We Stand with Citizens of Myanmar In Their Fight for Democracy

 

Myanmar is burning. Citizens have taken to the streets to protest the injustice of the military coup and to fight for democracy. Every day, bare-handed people are standing up against the military.

 

On the First of February 2021, the military of Myanmar staged a coup to seize power and detain the State Counsellor, the President, and other members of the ruling party. As citizens began to protest, the military used deadly force. Approximately 200 of peaceful protesters are killed, including minors. More than 2000 are unjustly arrested.

 

This is a massacre. The military’s attack on unarmed citizens is unacceptable under any circumstances. We, the Science Fiction Writers Union of Korea (SFWUK) hereby state that we stand with the citizens of Myanmar in their fight for democracy and fully support their cause.

 

We demand that the military of Myanmar immediately and unconditionally cease all acts of violence against peaceful protesters. The military and the police of Myanmar must respect and uphold the values of justice, freedom and perpetuation of peace as stated in the Constitution of Myanmar adopted in 2008 by nationwide referendum.

 

SFWUK will continue to support democracy and civil rights. We join the citizens of Myanmar in spirit and raise three fingers in salute.
