Just this February, Myanmar’s democratic government collapsed to a violent military coup. Now, the junta has been on a mission seemingly to abuse and take away basic human rights.

Last month in July, the military junta announced that it had executed four leading pro-democracy activists, including a former member of Parliament. They even have as many as 70 other political prisoners facing possible execution.

Their names were Kyaw Min Yu (“Ko Jimmy”), Hla Myo Aung, Aung Thura Zaw, and former MP Phyo Zeya Thaw. These murders make the first death sentences in Myanmar in 34 years. The Burmese community does not deserve to live their lives terrified of speaking their mind. We need to stand together for the people of Myanmar!
