反對緬甸政府武力鎮壓和平示威 PTU Condemns Violence in Suppression of Pro-Democracy Movement in Burma

香港教育專業人員協會強烈反對緬甸政府以武力鎮壓和平示威。我們支持緬甸人民以和平方式表示對民主的要求,譴責緬甸政府軍隊使用武力鎮壓示威群眾,並要求緬甸政府聆聽緬甸人民的聲音、尊重他們的人權,包括示威、集會和言論的自由。

  我們高度贊揚諾貝爾和平獎得主昂山素姬及她的民主夥伴追求民主的決心、堅持及勇氣,我們要求緬甸政府立即停止軟禁昂山素姬,並讓她和其他政黨可以自由運作,並承認緬甸人民參與公平公正公開的民主選舉的權利。

我們呼籲本港市民、全國公民和其他各國人民和我們一起譴責緬甸政府血腥鎮壓緬甸人民以和平方式爭取民主、人權和法治。在這重要的一刻,香港教育專業人員協會獻上我們的支持,並呼籲大家團結一致,爭取到底。

The Professional Teachers’ Union would like to express our grave concern over the suppression of the pro-democracy movement in Burma. We support the peaceful demonstrations organized by the Burmese people. We condemn the military junta’s use of force to crack down on the peaceful protesters and urge the junta of Burma to heed the voices of the Burmese people and respect their human rights, including the freedom of protest, freedom of assembly and freedom of expression.

We salute the courage, determination and persistence of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi and her fellow democrats in fighting for a democratic Burma. We urge the military junta to end Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest and allow her party and other political parties to operate freely and to take part in free and fair election and eventually acknowledge the outcome of the election.

We call on the people in Hong Kong, together with the people of China and members of the international community to condemn the bloody crack down and to support the courageous Burmese people in their fight for democracy, human rights and the rule of law. At this critical moment, we offer our support in solidarity.
