Establish an Arms Embargo and a No-Fly Zone Against the Myanmar Military

Please sign this petition to support the need for the United Nations General Assembly and the United Nations Security Council to establish an arms embargo and a no-fly zone against the Myanmar military to stop the massacre of the people of Myanmar.

Why is this important?

We believe in free and fair elections.

We believe in human rights. 

We believe in the right to protest. 

We believe in peace. 

Why do we need this?

  1. On February 2nd, the Myanmar military forcibly overthrew the democratically elected government from holding office. 
  2. As of May 25, 2021, the Myanmar military has murdered over 825 people, this includes 48 children as young as five. Over 5,000 activists, journalists, civil servants and politicians have been detained with over 1800 arrest warrants still out. 
  3. Imposing curfews, at night, the military-run TV televises arrest warrants and announces civilians who have been detained that will receive the death sentence. 
  4. Bodies of detained activists, journalists, civil servants and politicians are returned back to their homes unrecognizable, with evidence of torture. 
  5. Full massacres are taking place during peaceful protests.  
  6. The Myanmar Military as of April 27, through bombings and air strikes, has internally displaced an estimated 25,000 people. 
  7. Video footage shows security forces disturbing graves of recently buried protestors to collect bodies and performing autopsies to remove evidence.

What is an arms embargo and a no fly zone?

  1. An arms embargo will stop the supply of weapons to the Myanmar military used to terrorize their own people.
  2. A no-fly zone will stop the bombing and air strikes causing death, injury, and displacement caused by the Myanmar military to their own people.

Who is supplying the Myanmar military with weapons? Why has an arms embargo and no fly zone not been passed yet?

  • China and Russia are the countries that supply the arms to the Myanmar military.
  • Currently in the U.N. Security Council, the countries who hold the Veto are China, India, Russia and Vietnam.
  • On May 18th the U.N. General Assembly indefinitely postponed a vote for an arms embargo as there was not enough support.
  • We must hold China and Russia publicly accountable, if a veto is to be used by either of them.

Please help the people of Myanmar. How many more people, children must die to establish an arms embargo and a no-fly zone? How many more protesters must be tortured for there to be swift action? Are 800 dead not enough? 

We cannot sit back and let the Myanmar military kill. As death numbers continue to rise, we must act for the people of Myanmar. We must act because we believe that everyone deserves basic human rights and freedom. 

The Myanmar military has impacted four generations of Myanmar people from basic human rights and freedom.
