Milk Tea Alliance Indonesia memulai petisi ini kepada Association of Southeast Asian Nations

Children, men, women, doctors, teachers, activists. More than 700 civilians were killed during the demonstration to defend democracy and denounce the coup d’etat by the Myanmar military junta.

Thousands of civilians were also arrested, from actors, influencers, doctors and lecturers. Everyday civilians became casualties. But the people of Myanmar do not back down. They still fight for a democratic government.

A lot of countries have condemned the Myanmar military junta, including leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Indonesian President Joko Widodo in his speech invited ASEAN countries to gather in order to discuss the situation in Myanmar. A move supported by Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei Darussalam, this year’s chair for ASEAN.

However we were shocked, knowing that the Myanmar representative coming to the summit is no other than the leader of the junta, Min Aung Hlaing. Why is he the one coming, instead of the democratically elected government of Myanmar?

ASEAN adopts a consensus voting system. Meaning in order to make a decision, every member state has to be in favor, as everyone has their own veto power. Hence, it will be possible that the military junta vetoes any resolution that is going to be made.

Through this petition, we are asking the ASEAN leaders to object to the presence of the Myanmar military junta in the ASEAN Summit, and give the righteous place to the legitimate and democratic government of Myanmar.

ASEAN should also coordinate with the UN and the UN Human Rights Council, to ensure that humanitarian aid can be received by the people and refugees from Myanmar, INCLUDING the Rohingyas.

If needed, we ask ASEAN to temporarily suspend Myanmar’s membership in the association.

The summit should give a little bit of hope to the people of Myanmar. Sign this petition, and show that together we support them to get peace and welfare.
