with caution,” and reiterate that “only time” will tell whether the new president will be able to “open a breach” in the isolation imposed by the ruling dictatorship in the former Burma.

“Democracy is on the march around the world, including Burma. But we need commitment to work selflessly with grassroots people until the day that a free Burma emerges. The struggle for freedom may need more time. But it is not impossible.”

(U Zaw Myint Maung, MP of the 1990 elections in Amarapura, Mandalay, still 18 years in the Burmese regime’s prison cells)
